If you’ve been meaning to plan out your day of hearts a weekend ahead of everybody else, we feel you. Luckily, more establishments are feeling the love to get you and your S.O. or your best buddies in the Cupid mood – whether it’s to buy as a gift or a diner you could treat them to. Without further ado, here are some V-day eats (and drinks) to feast your sights and tastebuds on.

Their dreamy sushi cakes have become viral online since its inception, but frankly, that was just the beginning. Just this week, they launched their delicately deconstructed pink sushi cake. The sashimi slices sit pretty atop pink sticky rice and is adorned like roses, finished off with a drizzle of kewpie. Our sushi dreams are coming true all over again.

Their Pink Sushi Cake is available in all their branches (BGC, Quezon City, and Makati. You can also have it delivered through FoodPanda.

If you and your special someone are seriously nursing a case of the sweet tooth, Scout’s Honor’s V-Day cookies will do the trick. It’s the one time in the year where you’ll find their famous cookies in heart form. Their special confections are proof that it’s not about how big or quirky you celebrate, so long as it comes from the heart.

Scout’s Honor has branches in Makati, BGC, and Quezon City.

If you’ve tried Steak the First on your Japan trips, you’ll recall that they’re quite known for their bang-for-your-buck steaks served in a casual ambiance. The diner recently set up shop with its first branch in the country, right smack in the heart of BGC. And for Cupid season, they’re taking it up a notch with their special promo. Pair your steaks with their unlimited wines, sakes, draft beers, sangrias, high balls, and gin and tonics from February 12 to 16 starting 8 in the evening. Need we say more?

Steak the First is located at Netpark Building, 4th Avenue, BGC, Taguig City.
