It is commonly known for plane food to not taste good. Normally, people don't get food from the airplane if they can avoid it since they are usually bland. (Coincidentally, 'plane' sounds exactly like the word 'plain'- which is synonymous to bland.)

However, the case is different when it comes to restaurants and food chains that are found in airports. Some airports all around the globe surprisingly have places where you can treat yourself to a scrumptious feast while waiting for your flight.

Some of them were even made by famous chefs from all over the world and they can be found within the confines of an airport that's near you. Who would have known, right?
