As much as I love to cook, I also love eating food that I didn’t have to cook, in the comfort of my own home. I love the food at Society Fair, but a Date Night Bag gives you a chance to try a wider range of food than they serve in the wine bar or the cafe but the same quality. Of course you can order carry out, but for some reason this is different. It seems higher quality. So for a Date Night Bag, you place your order and pay online basically any time before Friday, pick up the bag up sometime Friday, and take it home and enjoy.
This bag included Curry chicken, basmati rice, Indian Chickpea salad, naan, different chutneys/spreads, coconut chai rice pudding, and a bottle of riesling.
All we had to do was heat up the chicken, rice, and naan, plate it up, pour the wine, and enjoy. It took all of 5 minutes to get from the front door to sitting down eating a fantastic meal. Well, maybe a little longer, I had to take pictures!
The naan was some of the fluffiest and softest I’ve ever had and the wine pairing was perfect for the flavor profile of the meal. The curry was just spicy enough. The chickpea salad was great and I’d love to make it myself. I’m thinking it would be a good dish to take a to cookout. The rice pudding was good too, but the chai spices were just a touch strong. There was an anise flavor that was a bit much. But don’t get me wrong, we still ate every bite of it. The whole meal was plenty for both of us and we had one serving of everything but the naan left over.
- How often I order a bag: Every couple of months. It’s perfect when we need a quiet night in but still want really tasty restaurant-quality food.
- My favorite thing about it: The fact that I just have to pick it up, wine and all. At $49, it’s cheaper than going to any restaurant and ordering two entrees, dessert, and a bottle of wine.
- Bags I want to try: Like ScratchDC, I like trying things I wouldn’t cook for myself. A little bit more adventurous meals.
- Why you should try it: Because it’s delicious. And all you have to do is go pick it up. They even do the wine pairing for you. You can also pass it off like you cooked a fancy meal, if you need/want to.
