Do You Really Need to Eat at a Restaurant on Valentines Day?

By That's Shanghai, February 5, 2018

Valentine’s Day is undoubtedly considered the busiest day of the year for most restaurants. Just about every table is occupied by a couple – making a scene that looks more like a speed dating event than a romantic and intimate experience. 


This year, step away from the crowd, forgo the hassle of booking a restaurant, and let Via Stelle plan a 3-course restaurant-quality meal at yours with two bottles of wine for under RMB500. Intrigued?

How it Works


Via Stelle is a premium meal delivery platform that partners with world class chefs and restaurants, creating special dishes that are brought to your door in 45 minutes to 1 hour, assembled and reheated by you in as little as five minutes. (See how our road test of the Via Stelle experience went here)


Valentine’s Day Specials

This V-day, Via Stelle is offering two sumptuous sets that will kick start a night of romance. Because they’re specially designed to go from box to plate in just minutes’ time, you’ll have extra head space to focus on setting the mood. Some rose petals, candles and a sultry playlist perhaps? 

Each set includes a starter, main, dessert and a bottle of wine. Add on additional dishes from the Via Stelle menu (priced from RMB48). 

Alternatively, order both the Valentine's Day Specials, and have you and your significant other a three-course meal with two delicious bottles of wine for RMB499. 

Set 1: I’m Yours (RMB281)


Prep time: 7 mins

This indulgent set starts with a creamy mushroom soup infused with a hint of espresso, a recipe designed by the 1 Michelin Star restaurant AMOUR in Tokyo. For mains, enjoy a 200g grilled beef tenderloin steak with truffled potatoes from acclaimed Boston restaurant L’Espalier. Finish off with a sweet note from AMOUR: chocolate mousse with pear.  The set also includes a bottle of Bicycle 2015 Tempranillo red wine. 

Set 2: You’re Mine (RMB218)

Prep time: 5 mins


A set that contrasts flavors and textures, start off with a punchy and fresh organic spinach salad, adorned with black olives and basil peso dressing, a recipe from San Franciscan 1 Michelin Star restaurant Lord Stanley. 

For your main, enjoy their indulgent seared pork belly with apple purée. Lastly, a delicious chocolate mousse with pear from AMOUR. 


With this set, you’ll be treated to a bottle of Inycon 2015 Pinot Grigio white wine.
