Created by Thomas and Ruth Roy of wellcat.com in order to help people let go of restrictive diet trends and enjoy life, the 'holiday' which falls on 11 May each year is the one day when everyone is encouraged to stop the calorie counting and start on the comfort food. Here are five places where you can do just that.

• House of Tiago, 22 Tombland

House of Tiago offers a traditional Brazilian Rodizio dining experience, whereby waiters bring skewers of various meats, including steak, gammon and chicken, round to each table several times throughout the meal for customers to sample. The meats are then accompanied by an all-you-can-eat cold buffet and complimentary fries. The restaurant also caters for those following a vegetarian or pescatarian diet, boasting a menu which contains tasty items such as grilled halloumi, flame grilled vegetables, king prawns and salmon.

• COSMO Authentic World Kitchen, 25 London Street

Over 150 dishes are served in COSMO, with everything imaginable on offer from sushi to a full roast dinner - if you fancy it, there's a very good chance they've got it. The idea behind the restaurant is to allow customers to sample different flavours from all over the world, with dishes from places such as India, Italy, Asia, America, Greece and France. While you're bound to want to try everything and then some, make sure to leave room for dessert once the main event is over. Two words: chocolate fountain.
