The best places in HK to grab takeout when alone on Valentine’s Day

If the word ‘date’ isn’t in your to-do list this month, we’ve got you covered.

Let’s be real for a moment: we all have a love hate relationship with Valentine’s day. When you’re single it’s awful and when you’re in a relationship you’re torn between pretending to find it cringey but secretly thinking that doing all the typical couple stuff is cute and genuinely hating it for the over-commercialized, capitalistic holiday it is. Plus, thanks to the global pandemic and lockdowns ruining any chances of meeting new potential love interests since the last Valentine’s day, you’re pretty much guaranteed to still be single.

So…we’re guessing you’ve got no plans for Valentine’s day other than to order takeaway, maybe watch some rom-coms and wonder what it’ll be like to love someone like that one day. To make matters worse, Valentine’s day is on a weekend, so you’ll have plenty of time to do absolutely nothing. Well, we’ve got you covered on one end: the takeaway. You’ll have to find the partner on your own (best of luck)!

1. Chullschick

For something a little out of the ordinary, try Chullschick, a Peruvian-French fusion extravaganza and the only restaurant in Hong Kong to receive recognition from Promperu, Peru’s official tourism board. If that doesn’t convince you that you’re in for an authentic treat, I don’t know what will! What’s better is if you click the Deliveroo link from their webpage, you’ll get HKD$100 credit to spend at Chullschick. We’ve helpfully included the link for you below! There’s even more: several dishes are currently 20% off!

2. Check in Taipei

For a delicious Taiwanese feast, look no further than Check In Taipei, a small Taiwanese restaurant operating out of Central since 2014. Not only are their beef noodles to die for, but their braised pork on rice is excellent. Both dishes are great for warming your soul up from the inside! Right now there’s a 10% discount if you spend more than HKD$90 if you order through Foodpanda, or 20% off the entire menu if you spend more than HKD$150 through Deliveroo!

5. Ruam

Ruam, Thai for ‘to gather’, is a vibrant-casual Thai eatery that might seem ironic to order from when considering the circumstances, what with being alone on Valentine’s day to it not actually being wise to gather in large groups right now. Still, you can’t beat their delivery menu, with a wide range of delicious delicacies that can satisfy every craving you have.
