For most travelers their vacation starts as soon as they clear security and are free to shop, eat and drink to their heart’s desire (and to their wallet, waistline and liver’s dismay.)

Airplane food hasn’t had the best rep (read our article here) so it’s no surprise travelers are filling up on the array of exotic culinary options which wait for them at the terminal. Usually, passengers have plenty of time to kill, so why not, they’re on vacation after all.

The food website The Daily Meal compiled a list of the world’s best airport restaurants. They asked chefs and food writers to condense existing ranking to a list of the top 35 establishments, they took inspiration from the likes of CNN, Conde Nest Traveler and Travel Channel and narrowed down their findings to just 35 winners.
