Heathrow Airport - "Food on the Fly"
Those of us who do a bit of flying usually have a favourite airport - mine is Changi (SIN) in Singapore. Changi is seriously amazing and you can happily while away a long layover there (shopping, pedicure, swimming pool, food, more shopping, butterfly lounge, koi carp pond, more shopping, massage, several hotels, free movie theatre, friendly and helpful staff etc.). My current least favourite is John F. Kennedy (JFK) in New York. JFK is utterly disorganised and staffed by disinterested people who have no idea, clue or responsibility - and it's filthy.
I know lots of people really don't like Heathrow (LHR) in London, but I think it's okay, and I love the new Terminal 5. If you're transiting through LHR just make sure you've got plenty of time - it's big. Anyway, LHR has an amazing selection of 73 restaurants and bars throughout, ranging from Gordon Ramsay to McDonalds.
John Torode and Gregg Wallace, the hosts of BBC's "Master Chef" have joined with LHR to release a little guide to what's available, called "Food on the Fly". It's a really handy little reference, and you can download a free copy by clicking right HERE, or there are 10,000 copies available for FREE at LHR if you're passing through in the next little while.
