Vacations start the moment you step off the plane. Naturally, your first stop after arriving, checking your bags, and making it through security is to find the best airport food and beverages that airport has to get you in the holiday spirit. So it may be quite frustrating when you’re exhausted, pressed for time, and hungry to find that the only food options are breath mints and Pringles.

However, when it comes to cuisine, certain airports really provide. The top spots with the best airport food throughout the world and in the United States have been identified by Radical Storage, a luggage storage company and travel advice provider. The company studied information from social media postings, restaurant listings, average dish costs, and reviews from passengers at 100 of the busiest airports in the globe to determine which airports have the finest dining options.

Other airports with more specialized culinary choices were also included in the report. The finest airport in the world for vegetarians and vegans is Zürich Airport in Switzerland, which has 36 restaurants with an average rating of 3.8 out of 5 stars. In contrast, Manchester Airport in Northern England has 26 vegetarian and vegan restaurant options. When compared to Kansai International Airport in Japan, the world’s most costly airport, where the average price of main courses is $34.02, Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Vietnam is the most cost-effective airport, with the lowest average food cost of $2.75.
