Valentine’s Day Eats: Nearby restaurants to visit this holiday

Valentine’s Day is on the horizon, and whether you’re looking for somewhere good to eat with your significant other, your best friend, or just as a treat-yourself meal, this article has options for everyone! Don’t forget that many of these options deliver through popular services like GrubHub and UberEats, so they’re just as nice for a cozy evening in as for a fun night out.

Every meal option on the list is given a rating out of five. These ratings take into account the taste of the food, price points, location, ambience, and overall experience.


White Dog Cafe: ❤❤❤❤

This is one of my favorite places to go in Wayne. As you might guess from the name, the decorations are entirely dog-themed, so if you’re a dog-person, this is definitely the place for you. The food is pretty delicious American fare too. Some of my personal favorites are the truffle French fries and the mushroom soup, though the menu changes regularly. Meals here can start at $30 per person, which is the main reason it doesn’t have five hearts, as the price tag can inch upward at a rate that most college students don’t appreciate. However, if you’re looking for something special, this cute little restaurant is definitely a go-to.


Choolaah: ❤❤❤❤❤

I love this place with all of my heart. Imagine Chipotle-style mix and match options, but with Indian food rather than Mexican. This restaurant is great for vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free diners; it also has options for every spice tolerance, from nonexistent to extra-spicy. If you’re not gluten-free, definitely get the garlic naan! The buttery, garlicky flatbread goes amazingly with whichever of the curries you choose. Located only ten minutes from campus and at $10-$15 per bowl (they’re big bowls too; I always share a bowl with someone), there’s almost no reason to say no. The only drawback is the ambiance– again, it’s similar to a Chipotle inside. Certainly not ugly by any means, but also not a candlelit extravaganza either.


El Limon: ❤❤❤❤

Love tacos? This place has ‘em for $2.75 each. You can get them gluten-free too, though if you’re highly allergic to gluten, make sure you explain that, because they have had one or two mishaps in the past, hence the four heart rating. They’re not too far from campus, with two locations near us, and the atmosphere is cheerful and welcoming.


Wegmans Sushi: ❤❤❤

Perfect for a group date or a girls’ night out, Wegmans has a family sized sushi pack that’s great for splitting. The family-sized pack is great for pretty much anyone in your group, as there are options for people who are vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free as well people who don’t like fish. Even the soy sauce packets are gluten-free, instead of being thickened with flour as some soy sauces are. There’s a Wegmans located near King of Prussia, and you can take the meal anywhere, from your dorm room to a (cold) picnic blanket under the stars. The three hearts? The grocery store isn’t really romantic.
