SYDNEY AIRPORT RESTAURANT WINS GLOBAL F&B AWARD
Kitchen by Mike at Sydney Airport has been awarded Airport Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year in the 2018 FAB Awards held in Helsinki, Finland.
The first to Australian airport concept, headed by internationally renowned Australian chef, Mike McEnearney, features a gourmet menu with seasonal produce by local Australian suppliers.
Designed to address the limitations in healthier in-flight food options, the concept is based on Mike’s difficulty in finding healthy, wholesome meals at the airport that his family could take on board.
For those on the go, Mike has created Fly by Mike carry on tray-packs exclusively for passengers departing T1 International.
Passengers can select from classic Kitchen by Mike salads and roast vegetables; light meat and fish dishes; homemade cakes and puddings and seasonal fruit to enjoy a healthy meal, despite being 35,000 feet in the air.
Mike recently extended his relationship with the airport by opening Kitchen by Mike Express at T1 International in the casual dining precinct before security – a speedy spin on his original concept.
Sydney Airport’s general manager for retail, Glyn Williams, said the accolade reinforces Sydney Airport’s retail re-set – delivering the very best in global and local offerings to suit the evolving passenger demographic.
“The unique concept is something we’re very proud of as we transform the dining portfolio across the airport and create a great experience for customers,” enthused Williams.
Sydney Airport was also shortlisted at the recent DFNI Global Awards 2018 for the ‘Airport with most supportive approach to travel retail’.
