McDonald's Has a Monopoly on Airport Food in the BKK Domestic Terminal

Flying domestic in Thailand through Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport? You've got one choice for grabbing some food in the terminal, and we're not kidding. It's McDonald's.

We spotted this airport food nook after stepping off a Bangkok Airways flight into BKK from HKT (Phuket) last week, and were shocked by their less than appetizing catchphrase: "The Only Restaurant in Domestic." Well, that may be right but the threat of it doesn't mean that we're going to give into a burger and McDs sundae when we're supposedly in the capital of awesome food. Where's the Pad Thai to go, at the very least?!

Misleading Signage

I was in BKK Domestic several times last month around the same time you were (I saw your Foursquare check-ins when I was in Thailand too) and found the sign misleading. Right beside this McDonald's express is a short hallway with several other restaurants including bigger McD, Auntie Anne's, Dunkin Donuts, beer house, Popeyes or other chicken place, pan Asian, and couple other choices. So, McDonald's not the only choice. There is only one food SECTION, not restaurant. You must not have gone down the hallway.

How dare they
