We know what you're thinking - it's Valentine's Day in three days and you haven't booked anything. But fear not - we have your (very) last minute plans sorted.
So, whether you've acquired a last minute date (go you!) or simply lost track of time - there is no need to panic! We've compiled a list of the best, last-minute V-Day plans that will make it seem as though you've been planning this since last February.
If you're not already a lover of Fratelli Fresh, first of all HOW, and second of all WHY? If we could ask this place to be our Valentine, we would. Not only are they bringing back some of their classic dishes like deep-fried polenta with gorgonzola & mushroom sauce (need we say more...?), but they are supercharging their happy hour. Yep, you read that right.
With seven new pizzas added to the menu, $10 deserts and a budget friendly set menu, there is a sea of choice for you and your date to have the ultimate romantic lunch, dinner, or even just afternoon drinks. So, pick up the phone and make that booking for two this Sunday - and with plenty of locations, there's bound to be one close by.
We know what you're thinking - burgers might not exactly be what you had in mind for date night - but hear us out! What is more thoughtful than planning a picnic for your special someone? What easier (and tastier) way to spoil your Valentine than by grabbing some delicious Betty's burgers and shakes (or a bottle of red from The Hidden Sea if you're feeling extra romantic), and heading down to the park to enjoy the sunset. All you'll need is a picnic rug, and Betty's has got the rest covered!
El Camino Taco
You've probably heard of this Tex-Mex classic, BUT have you heard of their latest launch: Taco Topia? If you're Valentine is a lover of Mexican food, this is the place for you. With a dozen different Taco Topia combos and line-up of legendary Margs, this is the perfect last-minute spot to wine and dine your special someone.
With several restaurant locations spread out across Sydney, this is a great spot to get in a late reservation, and will leave your Valentine feeling like the most lucky taco-eating, marg-drinking person in the world (you're welcome).
So, skip the stress this year and let us save the day with these ultimate last-minute suggestions.
Happy V-Day Lovers!
