Did you know that the Salt Lake City International Airport is a food destination in itself? Well, you will never expect what you will see when you arrive at the airport. From just a few concessionaires several years ago, the dining scene at the airport developed and is booming now.
In fact, I restaurant hop here before I head home to my humble abode in Utah. Just look at some of the impressive restaurant selections that you can enjoy while at the airport.

My personal favorite is the High West Distillery. I am pleased that they opened shop at the airport so that I do not have to go far to have my fill of the Great Rocky Mountain whiskey after a long, tiring flight. I do not have to worry about going home because my wife always picks me up.
I suddenly remembered the moment when she almost couldn’t pick me up due to spilled pasta sauce on her beloved carpet. She called me frantically, and out of panic, she forgot to call our trusted commercial carpet cleaner.
She set an appointment, and it only took a few hours for the carpet cleaners to arrive and remove the mess. I did not even notice the time passed already when my wife called me to announce that she has reached the airport to pick me up. Efficient carpet cleaners are really a blessing to on-the-go couples like us.
I am truly proud that the Salt Lake City Airport has already achieved a level that could match the dining scene in other major airports in the United States such as the JFK, San Francisco, Philadelphia and Los Angeles.
Years ago, when you arrive the airport, expect to eat the usual dull airport food. Now, it is like arriving in a downtown mall that offers dining and shopping options. If you have an outbound flight from Salt Lake City, I suggest that you come much earlier than your check-in time so that you can explore what this great airport could offer.
