The newest member of the Q Mex family – arguably Beijing's most popular Mexican outlets – doesn't reinvent the wheel, but follows the tried-and-tested approach of giving something for everyone, with fajitas, burritos, burgers, pizzas and more. The menu is largely the same as the Sanlitun mothership, featuring the same schedule of daily deals, and hitting the same mark, too.

This new Shuangjing setting also offers a generally calmer experience with a smaller crowd to fight for tables with – there's also a lot to be said for sitting in a spanking new venue, too, pleasantly appointed with decor flourishes such as street art, brought indoors. A pool table towards the back of the venue also offers a sporting outlet, and a fresher surface than the Sanlitun branch's well-worn trusty steed.

The arrival of the Space 3 mall that houses this new spot has certainly provided a boost to Shuangjing's F&B scene, bringing with it new branches of established names such as Moka Bros and this Q Mex. The area has long had an expat presence and a number of Western restaurants, but we may be seeing the start of something more substantial here down south. Whatever happens, Q Mex is no doubt doing its part in building a better Shuangjing.
