There is nothing more uncomfortable for a woman than eating in front of her date for the first time. I can’t count how many times my girlfriends have told me that they ordered a salad at a popular restaurant, then stopped by a burger joint after the date.
Affinitas has cracked down the most popular cuisines and created a first-date friendly menu to save you from food deprivation.
He’s taking you to an Italian restaurant! Realistically your first date isn’t going to turn into a parody of Lady and the Tramp so opt for a more romantic and clean version. A great substitute for pasta that isn’t going to flick back in your face and leave a great big red stain on that new white dress is Gnocchi- a potato based meal and great for those wheat and gluten haters.
A very sophisticated dish that will fill you up with all the right things without making you bloated, greasy or uncomfortable. If you’re in a Japanese restaurant, ordering sushi is great! Sharing a plate of sushi is a very sociable way of eating and great to stop those cravings for food on your way home.
If he’s taking you to a Chinese restaurant be sure to not order too many of those deep fried finger foods! A chicken or fish stir fry is a great way to stay healthy, full and stain free. Plus, you can show off your chopstick skills!
Opting for a chilli, tacos or quesadilla means you can eat with your knife and fork and avoid messy finger food that will leave a red sauce around your face and crumbs all over your lap. You can even get a good margarita to subdue those first date nerves. Be careful of beans, you don’t want to be getting gassy on your first date!
