Bangkok Bangkok Airport: a Food Temple

Suvarnabhumi Airport is both one of Asia’s major transportation hubs and a boon for travelling foodies.

Let’s face it: no one loves spending any more time in airports than absolutely necessary. However, some terminals are more pleasant places to wile away the time than others. Sadly, Don Mueang International Airport, which accommodates most of the budget and many domestic flights, is still rather lacking, though the domestic terminal is in considerably better shape than the international one. At the other end of the spectrum, Suvarnabhumi Airport, one of Southeast Asia’s most important transportation hubs, is as modern as can be and offers an impressive range of dining and shopping options. Walking around, it’s easy to see why this is one of the most Instagrammed places on the planet. The Duty Free section encompasses a vast range of upscale international shops and it’s even possible to squeeze in a massage before your flight. Though you won’t find gourmet dining options here, the following places are ideal for a quick bite.

Mango Tree

While this Thai chain clearly tones down the spice and makes a number of flavour adjustments to cater to tourists, it still offers reliable plates of pad thai and other staple dishes. If you’re hoping for a last local meal before you skip town, this is the place to get it.

Magic Food Point

A little known secret among frequent fliers, this unpretentious food court is the best place in the airport for a cheap and cheerful plate of Thai food. Unlike most of the airport’s eateries, prices here are kept to a relatively affordable level. While no one would claim that the dingy fluorescent space is atmospheric, it is fair to say what it lacks in charm it more than makes up for in terms selection and price. As a bonus, Magic Food Point is open 24/7.

Dean & Deluca

Located in the international terminal after security and immigration, this outpost of the popular New York brand serves the best coffee in the airport, along with muffins, croissants and other breakfast fare. Though they don’t offer the full Dean & Deluca menu, there’s still plenty to choose from here, including New York style thin-crust pizza slices.

KIN Japanese Restaurant & Ramen

After the hassle of flying, a big, piping hot bowl of comfort food sometimes really hits the spot. The ramen at this casual eatery might not pass muster in Tokyo, but it’s solidly executed and thoroughly satisfying.
