After the wedding commotion died down, it was time for Tom and I to show my parents and aunt some of England.

Maria’s English co-worker wrote down some suggestions for places to visit, and when we heard that Brighton was on the list, we didn’t hesitate to plan a day there, especially since it had been quite a while since we’d been last.

The days just kept getting more beautiful as their visit went on, making me look like a drama queen for complaining about how wet and cold it always is here. I’m sticking to that story– they just got lucky this time!parents visiting brighton

After a nice stroll on the pier and along the seafront, we set out to find some food. Tom recommended we go to Bill’s, which he’s talked about but has never brought me to (how rude.)menu Bill's brighton bills brighton
If you’re ever in Brighton, I highly recommend a visit to this quirky place. The atmosphere and decor was fun and relaxed, the staff were nice, but most importantly, the food was on point. bills halloumi burger
My mom and I both ordered a Halloumi burgers (my parents and Maria had become big fans of the cheese by this point) that had sweet chili sauce and some other goodness on it.

My dad opted to try the fish and chips… with mushy peas (Americans don’t quite get mushy peas, the name is strange but they do taste pretty good!)bills fish and chips

Maria and Tom both opted for chicken skewers with cous cous and tzatziki. Bill's Brighton Maria bill's brighton mom

And it wasn’t long until my dad, the king of ice cream, found this place, where you can build your own milkshake. A nice way to end the day in Brighton…

    And Bill’s is just amazing isn’t it? I love Brighton but no trip is complete without paying this place a visit!
