We’d be trippin’ if we claimed we weren’t bothered that Valentine’s Day falls on a workweek. In times like these, scoring a hearty yet romantic fix can be challenging during the limited hours you have after clocking out. Let’s face it: Not all the favourite eateries that you and your boo love are open till late.
To combat this V-Day conundrum, we sought out the best late-night spots that ring true of a double-edged sword. On said list, you’ll find the land of fusion and western delights, mouthwatering desserts, and decadent juicy burgers.
And lest you forget, you’ll need to make a reservation!
