How to: Themed Dinner Nights

Looking to mix up your weekly meals or plan a special date night? Picking a themed evening for dinner can make any meal a lot more fun and exciting, especially if you are making something you wouldn’t normally have. There are all kinds of different options for a themed dinner night – read on for a few interesting ideas.

Mexican Fiesta

Of course, one of the most popular themes is a Mexican Fiesta. Mexico has all kinds of amazing dishes, snacks, and drinks to enjoy packed full of colour, flavour and spice, so a Mexican-themed evening is always a good choice. This could include making classic fajitas or tacos with a side dish of nachos along with plenty of dips.

There are also desserts to try, including churros. You can then make yourself a homemade margarita or a raspberry hibiscus tea if you want a non- alcoholic drink. To create the right atmosphere, don’t forget to decorate the table and play a few games!

Asian Street Food

Asian street food is hugely popular right now and a great option for a themed dinner night, as there is so much to choose from. With so much variety, it can be hard to decide, so you might want to consider three-course meal dishes from different countries. This could include starting with some Japanese edamame or Chinese spring rolls before moving on to mains, where you could have a Thai green curry or Korean Bibimbap. To finish, try coconut sticky rice with mango or mochi ice cream. For drinks, there are many refreshing Asian cocktails and/or finish with a tasty matcha tea.

BBQ Bash

If the weather permits, it is hard to go wrong with a BBQ bash. There is something special about firing up the BBQ during an English summer, perhaps because it is such a rare opportunity! One of the best things about a BBQ is the fact that you can make enough food to enjoy for the rest of the week, and there are lots of recipes online. You will also want to make sure you stock up on cold beer, wine, and soft drinks.

Vegetarian Night

These days, many people are vegetarians or looking to eat less meat. This should be embraced because a vegetarian diet is cheaper, better for the environment, and healthier. A veggie night is a great way to explore the many different options for a meat-free meal across all cuisines. If you need inspiration, it is never hard to find new vegetarian recipes online for all abilities.

This post should give you a few ideas for themed dinner nights that will make any evening a lot more fun and interesting. These could add some variety to your weekday meals or be a date night that gives you a chance to impress your date.
