Jillian's Dirty Thirty

Jillian is one of my dearest friends from high school and she turned 30 last week, so we met her and some friends for dinner last night to celebrate at one of her favorite restaurants, Mekong Village.

Mekong Village is an authentic Vietnamese restaurant on Aurora, and we've eaten here with Jill and Robert several times... it's delicious! It's a little out of the way, but if you're ever in the area you should definitely stop in. The staff is super friendly and the food is absolutely delicious! It's also not very expensive and you'll be totally entertained by the funky decor and extremely random background music.

It was the perfect place to celebrate Jillian's Dirty Thirty. Please take a moment to admire her amazing birthday headband... adorable.

I just had to throw in a photo of Mekong's eclectic decor...
Purple walls, red and pink napkins, butterflies and Christmas lights... they have it all.

Yummy, yummy, yummy.
We started with Eggrolls, but they were pretty greasy, so I wished we would have gone with our usual Spring Rolls, which are amazing. I got Rare Beef Noodle Soup because I had been craving pho, and Stew got Pad Thai with chicken because it's the only thing he ever orders. Four out of five stars was almost spicy enough for him.

Our waitress gave Jillian a birthday balloon,
which I believe was re purposed from Valentine's Day, but it's the thought that counts.

This is a terrible camera phone photo, but it's all I was able to get.

The rest of the group was headed to Hula Hula in Queen Anne for drinks and karaoke, but since Stew had to work the next day and I was exhausted from crutching around all day we went home like an old married couple. A rockin' Saturday night. Now that Jill is 30 she, too, can look forward to this exciting lifestyle.

Happy Birthday Jillian, we love you!
