The perfect date night, from start to finish


The perfect date night, from start to finish

Planning your next date night but not sure what you should eat or do? Well take a seat, I've organised your night's menu from start to finish, the only thing you have to do is call your sibling, mother, father, grandparents or friend to mind the kids or your pet for the next few hours and enjoy a selfishly fun night to yourself.

First things first, dinner

Deciding what to eat with your significant other or friends can sometimes be a long an arduous task, and if anyone is as indecisive as me then first I feel sorry for you and second, usually your wishing for a strong little angel on your shoulder to make all food related decisions for you without change of mind. With that being said let me help you decide. Whenever I am in a state of war with my decision making I default to Asian food. My go-to favourite dishes are definitely dumplings if I feel like Chinese cuisine or Pad See Ew if I'm in the mood for Thai. A must-try for delicious Asian food at Woden is Au Lac Vegetarian Cuisine, or Vietnam House.

Now if someone in your party is not a fan of Asian food, then a great back-up that is sure to please is either Italian or burgers. Go back to basics with pizza, pasta, burgers and mouth-watering fries. With a few options to choose from you should head over to Grill'd or RASHAYS.

Catch the latest movie

Dinner is now sorted, yum! So, you spent some time organising baby and puppy sitters, or maybe you made that extra effort to actually get out of the house (if like me you're a hermit crab then you can relate to the latter) so there's no way you want to go home already.

Now it's time to catch the latest movie hitting theatres. I'm a massive movie buff and could go to the movies at least once a fortnight! Whilst at dinner whip out your phone and check movie sessions to catch the latest flick, whether it’s a killer action movie like Tomb Raider or a romance like Love, Simon, one of these is sure to please.

Can't miss dessert

I know what you're going to ask me now, what if I have to wait a good hour before the movie starts? Don't fret my friend there is nothing better than enjoying ice-cream, waffles or churro's before hitting the movies and digging into all that popcorn. Get into something sweet before you start on savoury, remember this is a date night from start to finish - no holding back! Visit San Churro and enjoy a tasty post-dinner dessert.

Finish on a high note

So now your tummy is almost full, however you're still prepared to squeeze in that buttery popcorn, relax and enjoy a movie. Don't forget if your date night started after 6pm and you entered the carpark at or after this time then your parking is free! How amazing is that, I told you this would be the perfect dinner date, from start to finish.
