Free Birthday Meals and My Todai Experience

cake.jpgRecently I celebrated my birthday. Usually, I like to celebrate at a nice restaurant, the kind with cloth napkins, a wine list, and a menu with words like coulis or pan-seared written in a pleasing font.

But this year, I said to my husband, “Let’s go to Todai!”

Todai is a seafood buffet chain with a merchandise table and a mascot. No cloth napkins or coulis—but on your birthday, your meal is free.

And I must say, it was really fun.

I stuffed myself with sushi, sashimi and crab, as well as half a dozen other things. I had spider hand rolls, which you need to request at the sushi counter, and they were stuffed with crab and avocado and the nori was crispy. I had cheesecake and a root beer float. My gluttonous side was very happy, and my frugal side even happier.

You can find other eateries that offer birthday deals in your area by going to this website:

If anyone else knows of a good deal, please share!

    Only problem with the free meal offer is that you still have to pay for the others in your party. We did this once and realized we spent more money at Todai even with the free meal than we would have at another place nicer than Todai.
