London’s award-winning Argentine steak restaurant, Gaucho, will make its Hong Kong debut this month, with reservations scheduled to open today.

Internationally renowned for succulent steaks and mouth-watering ceviches, Gaucho Hong Kong will be open daily for lunch and dinner, and is located on the 5th floor of the LHT Tower in 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. They are 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.”

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 customers.

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 one of the world’s largest selections of Argentine wines outside of Argentina, and will be bringing many of these to the Hong Kong market for the first time.

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