Lasagna. Delicious, fresh, hot, cheesy, mouth-watering pasta goodness.
Well, this was an unexpected find in the upper regions of New York State. Not much in this small quaint town that looks like it’s plucked from middle America in the 1950’s, but Mount Morris has some nice spots such as Questa Lasagna which was a terrific food find!
After I ran a Tough Mudder last summer in upstate NY the next day we were driving up to Buffalo and Niagara Falls using the GPS, and it had us pass through this town for some odd reason. Sometimes I think the GPS is a bit bipolar and decides to go off on a tangent. I think we had the “Rain Man” GPS unit. As a storm was just starting we decided to park the car and duck into a few places to explore for a while. One shop owner suggested we check out Questa Lasagna for lunch down the street.
So glad we did! It’s a small hidden gem of a place that is family owned and produces all their pastas on site. Simply stated bright clean decor and wonderful service. The prices are just right too for what you receive here. It’s a comfortable spot good for couples or those on a date. Too bad its way too far from our place in Manhattan!
As for the food? Let’s just say that the homemade lasagna was spot-on fabulous! We opted to start with some crispy hot garlic bread, and also ordered a cheese lasagna and a beef lasagna plate. All I can say is – Wow! The lasagna here can feed an army as it’s piled high in a bowl and tastes wonderful. The chef here knows how to make a proper lasagna. Cheesy carb-laden goodness!
We had to try some dessert, and being that we were both stuffed with lasagna overdose food babies we decided to share a chocolate lasagna. The pasta was made of chocolate, and the cannoli filling was the ricotta along with fresh whipped cream and chocolate ganache to finish it off. More than enough for two to share. It’s a unique and fun dessert that was a perfect ending to a marvelous meal find. We drove up to Buffalo fat and happy. Good thing we had the GPS to guide us there as I was in a food daze for miles.
Glad the GPS had us stumble upon this spot! There are definitely some eclectic eateries that can be found within the most unlikely of places. This Regular NYC Guy needs to travel to the nether regions of NY State more often. There’s some darn good eats up here!
