With February here, it’s time to plan for that special date for that special someone. Here are 5 places to check out this Valentine’s Day that sets the mood for you and your dream date:
1. The Adventurous Date: Los Indios Bravos (Boracay)
Must Try: Seafood Platter, Sausage & Mash, Sun Stoked Blonde Ale
Known for its prominent Filipino concept, Los Indios Bravos is probably Boracay’s best hidden gem! Having a speakeasy meets gastropub feel, the walls are decorated with photos from the time of the intelligent indios back in the 1900’s. Aside from the unique interiors, they also serve great food and locally brewed craft beers (on tap, by the way) from all over the Philippines. Great place for a date by the beach!

For a simple but definitely yummy brunch, head over to Providore at SM Aura, Taguig. Their menu consists of beautifully plated American and Filipino dishes that truly satisfy your cravings.

The restaurant interior feels very cozy and the smell of freshly baked bread wafts in the air, tempting you to stay and chat.
4. The Netflix and Chill Date: Landers (Quezon City)
Must Try: Manhattan Supreme Pizza, Nipa Brew Assorted 4-Pack
Who says you have to go out for a Valentine’s Date? A lot of people would rather just stay home and relax on the couch, while watching a movie beside their loved one. Especially since Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday this year, it would be nice to chill at home after work. But before you do, check out Landers and grab yourself some stuff to bring home!
