The That’s Beijing 2019 Food & Drink Awards somehow came and went. If you didn’t attend the rootin’-tootin’ Wild West-themed bash on December 12, it was held at the trendy Chaoyang saloon Rodeo. With a lively band and the glitterati of Beijing's best restaurants and cafes, it was definitely a night to remember.
It’s basically our job to know what’s going on in Beijing's food-and-drink world. There was never any doubt in our mind that Beijing is an amazing city for eating and drinking. But now that the 2019 Food & Drink Awards are over and the winners have officially been selected, one thing is very clear... Beijing's food-and-drink scene gets better every year.
Whether you're looking for the best Beijing duck, the best brunch spot or even the best pub grub in town, we've got you covered with the city's best restaurants.

Kronenbourg 1664 is the most sold French beer in the world and the market leader for high-end premium beers. It was named after the year the Hatt family, the founders of Kronenbourg, first started commercial brewing. Kronenbourg is the fifth oldest beer brand in the world that still exists today. 1664 is ideal with a meal on the terrace, as an aperitif or simply for the pleasure of it.
