Flavours of Asia

Two local F&B favourites have landed at Singapore Changi Airport, offering the best in Asian beer and baking.

SSP Group has opened both Asian high street hero Tai Cheong Bakery and bespoke concept Archipelago Craft Brew House at Singapore Changi Airport.

Established in 1954, Tai Cheong Bakery is one of Hong Kong’s most popular bakeries with over 20 outlets across Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan. The new unit at Changi will be the second operated by SSP, with the first located at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

Famed for its egg tarts – made with cookie dough rather than flaky pastry – Tai Cheong bakery will serve a selection of Asian-style baked goods and pastries to eat in and take away.

On the beer front, Archipelago Craft Brew House is a new concept developed in partnership between SSP and the Archipelago Brewery by Asia Pacific Brewery, which has known for handcrafted, speciality beers in Singapore.

“As a pioneer of the craft beer movement in Southeast Asia since 2006, Archipelago Brewery has been growing our presence by consistently developing new product innovations that won over a legion of fans with evolving palates,” said Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore Managing Director Andy Hewson.

“We are very excited to extend our presence by partnering with SSP to debut the first Archipelago Concept Bar at Changi Airport by offering tourists a wide range of freshly brewed beers with an unexpected twist of local flavours set to revolutionise the craft beer choices there.”

“Original recipes and flavours will create a true Sense of Place among international travellers looking for truly authentic experiences”

The bar, which features a showcase cold room housing the beer, serves its range of award-winning craft beverages including Singapore Blonde Ale and Bohemian Lager. The selection on offer at the airport will change every six to eight months.

“We’re delighted to be working with Tai Cheong Bakery and Archipelago Brewery to further improve our F&B offer at Changi Airport,” said SSP Asia Pacific CEO Mark Angela.

“Both brands have a strong heritage and are highly regarded by local customers, and their use of original recipes and flavours will create a true Sense of Place among international travellers looking for truly authentic experiences.”

Changi Airport Group Senior Vice President for Airside Concessions Teo Chew Hoon added: “SSP continues to wow Changi Airport’s passengers with their innovative concepts and offerings. Their new Archipelago Bar takes passenger experience to a new level as they marry their unique craft beer flavours together with Singapore’s signature salted egg yolk offerings, creating an all-new blend of tastes for locals and visitors to enjoy. We look forward to even more exciting partnerships with SSP.”
