East Side Mario's, Mississauga, ON

I conducted one-on-ones for a client in Mississauga today and had lunch at East Side Mario's (Rodeo/Mavis).

Because of the heat (32C ... 42C with the humidity), they had the blinds pulled down to keep the restaurant cooler.

I ordered Mario's 16 Layer Lasagna.

 It came with soup or salad and bread.  I got Italian Wedding Soup.

The soup was okay.  There were five small meatballs and a little bit of noodles in a bland broth ... I've had it heartier at other East Side Mario's.  I just ate the meatballs.  The bread was warm and delicious.

Here's my lasagna ... it was a lot sloppier than in the picture in the menu.  This is before I even started eating it.

About halfway through ... are there 16 layers?

It was good, though.  The sauce had burger and sausage in it and was slightly peppery.  A little more melted cheese on top would have been nice.

Lystra was my server and she took good care of me.  When she introduced herself when I sat down, I told her my name.  She used it every time she popped by to check on me.
