About Excuse Me Waiter

Excuse Me Waiter is a documented food adventure run by two hungry Gen Y food fanatics DK & Yvn. They can often be found roaming Sydney in search of interesting foods from food courts to high-end restaurants.

Manpuku, Kingsford

In my uni days, I used to spend a lot of lunchtimes around Kingsford at all the little restaurants on Anzac Parade – but this time visiting as a non-student, I was quite amazed at how much the restaurant offerings in the area have changed in terms of variety.

In the past, suburban cafe/delis seemed to exist due to convenience, being an all-in-one spot to pick up some groceries and grab a coffee or sandwich. Favoloso is a modern incarnation of this concept – it feels much more like a cafe with a deli conveniently tacked on, rather than the other way around, thanks to their chic red interior and Italian framed posters on the wall in the dining area.
