Late birthday

On Thursday night I hobbled out to dinner to celebrate my birthday (again, with different people, because I'm so popular). My actual birthday was on Sunday but my knee still felt a bit wobbly to I decided to give it a bit of extra rest and just stayed home all day (my parents got me a really good chocolate mousse cake though so it was okay). So I'm 20 (note: twenteen) now... it still sounds like a really big number.


We went to Flying Fajita Sistas, a Mexican restaurant in Glebe.


It's got cool decor.


Waka and Deb.


Vidya and I.


As we soon discovered, the sangria is really strong...


I got the nachos (of course) with pulled pork. Let me give you a tip, if you decide to go there: GET PULLED PORK EVERYTHING.


We also shared tacos with pulled pork. I'm still thinking about the pulled pork.


Afterwards we headed down the street for dessert at San Churro. We got this fondue dipping platter.


I also tried the chilli hot chocolate. I didn't really like the taste of the spices, it was odd! The drink was super thick, and I bit too much for me after all I'd eaten that evening. I think a mug of plain or mint chocolate would be nice if you dropped in on a cold day (with an emptier stomach).

Thanks for all the sympathy in the last post. I can more or less put my weight on my knee while walking now, and I'm just using one crutch. I still feel a bit of pain on movement, which I'm a bit worried about since it's been more than a week. I can feel it improving every day though, so hopefully it resolves soonish.

  2. Everything looks absolutely delicious! I've never had chili hot chocolate, the combo sounds quite odd but I kind of want to try it... Hope your knee gets better soon! :)

  3. The churros look amazing. They were the one thing that I didn't eat before I landed myself in a gluten free diet, I've been dying to try them out, but I guess I'll never know what they taste like. Happy belated birthday again, twenty/twenteen will sound old until you aren't twenty anymore! I hope your knee gets better soon. Take care.

  14. Pulled pork is delicious, I'm drooling at the sight of all the food. Always a wise choice with nachos also!

    Oh man sorry to hear about your leg, not good at all. Put on a few of your favourite dvds and have a good rest. Hope it heals soon.

    Oh I agree with your comment too, at home I've worn the smock without the belt for full optimized comfort haha!

  23. oh jane you'll recover soon! as i'm sure how being twenteen would be a merry and wonderful year for you!

    speaking of which im quite a sucker for pull pork also... pull chicken, pull lamb. my theory is whatever that's pull must be good since they have to be really tender to be pulled. right?! oh except pull chicken breast. that's one i've tried...haha

    and happy belated! wished i could virtually cook you something but looks like internet has its limits huh?! but if you're ever in singapore, let me know!!

    hope you're feeling better!

  30. glad to hear your knee/leg is getting better, even if it is slowly. that's a shame your dessert hot chocolate wasn't great, i'm really not a fan of chilli but people keep saying chilli chocolate is good but i just can't get my head around why it would be! haha. anyway, happy birthday love! trust me 20 isn't that old, i'm turning 25 later this year :(

  31. Happy belated 20th birthday! Looks like you had a lot of fun and the food looks delicious, especially the pulled pork and nachos. And the churros too! It's a shame about the hot chocolate though, I'm not really a fan of chilli chocolate either, even though some people rave about it!

    Glad to hear that your knee is better! :-)
