We did it! Gung Ho took an easy first round victory against Pizza Goliath Dominos. Next up: Hutong Pizza! Hutong pizza is an old name in the Beijing pizza business and represents our first local challenge. Second round voting starts today and ends next Wednesday.
More good news! Our sister store Sugar Shack Pizza also advanced past Passby Bar to challenge late night eatery First Floor in the second round.
Thanks everyone for your support so far, especially if you voted in the first round. We’re going to ask you to vote a lot in the coming month, but don’t forget – every round is going to be half the size of the round before, and will take much less of your time. So please continue to vote and let’s see how this thing shakes out! You can vote for the next 16 matchups online here!
Voting is it’s Own Reward
To make this interesting, we’re going to do a little competition of our own. Whatever round we win, we’re going to give you that much of a discount. If we win Round 2 (but get knocked out in our 3rd round matchup), it’ll be 20% off for a day, Round 3 win (4th round loss), 30% off, etc. all the way up to the finals! If we take the whole thing, we’ll throw a massive pizza party at our new Sanlitun store. Pizza, beer, the works! So what are you waiting for?

TBJ Pizza Cup Launch
The Beijinger’s Pizza Cup is an extension of their incredibly successful (and hotly contested) Burger Cup event, now in in it’s 4th year. The event was lauched with a massive outdoor event with over 3000 people in attendance. Gung Ho was there in full force (of course) – slinging out over 1000 slices over 9 hours. The GHP booth was definitely the place to be, with a sounds system, eating area, kids pizza classes, a craft beer bar courtesy of Trouble and thanks to Sugar Shack in Wudaokou, a Beer Poor Tournament! Very Gung Ho.
Enjoy the sun before Summer official ends on the quiet China View patio with a Gung Ho lunch deal. Perfect for 2-4 people, order any pizza and salad and get either a side or 2 soft drinks, or add 20rmb and choose one of our new shares, including fried fish bites, BBQ ribs or chicken wings.
11AM TO 2PM EVERY DAY @ SANLITUN GUNG HO
Finished work? Ah well, close enough! Celebrate the (near) end of another work day with 2 for 1 craft beers and even craftier cocktails at the new Gung Ho bar. Try some of our new beer cocktails, including our Margarita Cerveza and Beery Mary.
5:30AM TO 7PM EVERY DAY @ SANLITUN GUNG HO
Every Thursday night, spend 300rmb and get a bottle of bubbly, free!
Kick off your Thursday night with some good vibes, great food, and a glass (or three!) of bubbly! Bring down some girlfriends, share some Gung Ho gourmet pizza and pick up an ice-cold bottle of champers on the house.
Ladies only! Plenty of beer for the boys behind the bar.
Starts October 9
It’s getting colder, time to look back at a pretty great Beijing Summer. In particular, a beautiful crystal clear June 7 up at the Great Wall – with GHP in attendance as usual.
The Beijing Hikers took a crew up to see the Nine Eyes Tower near the so-called “Wild Wall” section of the Jiankou Great Wall after which they hit up the Gung Ho Hut for a post-hike nosh featuring fresh pizza – piping hot out of the homemade pizza oven!
Thanks to Hayden Opie for organizing, and Gung Ho’s Gus Hayden for making the pizza and manning the oven!
With the recent renovation of our restaurant, we saw a chance to expand our menu and take it to the level. If you’d had a chance to try some of our new items I think you’ll agree. Unfortunately there are now a few little items we can’t deliver… You’ll just have to come down to the restaurant and check them out for yourself!
Do you like mac ‘n’ cheese? Here’s a mac ‘n’ cheese, GUNG HO style. Baked macaroni in a rich bechamel sauce topped with cheddar, crispy bacon and mozzarella. Dig in.
Here’s a little treat with some Asian influence: slow cooked pork in a sweet balsamic reduction served with stir-fried Asian veggies. What are you waiting for?
Gung Ho Sanlitun – Open 11am to 11pm Every Day (China View, opposite Gonti East Gate)

Gung Ho Customers,
As some of you might already know, our original online ordering site is back online.
We’re always hungry for new ways to grow, improve, and reach new customers. We invested a lot of time developing a new platform with a lot of potential but ultimately it did not reach expectations.
We’d like to apologize for the inconvenience and thank you once more for your patience and support.
If you have any feedback please drop us a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
