The Hong Kong outpost of this London-based Argentinian steak house delivers rich flavours and precision doneness.
Gaucho's private rooms can be booked for wine tastings.
The thin pastry on the beef empanadas keeps the beef, red pepper, onion and ají molido filling in perfect harmony.
The 500g spiral-cut tira de ancho (a rib-eye cut of grass-fed beef) comes done to a precise medium-rare with wonderful marbling and texture, while the herbs and vinegar in the chimichurri sauce help cut through the fat.
The humble tomato salad provides a light respite from the heavier meat, with a variety of red and green tomatoes tossed with capers, lemon zest, chives and olive oil. 5/F, LHT Tower, 31 Queen’s Road Central, Central中環皇后大道中31號陸海通大廈5樓TEL: +852 2386 8090 www.gauchorestaurants.com.hk
