  • But Changi Airport isn't the only airport with great dining options. In the United States, airports like JFK in New York and LAX in Los Angeles have also upped their food game. At JFK, travelers can get a taste of New York's famous Shake Shack burgers, while LAX offers a variety of options from celebrity chefs like Wolfgang Puck and Nancy Silverton.

  • Even smaller airports are getting in on the action. At Portland International Airport in Oregon, visitors can grab a craft beer and a locally-sourced meal at restaurants like Country Cat and Laurelwood Brewing Company.

  • But airport dining isn't just about high-end restaurants and local specialties. Many airports are also introducing unique food concepts that you won't find anywhere else. At San Francisco International Airport, for example, travelers can grab a bite to eat at the world's first airport yoga studio and cafe, called Yoga Room Cafe.

  • So next time you're at the airport, don't just settle for a quick snack from the nearest vending machine. Take some time to explore the culinary offerings and see what delicious surprises you might find. Who knows, you might just discover your new favorite airport restaurant.
