Eating at a restaurant on a moving train has long been one of my bucket list items. I have always wanted to do that and was so excited that my dream was going to come true. Being that our train ride was about eight hours and we would be on it for two meals we decided to start with the quick service restaurant and just eat lunch in our seats. That way we would have dinner to look forward to. Jason went down to the food car. (That’s not Jason. ha ha.) I told him to just surprise me–always a little dangerous, but adventurous anyway. This is just an order and go restaurant.
I didn’t realize until later that there was actually a place to sit there too if we hadn’t wanted to take our food up to the top where the view was much better in the dome car. This restaurant was available to anyone on the train.
Jason brought back a breakfast burrito that was served cold and a plate of nachos. The cold burrito did not sound good at all, so I took the nachos, but suggested we split the food. So after we each ate half we switched.
Oh. My. Goodness. This has to be the best breakfast burrito I have ever had. If ever you ride the train make sure you get one. The Reindeer Sausage in it is amazing. I would have liked to take some home. Jason said the guy in line ordered some and Jason took the last one. Get’em quick!
When we were ready for supper we went down to the restaurant car that was only available to the GoldStar passengers.
I was so excited. I mean, HOW romantic!
I have to laugh at this photo. Either Jason gained a LOT of weight on that cruise or maybe he was stashing all the extra food in his jacket. Photos can be so funny sometimes.
Jason ordered a fish platter. Me, well, after a week on a cruise with no chips I was dying for some potato chips. I ordered a sandwich platter and ate every bite. Jason kept eyeing my chips and finally asked me for some. “No way, I want them all.” So I guess it wasn’t THAT romantic. Ha ha.
We had a great time chatting with our waiter and dining as we looked out at the beautiful scenery. Jason even saw a moose as we ate. It was a lovely time that I will cherish.
