Delightful Airport Dining Experiences

Tucking into a good meal at airports before you depart for your flight or after you’ve landed is always a good idea. Lucky for us, airports nowadays provide more than the average meals for rushing passengers. More and more, quality dining options are in high demand, thus transforming airports into a culinary destination as well.

An airport like Kuala Lumpur International Airport offers a variety of eateries that are worth a visit before or after your flight. Travelers can look forward to an assortment of winning dishes by notable and international names such as Fukuya, Godiva, Grandmama’s, Tampopo, Airlink Gastro Village, Sama Sama Express and more.

SalamToday was invited to sample some of the dishes from the restaurants recently during Malaysia Airports’ annual KULinary campaign which was launched in partnership with Malaysia International Gastronomy Festival (MIGF) called MIGF KULinary festival.

The KULinary event is held to award the top food and beverage outlets at both KLIA and KLIA2 terminal. Since its inception, the campaign serves as a catalyst for F&B operators at KUL to strive not only in terms of food variety, quality and value but also the service level to ensure an enjoyable dining experience for all passengers passing through its airports.

The restaurants were awarded based on being evaluated by a team of professional judges, such as Chef Datuk Dr Redzuawan Ismail.

“We shine the spotlight on the top outlets found at KLIA Main and KLIA 2 terminal and put the accomplished food and beverage selections on the radar of travelers and visitors who might otherwise be unaware of them. Whether it’s a specialty dish or a welcoming ambience that is on these prospective diners’ wish lists,” said Organising Chairman for MIGF, Dato’ Steve Day.

In line with its initiative to revamp the retail shopping and dining experience, travelers can also expect new F&B outlets to open n KLIA such as Din by Din Tai Fun, and Jamie Oliver’s renowned restaurant chain.
