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.

I have to admit I’m not much of a morning person, which means on weekdays I hardly ever go out for breakfast before work. But I will make an exception more often now, because I had a lovely start to my week when I dropped into Gowings Bar and Grill to try out some of the newer items on their breakfast menu – nothing like a great meal to fight Mondayitis!

Product Review: Dish’d Food Store

Gourmet is usually the last word you would associate with frozen home delivered meals, but new kid on the block Dish’d is looking to change that, with a wide selection of tasty and yes, gourmet meals delivered straight to your door the next business day after you order online at www.dishd.com.au. All you need to do is heat up the meals (or defrost them if they’re a dessert) and in about 5-10 minutes, you’ve got yourself a pretty decent dinner when you get home from work!
