Where to Find the Best Airport Sushi

We know what you’re thinking: “airport” and “sushi” are two words that should never be spoken together. We get it, there’s nothing that needs to be fresh more than sushi, and nowhere is known for skimping on freshness quite like airport restaurants.

But hear us out — we’ve seen airport food come a long way over the past few years, especially in terms of freshness. Gone are the days of soggy sandwiches and stale chips — today’s on-the-fly dining options are gourmet, delicious, artisanal and nothing to be afraid of. And yes, that even means sushi.

Better yet, these spots aren’t just in Asia — they’re worldwide. From New York to Oslo, these are the spots worth conquering your fear of airport sushi.

Yo! Sushi, Oslo Airport Gardermoen

Oslo might not scream “sushi,” but Yo! Sushi is a fun and delicious conveyor belt-style restaurant that pulls through when it comes to feeding that sushi craving. They offer seven different colors of plates (at seven different prices), which makes it especially easy to avoid racking up a bill — which is often far too easy to do at sushi restaurants. They offer dishes ranging from the modern and Americanized, including avocado maki and apply gyoza and salted miso caramel, to more traditional selections, including tamago nigiri and salmon maki.

One Flew South, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

Widely considered one of the best airport restaurants in the world, One Flew South offers a unique range of global, travel-inspired fare, including an upscale sushi menu. The restaurant emphasizes their commitment to fresh ingredients, and they definitely deliver on their promise — especially with the sushi selections. Best of all, you can top off your hand roll, sashimi, sushi or roll with some authentic sake.

Itacho Sushi, Singapore Changi Airport

Itacho means “chief chef” in Japanese, and Itacho Sushi strives to embody this standard of freshness, attention to detail and world-class cuisine. The restaurant looks more like a hip NYC or LA restaurant than an airport vendor — and it takes more like it, too. But with affordable prices, this spot will leave you feeling satisfied and ready to take flight (…literally) without breaking the budget.
