A Meal Worthy Of The Journey

A few nights ago we went for supper. Since we are in Lethbridge, there is an abundance of restaurant choices just outside our front door, but we chose to drive aways. And by "aways" I mean 115 kilometres.

Every time I come back to Alberta there is a place I HAVE to go. I don't know if the restaurant even has a proper name, but it is in the hotel in Stavely, & they have the BEST Chinese food I've tasted, this side of the Atlantic.

Our family has been going to this restaurant for the past 8 or 9 years & we have seen the owner's children grow up. In fact, when we were there I noticed a sign on the door stating that they'd be closed one day next week to celebrate their daughter's graduation. How time flies! I remember when she would sit in the corner & colour, then shyly come & clear off the dishes as we finished them.

If you live in the area & haven't been there, you are really missing out. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Chinese food. It's got to be a testament to how good the food is if I'm willing to drive 1.5 hours for it, even though there are at least 3 Chinese restaurants in Lethbridge.


  1. Hello

    I realize this posting goes back a few years but can offer some restaurant suggestions in Charlottetown? We're planning a trip to PEI.


    1. A good pub is the Churchill Arms, but they don't take reservatins, & can get filled quickly.

      The Lucy Maud Dinning Room at the Culinary Institute is always good.

      Sirenella on Water street has really good italian food, once you get past the strage decor inside, the food is awesome! :)

      And if you're here inteh summer, go out of town to Rustico to the Fisherman's Wharf Lobster Suppers!

      We also enjoy breakfast at the PEI Preserve Company, it's about 1/2 way between Rustico & Charlottetown.

      Hope that helps!
