Vancouver International Airport (YVR) always does well in rankings of global airports, though its food options aren’t necessarily the reason why. Now YVR is getting ready to bring six new restaurants in for a landing over the next three years to make sure passengers don’t leave the airport hungry.

“We are just thrilled at what the future of food and beverage is going to look like at YVR,” Susan Stiene, Director, Commercial Services, Vancouver Airport Authority told Daily Hive.

“The new additions coming onboard next year and in the future will provide fresher, healthier options while also infusing some international flavour in to the building so passengers can really begin their culinary journey right here at the airport before they take off.”

From cheap eats to fine dining, here are the six new dining destinations opening up at YVR.

LIFT Bar & Grill

First to arrive at YVR is a second outpost of LIFT Bar & Grill, which is a popular Coal Harbour destination known for its incredible views. They’ll have a menu of elegant options, including cocktails.

Arriving: Winter 2016

Bánh Shop

Already operating two locations in Dallas, Texas (including at DFW airport), Bánh Shop offers travelers a menu of Vietnamese fare, from the traditional bahn mi sandwich to noodle bowls and salads. Look for vegetarian options here, too.

Arriving: Spring 2017
