Every year, birthdays give us that one free pass to eat (or drink) whatever we want and not feel bad about it. But the unlimited selection of food isn’t the only factor that makes birthday treats so guilt-free. There are some restaurants that make it easy on the pocket, too! We’ve rounded up 10 places around the Metro that give you one more reason to look forward to your special day.
Head over to Ippudo with three of your hungriest friends (and your valid I.D.) to get a free bowl of ramen. You can choose among Shiromaru, Akamaru, and Karaka-men while your friends can order any basic, special, or LE ramen. Or maybe they’d want to take a pick from the teppan rice category between Beef Ishiyaki and Unagi rice. The best part? There's no limit to how many times you can go back for your freebie within your birthday month.

It's inevitable that you'd get more attention than usual on your birthday, like when the sweet staff and crew gather around and serenade you with a Happy Birthday song at Mamou. But nothing says home kitchen like a warm, red velvet cupcake after a full, satisfying meal.
