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.

Whilst walking around the Bronte area, we stumbled upon the Sicilian inspired cafe/deli combo called Favoloso at the crossroads of an intersection. We needed some sustenance before attempting the coastal walk from Bronte to Bondi via Tamarama, so we found ourselves a table inside. 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.
