Gastronomes and F&B professionals: Welcome to the Thats Food & Drink Awards 2019 in Guangzhou!

It’s that time of year again, foodies – time to vote for your favorite spots to wine and dine in our annual That’s Food & Drink Awards! Voting is now officially open, both online and through our official WeChat platform. With each successive edition, the competition grows stiffer, as new concepts arise to challenge the status quo and keep everyone else in the industry on their toes.

This year’s awards are going to be extra special, with a new award scheme being launched to better recognize the various levels of excellence achieved by local F&B outlets. Here’s how it works (in a nutshell): The winning restaurant in each category of our Readers’ Choice Awards will receive a certificate acknowledging their accomplishments and popularity; also, winners will be visited by an undercover reviewer who will award each establishment with a rating from one to five ‘Golden Forks.’ (That’s right, this year, winners of a Readers’ Choice Award will take home TWO prizes!)

Additionally, our editors will be visiting a number of local favorites and lesser-known gems to award additional Golden Forks. It should be a lot of fun, and we’re really looking forward to this new and exciting rating system.

As mentioned above, you can cast your vote now on our official voting website. You can access it via a link in our official WeChat account (ThatsGuangzhou) until October 29.

As with previous years, we will also offer daily flash voting on our official WeChat account, with different categories featured each day. The voting will be open for a 48-hour period, during which time account subscribers will be able to vote for their favorite spots directly on WeChat. Our first WeChat flash vote will launch today and focuses on the category ‘Mexican Restaurant of the Year.

The daily WeChat flash votes will be tallied up and awarded on a weighted scale, with 100 votes going to first place, 50 votes to second place and 25 votes to third place. These votes will then be added to the overall total. 

Winners will be announced at our exclusive awards ceremony in November. Stay tuned!
