Airports have some of the most horrible “food,” if you can even call it that. It seems all the restaurants, and I hesitatingly use that word, are fast food or just plain junk food. It is rare to find anything that you can eat that won't make you feel terrible as you are packed into seat on the airplane for your flight.
After arriving to the Arizona Airport, at the prerequisite 2 hours prior to lift-off, I was hoping and planning to have dinner. I was skeptical, as I have a very hard time finding anything that I can eat much less enjoy, at any airport.
My friend and I walked around the stores and "restaurants" looking for anything that resembled actual food. After buying an awesomely cute Hello Kitty watch for my daughter, we spied someone eating a beautiful looking vibrant green salad and thought that this restaurant just might be promising.
After perusing the menu, we decided on a collection of "sides." (I highly recommend ordering from sides menus, as they are generally fresh and usually have all that you need without a large and overly filling meal.)
We ended up ordering a raw kale salad (I know right, raw kale amazing!), a Brussels sprout salad (recipe) and a vegetable roast of seasonal vegetables which was mostly parsnips, winter squash and sweet potatoes. We were very happy with our selections.
The meal was fulfilling, fresh and delicious.
So when you are traveling in Arizona I highly recommend Chelsea's Kitchen restaurant. And I am sure that you will enjoy your meal...even in an airport.
