Getting older is always bittersweet. A year older is a year wiser, but think all of the money you have to spend to buy food for your friends! Oh, the blasphemy. So we browsed the internet, picked up the phone, asked some friends, and racked our brains for previous experiences regarding free birthday meals in Jakarta.
Here you are, places where you can get free meals on your birthday. May the list befriends you and your wallet through tough times.
1. Sushi Tei
This is probably not a news for sushi enthusiasts, but yes, Sushi Tei will give you 8 pieces of Crispy Roll that they call the Sushi Cake. Valid one week before and after your birthday at all Jabodetabek outlets, dine-in only, no minimum purchase. Simply show your ID card and enjoy the Sushi Cake!
2. Holycow! Steakhouse by Chef Afit
Nothing says happy birthday like a free juicy plate of steak, and Holycow! certainly understands that. You can get any steak for free (unless it’s on their “Premium Selection”), as long as you’re willing to wear a cute birthday headband—a small price to pay for free steak. Valid only on your birthday.
Well, at Starbucks, you don’t technically get a free birthday meal. You’ll get a free grande-sized beverage instead. Here’s the kicker: you have to have a registered Starbucks card and purchase something from the pastry case. But if Starbucks is indeed your third place between home and office, we think you’ll still be very happy with this offer. Valid only on your birthday.
4. The Republic of Burger
If burgers are your thing, you’re gonna love this one! Come to The Republic of Burger on your birthday and show your ID card to get a free Mac & Cheese Monster burger, worth IDR 69K. You need to buy another item to get this promotion, although there is no minimum purchase. Valid only at their outlet in Bintaro.
This chic bistro in Gandaria City and Kota Kasablanka is going to give you what everyone should have on their birthday: free Munchies Choco Eruption, complete with candles. Fans of chocolate lava cake would be delighted with this offer. Valid one week before and after your birthday.
6. Pepper Lunch
Pepper Lunch has numerous outlets all across Jakarta, so probably this is one of the deals that is easier to find. You can get free Red Velvet Cake only on the date of your birthday at all Pepper Lunch outlets.
Sadly you can’t get TGIF’s famous Tex Mex dishes or steak for free on your birthday, but at least you can get some brownies on the house! Valid at all TGIF outlets only on your birthday.
