I'm fairly sure the conditions state that you need to mentioned it when ordering. I see no harm in this either.

I like your style :D

I’m about to use PP in a restaurant for first time in a couple of weeks. Do I need to announce that I will be using PP before I order, or can that be sorted when paying?
My experience is that they ask you to declare it upfront - especially in Australia. So that is what I do. You'll often see a notice near the outside menu board or near the till, detailing their policy regarding these cards

We are staying at the Rydges at SYD tonight ready for a 7.30am flight tomorrow. When we did this a couple of years ago we were able to go to Mach2 and use the Priority Pass card without any problems as we weren't aksed to show our boarding pass but as others have reported here they now want to see your boarding pass and it has to be the same day so we weren't able to use the PP card this time. The lady at the counter told us that it has changed and they now have to check everything carefully.

Few weeks ago I just showed my inbound boarding pass to access Chicken Confidential (T1) as I didn't have my boarding flight for the next day yet. No issues with the boarding pass and they did look pretty closely.

If I am to purchase the unlimited PP, then does this mean that I could essentially use $35 value at one restaurant, and then $35 at another on the same day? Or is there some kind of procedure in place in order to prevent such..

Nothing to stop you, in the same way as you can enter multiple lounges on the same day (I went to 3 in BKK last week)

Showers in all. I preferred the feel and bar of the Oman Air lounge.
There are some pics in my trip report below:
