It’s not surprising that Anthony Bourdain would have quite the expert opinion on which airport serves the best food, given the many layovers he’s had in shows like The Layover.
And while the renowned food and travel host has sworn off on airplane food, he gamely shared with the New York Times what airport, in his opinion at least, has the best meals.
Well, according to Bourdain, Changi Airport in Singapore has the highest quality food.
“Probably Changi Airport in Singapore has the best food; it has a hawker center for the employees that’s open to the public.”
The Parts Unknown and No Reservations host also counts the Tokyo airport as a runner-up, being a fan of their store-bought sushi and egg salad sandwiches that are amazingly fresh:
“It has a Lawson convenience store that has these ethereal egg salad sandwiches that defy logic and science with their deliciousness and apparent freshness. They sit there at near room temperature for I don’t know how long on white bread wrapped in plastic, and I don’t know why but they’re ridiculously good.”
