The Daily Meal presents nine airport restaurants, like Globe@YVR that give travelers a sample of the city’s culinary creations that lie beyond the airport.

Airport restaurants haven’t traditionally been at the top of globe-trotting gourmands' lists of delicious destinations. However, an increasing number of restaurants located within the terminals are becoming dining destinations.

Increasingly, restaurants like Plane Food at London’s Heathrow Airport and Pink’s at Los Angeles International Airport are providing portable eats and sit-down meals that are emblematic of the destination’s culinary traditions.

For travelers in transit or without time to experience a region’s cuisine, these nine kitchens provide a taste of hometown treats steps from the tarmac. From traditional Singaporean dumplings at Kim Choo’s Nonya Kitchen at Singapore Changi Airport and poffertjes (Dutch pancakes) at Dutch Kitchen at Schiphol International Airport, The Daily Meal presents nine airport restaurants that give travelers a sample of the city’s culinary creations that lie beyond the airport — many of which may even be worth missing your flight for.
