SSP and independent operators bring eclectic foodie flavours to Daxing

SSP Group has opened six food & beverage units (under three concession packages) at the new Beijing Daxing International Airport.

The SSP portfolio includes Blue Frog Bar & Grill, one of the fastest-growing Western casual dining restaurants in China, which operates in the third floor airside zone. The chain’s menu features an emphasis on North American flavours, including steaks, burgers, sliders and ribs.

Popular Japanese restaurant chain Saboten also makes its first appearance at a Mainland airport in China, with a new outlet opening on the second floor of the domestic airside area. It features Saboten’s signature dishes such as a special tonkatsu sauce and Koshihikari rice.

A second Saboten unit serves those same Japanese delights on the fifth floor departure landside mezzanine alongside three further Asian F&B brands. These include Michelin-recommended wonton noodle specialist Chee Kei; Chinese snacks chain Taoyuan Village and Hungry Korean, which offers Korean dishes with a modern twist.

SSP Asia Pacific CEO Mark Angela said at the time of landing the contract: “We’re delighted to have secured this new deal at Beijing Daxing International Airport and to have the opportunity to bring our market-leading concepts to this exciting new development. The travel retail market in China continues to grow at a rapid pace, and these latest launches will enable us to grow our presence and gain a stronger foothold in this burgeoning region.”

But Daxing’s food & beverage footprint is not just the domain of international operators SSP and Lagardère Travel Retail. There’s plenty of independent flavour here in every sense as the following pictures show.
