Business meeting with a former coach for the Australian National Team and his wife. They picked Italian food, one of the restaurants in the mall. I went with a simple soup and sandwich selection (ordered separately).

From  the description, I thought it would be more like Portuguese Bean Soup. In my opinion, not enough pasta or beans in this version.

I’m not familiar with eggplant parmigiana (The Cat is better acquainted with it), Not much eggplant taste, more like a grilled cheese sandwich. My opinion, I prefer spicy eggplant, Chinese-style.

The accompanying marinara sauce was pretty good though.

The Cat ordered a crusted monchong salad.

It was just ok. I ended up eating the cubes of cheese on the bottom right of the picture. Even with lactose pills, I was a little (okay, more than a little) gassy. At least it was only gas. Sorry way too much info.

The high point was meeting the coach and his wife. Very inspirational. Kind of like meeting Yoda, very wise but talks funny. 🙂

I think next time we meet I’m going to suggest Chinese food. Dim sum in particular. With spicy eggplant. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
