A food truck in Sweden is hitting the streets to bring airport food to the masses and promote airport restaurants as more than just a layover fueling station for flyers.
After overhauling its restaurant and bar options last year, the Stockholm Arlanda Airport has launched the Arlanda Food Trucks & Co., selling lunchtime fare like lasagna, truffle risotto, ramen soup, pulled pork and osso buco, all meals that are available from the airport's 50 eateries.
"Above all, we hope we can inspire more people to get to the airport well in advance to discover the broad array of food on offer," said Michael Persson Gripkow of Swedish airport group Swedavia.
Meanwhile, popular food site The Daily Meal released its picks for the best airport restaurants around the world last year, giving the top spot to Porta Gaig at the El Prat del Llobregat airport in Barcelona for its traditional Catalan fare.
Rounding out the top three restaurants were Salt Lick BBQ at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas and Tortas Frontera at Chicago O'Hare.
Dining options at the Arlanda airport include Kitchen & Table by celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson who grew up in Sweden, a spot where flyers can sample New York dining trends prepared with Swedish ingredients.
Andersson Food & Akvavit also serves Scandinavian-style tapas by award-winning chef Leif Mannerstrom in terminal 5 and the Himmel & Hav Brasseri & Bar also offers modern and international fare.
