MCO-DEN (F) - Dinner

Had the lentil chili with polenta cakes. As far as domestic airline food goes, it was spectacular (one of the best domestic F meals I can remember). Something I'd not just eat on the ground, but enjoy on the ground, so was a real treat onboard. Even passes muster to make upper echelon of meals I've had on international F on any carrier (but not quite as superlative in this context, but still quite good).

Now, lentils do lend themselves well to being airline/pre-prepped/par-booked and oven finished on-board, so that is partially it (e.g. they nailed the texture, but shouldn't be hard with a lentil dish), but the seasoning and flavors were robust, layered, and well chosen.

Also, relatively healthy, and if you pass on the polenta, very, very healthy.

Polenta was a bit gel-like and not perfect, but definitely passable and the lentil quality carried it, esp if you mixed the lentil, you didn't notice the short comings of the polenta texture/prep.
