You can’t exactly call him your boyfriend, but you’re spending Valentine’s Day together. That should count for something, right? This can’t be called a date either, as you’ve silently agreed that everything that you’ve done at this point has been merely “hanging out.” Whether you think it’s time to graduate from all the “no label” nonsense or not, Tomatito in BGC is the perfect place for those who are in the middle of being just friends and being a full-on couple.
Once you enter the premises, you’ll just know that this is the kind of place where things are bound to happen. The red accents, the dim lights, and the loud salsa music – Tomatito wasn’t joking when they called it a “sexy tapas bar.” The place feels alive, and if things fall through with the pseudo-boyfriend tonight, the place won’t sulk with you. They serve wine at a good price, and that’s always a plus.
If you’ve been itching to DTR or to Define The Relationship, the tapas won’t take much of your conversation time. If you don’t want to complicate things any further, you can always count on their “sexy chef” who can pick out the best tapas for the day for a fixed price. We’re sure that you’ll be needing a little bit of time to muster up the confidence to ask him, “What are we?” Don’t forget the Salmon TNT, Montaditos de Gambas, and the Filete con Airbag though. Each bite of those needs to be savored.
It’s not easy, we know. You don’t know what you guys have going on, but it makes you feel good enough to not say anything. If you need any validation, he wouldn’t ask you out on V-Day if he didn’t like you that way. This day isn’t exactly for best friends, and that’s exactly what you should bank on tonight. Don’t be shy, just order that third glass of wine.
Just think of it this way: you got yourself a hell of a meal tonight regardless of what happens. You’ll be dreaming of the filete a la parrilla every now and then after just a bite. If things go bust, you’ll still have that beautiful piece of meat in your mind. That’s better than any boy, right?
It’s now or never, girl. We’re too old for not having labels, and we’ve no time for the lame excuses like “we’re just friends” when you know deep down that you aren’t. If, of all days, you get heartbroken on Valentine’s day, don’t worry – it’s just another day in the calendar.
Tomatito Sexy Tapas Bar is located at Ground Floor, BGC Corporate Center, 11th Avenue Corner30th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, Metro Manila.
