Order was then taken, Etihad’s menu like other F product provided On-Demand Dining service.
For example, EY offers a La Carte Lunch, Lunch from the Grille, Taste of Arabia, and Kitchen Anytime Section. So in this case, various options allow a lot of mix and match to create the meal set for your suitable dining experience you wish to have.
The Menu probably explains this better than I can

Table Set-Up



Personalized Arabic Bread Basket


*Loved that bread that had Tomato filling in the middle

Appetizer Set

*The FA had a bit of a hard time understanding why I wanted 2 Appetizers, hehe

Appetizer #1, Trio of Gravad John Dory
Served with chive marinated palm hearts and mesclun salad

*They might not serve caviar but it was one tasty fish

Appetizer #2, Traditional Arabic Mezze
A selection of Middle Eastern Hot and Cold Appetisers


Extra Run of the Bread Basket


Soup, Spinach and Green Lentil Soup with Mixed Vegetables and Labneh


Was given Lemon Sorbet prior to the Main Course, the FA said it’s “to cleanse my tastebud”, sure I guess


Main Course, Grass-Fed Beef Tenderloin with Mixed Garden Vegetables and Oven-baked Fries

*I decided to go with the Grill and went for the rarest meat I could which isn’t easy on a plane. From what the FA explain, it comes frozen onto the flight but it is already semi-cooked, then is cooked via George Foreman-esque grill on the plane.
So naturally the rarest you can go, is medium rare. The Cut was good though

Dessert, Chocolate and Caramel Cheesecake with Raspberry sauce and meringue drops, along with Providore Natural Ice Cream

The Cheesecake and the Ice Cream were separate order put together as 1 dish, they had a couple flavors on the flight.

Green Tea and Pralines


Hot Towel to end the Service


Overall the service took 2 hrs 10 Minutes, not bad, but not crazy good either, and the bedding was soon done.

Across the Caucasus Mountain now


Starting to darken for the flight ahead
