    For me there is only one time - the soup! [​IMG]

    The rest, I don't really bother too much with. [​IMG]

    Guiness and Harp for me please - beer is a food - no? Agree that the soup is good too - with a good Guiness or Harp! :)

    Since most of my MLL visits are in the early AM, the instant Mocchachino (YYZ). It ain't Starbucks, but it fills a need.

    Not really a fan of the chips - just not enough oomph for me somehow! [​IMG]

    Don't mind the soup.
    Do the candies count? :p
    How about Clamato?

    Clamato only counts if in a Caesar (the drink not the salad!)

    Oh, the temptations! I keep thinking of my diet, and worriting that the veggie chips are too greasy, and the Clamato is too high in sodium. Most of the time, I content myself with a plate of celery and carrots, and a cup of tea.

    On quite another note altogether, I started keeping track of the frequency with which I observed chicken soup of some sort or another in the MLL. Record run was eight times in a row (although to be fair that observation was taken over a span of three weeks' very frequent crossborder travel).

    Now, on another topic altogether, my favourite domestic/transborder MLL in terms of catering is far and away the Vancouver domestic lounge (the one with the high rock walls and waterfall outside its door). Vegetables are constantly resupplied there, which as far as my tummy is concerned is a grand thing.

    (And yes, I shall also admit to missing the long-lost 'cheese domes'...)

    Dinner time : The Salad bar when there are lots of tomatoes still left.
    I actually eat in the MLL so I don't have to eat on the plane.
    Eating in the MLL allows me to see what I am getting before hand.

    Also, if I have already eaten in the lounge I can board my plane and go right to sleep.

    * the hot pasta choice is nice, but I would prefer something a bit less fattening [​IMG]
    * I'd like to see some sort of protein offered to go with my salad. Hard boiled eggs?

    Breakfast time: When in a Canadian MLL, nothing.
    However, I do love the London Lounge for morning departures.

    Anybody else find the breakfast offerings, poor?

    I usually stay away from the coffee so that I can get the full 90 minutes of sleep on the 6:40 AM YYZ-EWR! :)

    Not bad - healthy indeed - but somehow not satisfying.

    Defintely the viva chips. I started buying them in the grocery store because of the lounge.

    Digressing a little i'd like to se the MLLs get those biscottis that the Porter lounge has at YTZ.

    I agree that it is healthy and actually quite enjoy the salad. It's a good topping for the lettuce salad.

    What is your favourite MLL for food offerings?
    Mine is the London UK lounge.

    * Also love all the different newspapers they carry.

    I buy them because York Region Transit does such a good job of promoting them :p:
