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.
