“Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate“, says an inspiration specialist from North America, Doctor Alan Wolfelt. And he is absolutely right. The right dish can say more than a thousand words. On a date you may be too nervous to express what you feel, but delicious food will never betray. Not many of us are great cooks and a date with a person you care about is definitely not the time for experimenting. The easiest and safest way to get a perfect dinner on your table is to order it. We are lucky to live in the era of take-away and quick delivery. Here, to fire up your culinary fantasy, are the best options to go for, so your date is impressed and happy.
1.Food on a home date should be easy to serve and eat. Choose antipasti style things, like crispy chicken wings from Late Night Munchies or antipasto italiana and assorted bruschetta from il Patio and Planeta Sushi restaurant. Or maybe cheese snack plate or meat snack plate from Coco Loco, depending on your preferences. Put some candles and flowers for the atmosphere and you can eat, talk and relax.
2. It is a date, not a family lunch at your granny’s, so keep in mind that the food you choose should not be too heavy for digestion. In this case it is an addition to the evening, not its main star. Seafood is a stylish and relevant option. Mussels in white wine cream sauce from Tex-Mex Republic will be great to accompany a glass of cold Chardonnay on a summer evening.
3.What you eat on a date should be something unique, something you don’t eat every day. It should mark that this event means more than just a regular chat in the kitchen over a drink. For example, if you both are not vegetarian and even less, vegan, order something from this range. New tastes always introduce new emotions. Sweetcorn with pine nuts and Chinese black mushrooms with broccoli sounds traditional enough, but with a note of something exotic. Order it from Shangri-La and check yourself.
4.According to the American cartoonist Charles M. Schulz – “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt“. It is difficult to disagree. Montezuma chocolate cake from Tex-Mex Republic will definitely not hurt those, who are in love. See for yourself – cherry biscuit, rum, chili, dark chocolate served with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream. Doesn’t it sound like a sweet dream? Or maybe chocolate fondant is something what you’d like? Then go for the one with berry sauce and ice cream from Arena 29.
5.Well, yes, it is downright trivial, but who wouldn’t love a big set of sushi for a special dinner. For a date you can choose love sets in a form of heart, offered by Panda Sushi and SushiGo. Hearts are not only for Valentine’s Day!
6.Sometimes it is the name that counts more than what’s inside. However, if we talk about Big Bad Bagels, a flashy name is always justified by fresh ingredients and great taste. Salami in Rome with mozzarella, special chilli-tomato sauce and greens is more than a bagel; it is a ticket to Rome. The same as Prosciutto in Modena with melon and cream cheese and Ham in Madrid with cheese, Russian sauce, tomato, boiled egg and greens. Choose any of those for a homely feel of your date and a cosy evening for two is guaranteed.
