“What’s the deal with airline food?” Sorry – that cliché no longer applies – as long as you decide to dine within the airport, rather than on the plane itself. As air travel becomes more and more popular for business and leisure travelers alike, the dining offering of major airports have evolved from fast food to some of the best food in town. Pre-flight fare has taken on a life of it’s own.
Check your bags, follow your stomach and keep an eye for the key words: “handcrafted,” “locally sourced,” “modern,” “craft.” It’s at these signposts that you’ll find a surplus of takes on all types of cuisine. Carnitas, cauliflower, clam chowder—it’s a veritable cornucopia. Airport food is now nearly as varied and eye-opening as travel itself.
Don’t settle for stale pizza or fast-food burgers – you can still enjoy some great fare while waiting for your flight or after landing, ranging from authentic Mexican to Kobe beef. Our infographic provides the full rundown.
