We’re no stranger to UberEats, some of our favourite places to order from on a lazy pajama-filled weekend when we don’t want to venture past the front gate include COS 18 Leigh, Cafe Paparazzi and Jarmer’s Kitchen – you can even place an order for a couple of bottles of UTONIC to be delivered straight to your door during your fifth self-inflicted hangover in a row.
Whether you have been with your partner for a month, a year or a decade, having regular date nights is crucial to help keep the spark alive. We totally understand that a nice meal out can be expensive and sometimes Netflix and chill just doesn’t cut the mustard in the romance department (no matter how many candles you light).
Up until just last year, ordering in was mainly reserved for pizza and garlic bread: not exactly a romantic meal. Thankfully, since UberEATS has hit the scene it’s been easier than ever to get quality food delivered straight to your front door. While cheaper than dining out, many figure UberEATS is out of their price range, but we’re here to burst the bubble of lies and give you a list of incredible food for under $30 to turn your date night from zero to hero.
So set the mood, disconnect from the outside world and pull out the fancy cutlery with our list of the top dishes in Adelaide that are perfect for sharing and exploring world cuisines, sure to spice up even the most monotonous routine.
