Get your heart racing

12 February, 2021

Feel the love on Valentine’s Day with Chatswood’s hottest date night destinations

Lovers, it’s time to get your Valentine’s Day plans sorted. This date dedicated to all things love, devotion and romance is always busy with favourite restaurants booking out well in advance. 

For Valentine’s Day 2021, as venues are limited in capacity due to government regulations, that’s more true than ever. Pre-planning for romance takes on a whole new meaning, as nothing’s going to be more of a passion-killer than rocking up to your dinner destination only to be turned away because you didn’t book. 

Happily though, it’s not all bad news – if your favourite restaurant is already at capacity, plenty of places are still offering delivery and pick up options so you can bring the romance right to your door. Enjoying a delicious meal before settling down to Netflix and chill might just be your date’s perfect Valentine’s Day.

Spice up your love

Want something to get your heart racing? Chilli is the perfect food to get you in the mood for love. They contain endorphins to boost your mood, plus capsaicin gets your tongue tingling.

Booking a table at Spicy Joint is a guaranteed way to get all the chilli you and your love can handle. China Chilli also has plenty of spicy favourites to warm up even the coldest of hearts.

Be my little dumpling

Who doesn’t love dumplings? No-one, that’s who! Sharing and dipping dumplings into sauces is a perfect casual meal to enjoy with your love. Get some of the best dumplings in town at The Dumpling House just near Woolworths at Chatswood Interchange.

Put a fresh spin on Lady and the Tramp

Forget sharing spaghetti and meatballs ala the classic Disney movie, Lady and the Tramp. Take your shared noodle slurping in a different direction with a bowl of noodle soup. Whether your preference is ramen from Ippudo, laksa from Ya Malaysia, or a wonton soup from 1Ton, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Chatswood Interchange.

But what if you really want to keep things impulsive?

It’s Sydney in summer. And that makes it the perfect time for a romantic Sunday afternoon picnic or dinner under the stars. The weather’s warm and there’s plenty of places to snuggle with your love under the shade of a gorgeous tree, ideally alongside a beautiful body of water. Luckily, it’s easy to hop on a train to Milsons Point to grab a spot under the Harbour Bridge, or drive to any number of breathtaking spots around the city, including Lane Cove National Park just at the bottom of Fullers Road.

BYO blanket and cushions, and dine on a selection of cheeses, dips and antipasto that you can pick up easily from Woolworths. BWS has all your favourite drinks, or if alcohol-free is your preferred tipple, why not grab a Chatime to go?
