Valentine's Day is a pretty special day for those in love. In fact, it's a pretty cool day for a lot of people. Perhaps you're finally going to tell someone how you feel or maybe you'll discover you have a secret admirer! Whether you're treating your partner to a delicious dinner, or you're trying to impress someone new, there's a reason the Italians have got it right when it comes to speaking the language of love. Food plays a big part in winning someone's heart and Italy makes some of the best food around.
There are plenty of Italian takeaways across Dubai, serving up that extra something special for this day and beyond. It's all about the romantic dinner experience, something Dubai is well versed in. Of course, while these suggestions for the perfect three-course meal are ideal for indulging on February 14th, don't forget that there are 364 other days in the year for you to show someone that you care but here are three fabulous plates to get you started.
1. Starter - Seafood
Seafood has long been respected as a fancy food of sorts, something you serve to someone who's more than just a friend. Al Grissino has nailed aesthetics and flavour with this one. The rich, buttery flavour of their Grilled Scallops is perfectly coupled with a tasty caper sauce. The same also applies to their mandarin marinated shrimp scampi with the citrus perfectly complimenting the silky texture of the shrimp. Of course, we hope that's not the only thing being complimented tonight!
2. Main - Steak in Truffle Sauce
What screams extravagance? Steak? Yep. Cream? Yep. Truffle? Absolutely! At Pax Italian restaurant, their best dish has it all. This one's a mouthful and a half (it's full name is Millefoglie di Filetto con Salsa Tartufata, Funghi Porcini e Pure de Patate). For those who don't speak Italian, that's tender fillet medallions, cooked just the way you like it, and served up with a creamy truffle and mushroom sauce. The dish is finished with seasoned potato puree. A great steak goes a long way, so make that your main this Valentine's Day.
3. Dessert - Classic Tiramisu
Forget worrying about the calories, you've committed to a big meal now! A three-course meal ensures you've long enough to chat after dinner, which is great for a date that's going well. Tiramisu Cafe dishes up – yep, you guessed it – Tiramisu and we think it's some of the best around. This classic Italian favourite is the perfect way to round up an amazing meal, with its layers upon layers of fluffy cake, coffee flavourings, whipped sugar and mascarpone cheese. What makes this one stand out? It's smothered in another Italian invention... Nutella. This is romantic Valentine's Day at it's best.
