Your turn to pick the next date night destination? Here are some creative options of dinner for two, that won’t break the bank. They say sharing is caring, so cozy up and split these following dishes with your love one or best pal.
Tâ Bom Korean Cuisine
At this authentic Korean-style eatery you and your date can share one of their signature hot plates. A fully equipped cast iron round with your choice of sizzling meat or protein, surrounded by egg and corn as sides. We advise adding to it, melted cheese for a little extra. You also get the typical chilled and spicy Korean side dishes, to round out your meal with.

At this Mexican cantina share one of their memorable molten cheese fondues for two. Liquid cheese served in a volcanic stone bowl, with hot tortilla chips of dipping. Take turns feeding each other long strings of gooey, melted cheese. And for a little more substance add in some chorizo, sautéed mushrooms, or fresh salsa.

Hot pots can get a little pricy, so take away all the customization, and what you have left is a pre-set serving of meat, vegetable, and noodle; all soaking up tasty broth. A visual feast served in a wok, kept boiling by a box. They say it is meant as an individual serving, but one is plenty for two.

Davie Dosa Company
Share a crispy fried Dosa, from the go-to place for Southern Indian cuisine on Davie. A large thin crepe stuffed with potato and curved to a crisp. Pinch off a bite and eat it like a chip, or use it as a spoon to scoop up seasoned potato. Best shared for a more interactive dining experience.
