Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s that time of the year when you and your significant other have the license to go all gooey without judgment.
February 14th is weeks away, but if you really want an unforgettable date, it’s best to plan ahead. After all, don’t you want the best for you and your special someone?
Fortunately, couples in the South will never run out of date place options. In BF, Parañaque alone, there are tons of restaurants to choose from. Who says all the fun has to stay in the North? No need to take your “bae,” “babe,” or, “sweetie pie” to Makati or The Fort for date night.
Here are some of our favorite picks in BF:
Geeking Out at Puzzles: Board Game Lounge
(Price Range: Php 140 to 250; Php 100 for unlimited games)

If you’ve finally met your oppa and want some icy treats, drop by this dessert place at The Noah’s Place, Aguirre Street.
Café Seolhwa’s range of bing su is the adult answer to your snow cone cravings. Their iced treats boast of finely shaved ice combined with yummy fruits, milk and ice cream. It’s not your regular treat of halo-halo – it’s a sweet and perfect ending to your date night.

Nestled in the heart of BF, Parañaque, this Italian bistro is the perfect spot to eat pasta and make googly eyes at each other all night.
When you’re at Mama Lou’s, no meal is complete without their trademark Iced Tea – a refreshing drink that revels in fruity sweetness.
