Valentine’s Day is finally here and you are either fully prepared or, like many of us, you totally forgot about it and are scrambling to make last-minute plans.
With all the romantic options available to make the day even more special, food is always a winner. Whether you’re going all out, sharing this day with friends or just want to eat a great meal from one of your favourite local restaurants, UberEATS is the perfect option this Valentine’s Day.
Chocolate, roses and ice cream
If you’re a Joburger and have the UberEATS app, you’ll be able to order strawberry chocolate roses and various tasty food gifts from Edible Bouquets to spoil your loved one. If you’re someone’s secret admirer, these edible gifts will be a delicious surprise.
Roses and chocolates are always a win, so for something traditional try popular Cape Town restaurants such as Table 13 or Rush Bars, who will be offering these as a complimentary gift. For a secret surprise, grab your romantic meal for two from The Creamery.
Skip the queues
Valentine’s Day is one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants, so why not skip the queues and stay home this year? If this sounds like ideal but your homemade dinner plans aren’t panning out, or you know your cooking skills aren’t up to scratch, UberEATS has your back. Some of their great restaurant partners in Johannesburg have designed awesome meal options for two, such as Casalottis, Polpetta and Momo Bauhaus, or why not order a sushi box for two from Active Sushi in Cape Town?
In a long-distance relationship?
Thanks to technology, those in long-distance relationships can still have a great dinner date. Order the same meal in Johannesburg and Cape Town from Kauai Nu, Primi Piatti or Col’Cacchios and share a special moment together no matter how far apart you are.
Foodies as friends
There will be great menu options from various restaurants on the app to make this day memorable.
Ordering through the app is the perfect way to save money. If it’s your first time trying UberEats, download the app and enter the promo code BAE100 at checkout to enjoy up to R100 off your first order.
