(MSP) Money's tight. Any cheap date suggs?
i'm feeling very broke, but still love food and dining out. anyone have any great restaurant suggestions that are inexpensive?
thanks in advance.
Vietnamese food. A banh mi sandwich and lemonade at Pho Tau Bay or Jasmine Deli will run about $5 or $6. And you can't beat the atmosphere for romance (I'm serious, but that's just me).
For fancy Vietnamese food, head to St. Paul's Ngon Restaurant - it's more like $15-$30 per person (depending on what you order and whether you drink wine), but it's fabulous. And even normal people would find the place romantic - the decor is lovely.
Bryant Lake Bowl has date night, dinner and bowling (including wine) which is a great deal.
Do an early date and hit up a great happy hour. Saji-ya, Azia, Pop!!, Senor Wong's all have great deals on food and drinks....and if the date is going well you can retire early :)
Broder's has a great date special, from Sunday through Thursday, after 8 pm. For $26, you get 1/2 bottle of house wine, bread, olives, 2 salads and choice of 2 pasta dishes. The pastas aren't their fanciest, but there's about 5 to choose from. Off the top of my head, I think the choices were: bolognese, mariana, puttanesca, carbonara, and al fredo. You can also upgrade the pastas with $2 sausage, $3 chicken, and $5 shrimp. We went last week and were really pleased with the quality of the food.

What sort of budget are we talking about? For example, "I'd prefer to spend no more than ____, including tip." And are you focused on a certain geographical area?
