Hubby has enjoyed 2 free meals for his Birthday this year! Free is always a good thing 🙂 A couple of years ago or so, we signed up for the Birthday Club at Red Robin and sure enough for your Birthday they send an email that is good for a free Gourmet Burger. The offer is good for 7 days before and after your birthday. I Believe this will be the 5th year for my Birthday and maybe the third for hubby’s. So the Friday before his Birthday we went to our local Red Robin in Westminster and cashed in the email for his Salmon Burger! Tonight hubby had a free meal at Benihana. Benihana has an even better deal. At the first of March they sent an email for a free meal up to $30. The offer is good for the entire month.
Hubby and I headed over the Benihana tonight to enjoy his free meal. He ordered the Salmon but was excited to see that there were two new vegetarian options that had been added to their menu. One was Asparagus with Tofu and other veggies. The other was a Tofu Steak. Not really my cup of tea but at least he will have something new to try when we go eat there for my Birthday next month 🙂
If you have never had the Salmon at Benihana or seen how it is cooked, it is an experience. It is always fun to watch the others around the table try to figure out what it is. For those of you old enough to remember Jiffy Pop Popcorn, it is pretty much cooked like the popcorn. The salmon and some veggies are placed on tin foil then covered in plastic wrap. As it cooks the plastic wrap expands. Fortunately I had my trusty camera with me and took some photos to share with you.
If you haven’t been to Benihana the chef puts on quiet a show.
Including throwing knives, shrimp (and other food), and building volcanos with onions! Our Chef tonight was very good. The food was good and he handled having a table of adults very well.
For hubby’s birthday, he also received a special food treat and the staff sang Happy Birthday in English and Japanese! Of course he ate most of my chocolate ice cream as well!
Birthday week is now officially over!
