Singapore's Top Restaurants - - South American -

Headed by chef pa­tron Diego Jac­quet of Lon­don’s Zoilo restau­rant, bochinche is all about the beef, here served Ar­gen­tinian style. In fact, all the beef served at the restau­rant come from grass-fed cat­tle im­ported from Ar­gentina.

Take your pick from var­i­ous choice cuts—rib­eye, fil­let, flank, skirt et al—and have them cooked in the wood and char­coal grill, then served with chimichurri, a herby sauce redo­lent of gar­lic, cilantro, pars­ley et al. Other Ar­gen­tinian sta­ples you’ll find here in­clude chorizo cro­quettes, dainty deep-fried morsels of creamed potato specked with chorizo; and em­panadas, the tra­di­tional stuffed pas­try that’s a Latin Amer­i­can favourite. The lat­ter comes with three dif­fer­ent fill­ings here—tuna and toma­toes, hand­cut beef with po­ta­toes and a del­ish spinach with goat’s cheese, raisins and pine nuts.

Other crowd-pleasers: the grilled wa­ter­melon and toma­toes salad with moz­zarella and a heady wild gar­lic pesto, and the grilled oc­to­pus with po­ta­toes and green pea ragout.

The restau­rant sits just 45 and fills up fast with a fairly trendy crowd from around the area. Reser­vati­ions are highly rec­om­mended.
