For busy married couples with children, getting some precious alone time may be a rare occurrence. However, it's important for you to make the effort to escape from the daily grind and help preserve the fire and romance in your relationship. A romantic evening meal at a restaurant is a wonderful way to reconnect.
To spice things up, you should skip your usual haunt and try a cuisine with a bit more zing. Here are two exotic restaurant options which help the keep the fire in your marriage burning.
1. An Indian feast
Indian restaurants are renowned for their fiery curries, their tantalising array of side dishes, and their use of aromatic spices. Be sure to treat yourself to some zesty lime pickle with poppadoms, some pillow-like samosas, and a velvety curry or two. Their meals are also perfectly designed to share, which will help to create a more intimate dining experience.
The decor of Indian restaurant will also help to creative an amorous mood. The rich, vibrant colours of the soft furnishings and the low, ambient lighting coupled with the flavours and aromas of the food will help to create a sensory experience instead of simply a meal.
2. A Thai banquet
Another wonderful dining experience is a meal at a traditional Thai restaurant. Like Indian cuisine, Thai food is best known for its fragrant curries and the tasty morsels that are served as entrées. Many Thai restaurants offer a set banquet menu for two which is a fantastic way to sample a wide variety of food and possibly expand your culinary horizons.
Thai restaurants are generally small restaurants and the gentle Thai music along with the delicate floral patterns and motifs on the soft furnishings create a serene and cosy vibe for your romantic night out. Many Thai restaurants also have more private booths or sunken dining spaces which make you and your spouse feel as though you're the only two people in the world.
Having a special evening out together is a wonderful shared experience and this is even truer when you treat yourself to an out-of-the-ordinary dining experience, like Indian or Thai cuisine.
If you can't get a babysitter, then it's lucky that most Indian and Thai restaurants will serve your meals to take away. You can still have your intimate meal together once the children are in bed and no one will have to do the dishes afterward.
