The Scandalous Scoop is a regular feature where our editors share the latest food and drink gossip making the rounds in Guangzhou.

We’re digging:


The miraculous, sudden and completely unexpected reopening of Zagol Habesha Ethiopian Restaurant in Taojin; fresh, fishy, Hawaiian-inspired eats at Poke Remix (read our review here); 


The Happy Monk’s newest incarnation – and first location in Haizhu District – on Party Pier


epic city views from Mercato’s patio; the myriad of new F&B spots that recently debuted in the brand spankin’ new K11 Mall in Zhujiang New Town; and the return of Thursday night pub quiz at Hooley’s.

We’re done with:


The departure of ‘Szechuan’ and gongbao McNugget dipping sauces at Chinese McDonald’s locations nationwide; the depressing reality that no Guangzhou restaurants managed to crack the esteemed Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list; and the restaurant-dwelling rodent that took a near-suicidal leap into diners’ hot pot in Shenzhen.
