Whistle Stop – High River, Alberta

Nothing excites me more than small town cafes and diners and when I heard of Whistle Stop Diner as a little train dining cart restaurant, I knew I needed to make it a first stop! This adorable dining cart was so much fun, and the staff and food was phenomenal!

I found on their special menu their Cinnamon Bun Pancake which I knew I needed to have the moment I read it on the board. It was exceptional as it’s one of the things I love most. It was a very amazing treat.

I also like a great steak so we ordered a Steak and Egg special and there’s something so fun about steak and eggs. There’s absolutely nothing wrong steak and eggs, especially from Whistle Stop diner!

This was a fabulous dining experience, the food was fantastic, the experience was like nothing we’ve tried so far!

Misato Sushi & Grill – Calgary, Alberta

We had a delightful little sushi lunch at a place not far from my place, called Misato and this little place is truly little! There’s ample of parking, and the owners were very friendly!

We ordered a little sushi boat which had an assortment of sushi. The selection was delicious and the sushi was fresh.

They had a fun lunch special with a Bento Box and that was filled with a fun selection of a typical assortment. I has a bento box with teriyaki chicken, sashimi and tempura!

With the bento box, it came with a little bowl of miso soup

Overall, it’s a great little spot to go for lunch. It’s quiet and the food’s good! It’s a decent place!

Noodle Exchange – Las Vegas, Nevada

This is now the most random Las Vegas trip. Our main purpose of the 3 days here was for their airshow as I love airplanes and airshows. Our friends thought it would be fun to be as Asian as possible so Noodle Exchange was definitely not on my radar to go try, we did anyway! This little place was inside the Gold Coast Hotel that’s off the strip. We had rented a car so we were able to get around but I hear there’s buses that go here.

As we were Chinese’ing it up (I know!!) a home meal you’d rarely find in restaurants really interested me. I don’t know why a lot of our dishes sounds terrible translated, but they seriously taste fine!! This one is Minced Beef on Rice which is a very simple dish not even worth the price but it’s easy to eat!

The other dish we had is a noodle dish, and we had their Beef Shank Noodle Soup that was braised beef shank that was full of flavour and it was tender. It had some spice to it and it was delicious.

As I’m here reflecting a bit on the trip, it was quite a different one. It’s really nice that food brings people together and we get to make new memories while sharing past ones. Some friends are meant to keep and some are meant to suddenly exit without much said.
