gaucho hong kong preview

Unless you’re a bit weird or vegetarian (perhaps both), steak is one of life’s great joys. Who cares that there are already dozens of steakhouses in Hong Kong? When a new one opens, particularly when it’s Gaucho, one of London’s finest, there’s obviously going to be a stir of excitement.

I attended the media preview of Gaucho this week and was so impressed that I thought I’d write a pre-review, since I can’t base a whole experience on free-flowing Malbec, sliced steak, ceviche and mini empanadas alone. All I can say is that all of the above were seriously delicious and I can’t wait to get my teeth stuck into more (I quite literally can’t wait, so I’m going this very weekend!).

The space, decked out with cowhide chairs, cowhide walls and basically a lot of cowhide, in the style of the London restaurants, is uber cool and inviting.

The steak is all Argentinian, of course, all 100% grass-fed, free-range and wet-aged. I’m used to grain-fed and dry-aged in my line of work. I can’t necessarily pinpoint which is better, as both are very different, but the four cuts of steak I tried at Gaucho – rump, fillet, sirloin and rib-eye – were certainly delicious, even more so when topped with freshly-made chimichurri.

Watch this space for a full review to come very soon!
