The best comes last

No, it is not homemade. Nor was it cooked the way Mum would have done it.

Best rice pudding in Chichester

But it is definitely a rice pudding one wants to go back to, for more of.  It can be found it at the Minerva Bar & Grill served chilled, with fresh raspberries as well as a coulis and polenta tuile.

The restaurant is on the first floor above the Brasserie at the Minerva Theatre which opens for pre-show dining. So it calls for an early start and a reservation is advisable.

Good steak Chichester

I ordered the sirloin steak and a side salad chop with dressed tarragon and white Sussex crab as a starter.

Pre-show dinner Chichester Festival Theatre

The food was unpretentious, the restaurant relaxed and informal and I thoroughly enjoyed one of the best prepared and tastiest meals I have had in the UK

Breakfast on the Beach

[Edit] 23/03/22
More changes unfortunately. Billy’s is no longer the Surfers Cafe it was. It had a lick of paint during the Covid lockdown and it is now a looking a lot sleeker. Another chic seafood cafe. No longer that different and no Surfers Breakfast.

Ever since Charlie Harper’s changed their menu, doing away with their Brunch Hash special, I have been looking for different.

Billys on the Beach East Wittering Chichester Harbour

A search which took me down to East Wittering for a breakfast at  Billys on the Beach.  I can’t remember when I last ordered kippers for an early morning breakfast and soon discovered that I have forgotten how to peel it away from the bones .

But I managed.

Surfers breakfast at Billys on the Beach East Wittering

Keeping to different was the Surfers Breakfast which was a tomato, pepper base with cheese and I seem to remember chourizo. This topped with two fried eggs with chunks of bread.

Breakfasts in Chichester

It was different and Billy’s on the Beach is just one of a number of interesting restaurants and cafes to be found in East Wittering. Suspect it has got everything to do with there is a surfing community making it worth another look.
