As a self-proclaimed foodie, I’m always looking for an opportunity to eat good food. Even when I only have a 45 minute layover at a busy international airport. After reading in Food and Wine, the Best Places to Eat at Airports, I knew I wanted to try One Flew South. With an innovative menu delivering a self-proclaimed “southernational” menu, Chef Duane Nutter (@ChefDuaneNutter), the quality of food with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients is top notch. It really is the best airport food I have ever had.
- Mussels and edamame with miso broth – garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, garlic toast
- Breast of duck – french lentils, bok choy, parsnips, carrots, and cherry miso sauce
- Pisco sour – pisco, lime, sugar, egg white, amargo bitters
The drink was sublime, the duck perfectly cooked, and the mussels were a welcomed change with a fierce kick.
For those worried about catching connections I got into the restaurant at 2:45 and was able to eat everything and get my check and start walking again by 3:30. Had I only ordered one item I could have easily gotten it in 15 minutes.
