Restaurants in Western Sydney: Tips when eating alone

There’s nothing wrong with eating out alone. Actually, everyone should try eating out alone themselves. It’s quite an experience to book a reservation in a restaurant, order the food that you think will take you to a different level of food cuisine and just eating what you think is the best for you. If you are about to embark in this culinary adventure, remember the following tips that can help you enjoy this particular restaurant experience.

Choose the restaurant wisely

It is not vain or bad to choose the restaurant that you are going to especially if you are a woman. Skip dingy and dark places and pick brighter restaurants/ cafes/ pubs in locations where there are plenty of people around and where there are drunk people who might disrupt your peace. This may be a tad bit too cautionary but the profile of patrons that visit a place can make a great difference to whether you will be left alone or have wandering eyes around you. Choose open and classy Restaurants in Western Sydney who have a very intimate yet unrowdy ambiance.

Pick the type of meal that you are going at

Decide which meal will be your first solo dining excursion. If you are still a bit worried about dining alone, then try coffee first. You can go to a local café and bring our favourite book to keep yourself occupied. If you already got the hang of it then go to lunch. If you’re worried about sitting alone in a busy restaurant starting with lunch might be a good idea since most people will be in their offices or schools during this time and dinner is usually when the people go out to dine. You’ll be able to avoid the dinner crowds, not to mention the long wait and wandering stares of other diners who can’t mind their own business. Even if lunch is a bit busy for your taste, you can find times in the day where the dining rush dies down altogether like around 3PM in the afternoon.  Depending on where in the world you are, you might have luck during the brunch hours or the afternoon foodie time.

Know the menu

Going back to the first tip, after you do your research on where you should dine alone, start learning about the restaurant’s menu so that you would know what you will get. You can also create a shortlist of three things that you want to eat right before you enter the restaurant if you have no idea about what they are going to offer. Not only will it make your first 10 minutes in the restaurant less stressful, it avoids the problem of panic ordering which can happen when you eat alone. And, the bonus is that if you eat something delicious, you’re much more likely to want to return for another adventure eating out alone. This is an experience where you can truly taste the good food and enjoy it on your own. If you are not comfortable yet with eating alone, then you should order something that’s right around your comfort zone. Pizza and pastas are something that’s familiar and stress free and will definitely not add any trouble to your overall experience.

Enjoy and people watch


Aside from eating incredible food, another activity that you can do when dining alone is to people watch. It's incredible how little attention we pay to people around us, always in a hurry that we are. You may find it interesting to people watch, enjoy a spectrum of scenes as they unfold in front of you. And also, your mind will be free to think about anything while eat a good meal. That’s an experience right there.
