Argentine Steak Restaurant,GAUCHO Hong Kong,Debuts in Asia

October 15, 2014 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

London’s award-winning Argentine steak restaurant,GAUCHO,will make its Hong Kongdebut in Central in October 2014.

GAUCHO lands in Hong Kong as the flagship restaurant in Asia as it makes its entrance into a whole new market, promising“the true essence of Argentina – its food, wine, culture,and most importantly,the passion of the people”.

Internationally renowned forsucculent steaks and mouth-watering ceviches, GAUCHO Hong Kong remains true to its elegant, individual style at theLHT Towerin the heart of Central.

The décor is styled around the brand’s iconic cow hide walls, opulent black and white leather furniture, mirror panels and crystal chandeliers.

The menu is headlined by steak cuts from the finest 100% grass-fed, free-range Argentine Angus Beef, considered the best in the world. It is cooked the traditional Argentine way – cut to order, grilled and turned only once to seal the juices and enhance the flavor.

“Provenance is everything at GAUCHO. We source our meat and many of our ingredients from Argentina because we won’t compromise on the authenticity of the experience,” said Executive Chef Fernando Trocca. “Passionate beef farmers in the pampas produce cattle exclusively for us, selectively chosen by our experts. The free-range cattle feed on 17 different types of grass in the most luscious grasslands in the world, free of pesticides, which makes for extraordinary beef.”

GAUCHO’s culinary style combines traditional Argentine cooking, over open-fire asado grills, with modern ‘Nuevo Latino’ tastes. Specialties extend to award-winning Argentine ceviches – ‘the new sushi’ – and more traditional empanadas.

The specially designed menu features no less than four different steak cuts, to provide guests with as many options as possible. Meticulously trained staff will approach guests’ tables with the daily ‘Beef Board’, showcasing GAUCHO’s top-grade cuts on offer.

The staff are extremely knowledgeable and are able to advise on all aspects of the Gaucho experience, exhibiting an impressive expertise about the beef: the attributes of the different cuts, the aging process, cooking methods, and the perfect wine pairings.

This high standard of service is a result of a rigorous training program, the Gaucho Academy, and it is this substantial educational investment that ensures that every member of the Gaucho team meets the highest expectations of the guests.

As well as their steaks, GAUCHO offers an array of Argentina’s classic dishes, ranging from the forty-eight hour dry-aged Provoleta and Beef Empanada, to the Humita Saltena, a dish that can be found in almost any Argentine household. GAUCHO’s Ecuadorian Ceviche is another culinary staple for the restaurant, having been featured on its menus for over a decade.

In 1999, Phil Crozier, GAUCHO’s Director of Wine,took the momentous decision to make GAUCHO’s wine list all-Argentine. 15 years on, GAUCHO now boasts the world’s largest selection of Argentine wines outside of Argentina, and will be bringing many of these to the Hong Kong market for the first time.

In 2009, with the help of expert wine-maker Mauricio Lorca, GAUCHO’s own unique Malbec, Viña Patricia, was released, with grapes originating from its 80-year old vineyards. Today, GAUCHO Hong Kong’s Argentina-specific wine-cellar has madeit one of the only restaurants in Hong Kong thatoffers such an extensive variety from the world’s fifth largest producer of wine.

GAUCHO Hong Kong joins a brand portfolio of nearly 20 restaurants, with their flagship in London, as well as outlets in Buenos Aires and Dubai.

GAUCHO is a lifestyle rather than a restaurant – it offers an experience portrayed through its food and design.
