I love drooling over most online menus Reminds me of a time we ate out more often, rather than ordering in ;P The last time I ate at Scusa Me was before the k.d lang / Tony Bennett concert when I was pregnant. We'd bolted home from work and had to zip straight over. No worries, says I, we'll have a bite at Southbank and walk to the Arts centre from there .. it was a mid-week, so I thought we'd be fine. Anyway, all the restaurants were PACKED. There was a few other things going on in town, so everyone was out and about. Went into Scusa Me after seeing a tiny table for 2 free. We nabbed it, and I explained our now-dilemma ( we had to eat and go in like, 20minutes tops ! ). The waiter didn't even blink. I told him we'd eat whatever we were told to, so he had a quick word to the kitchen, and pointed out a few selections for our consideration. Ever so helpful. We had a fabby quick entree each, tipped well, and dashed off to enjoy the show. Was a fabulous night -- aus.food passes 79:6 !
