Gaucho pays homage to its British roots with new Sunday Night Roast menu

The Argentinian UK-born Gaucho Hong Kong is paying a tribute to its British roots by debuting its first ever Sunday Night Roast menu.

Choose from a menu of five tempting mains served alongside a selection of traditional side dishes for only HK$299.

As any food aficionado would know, at Gaucho, and with any Argentinian asado (the country’s name for roast), the star of the show is beef. For a taste of the renowned Argentine beef, choose from the Bife de Ancho, evenly marbled throughout for a beautifully, full-bodied flavour, or the Bife de Chorizo, a tender cut of sirloin with a strip of juicy crackling.

For those who prefer poultry, the mouthwatering Spatchcock Chicken proves that Gaucho’s other meat options can be equally soul satisfying. Marinated to perfection with oregano and parsley, the chicken is both succulent on the inside and perfectly crispy on the outside. Each mouthful is packed with a delicate touch of juicy flavours and when paired with the crispy roasted potatoes, makes a match made in heaven.

Allowing those who prefer fish to appreciate the roast experience with equal pleasure, Gaucho provides an alternative option with an oven-baked Sea Bass Fillet.

We, of course, had to give the alternative dish a try and were pleasantly surprised. The delicate fish, which is first pan seared and then oven-baked, was perfectly light, moist and tender in flavour. We came to the conclusion, that while this isn’t your typical roast meat, we would 100% order it again.

For those looking for a traditional Sunday roast, Gaucho’s new menu will confidently satisfy your craving. Each delicious meat dish is served alongside a beautiful ensemble of traditional trimmings – carrots, parsnips and roast potatoes, and of course, the obligatory Yorkshire pudding.

And while the main components of a British inspired roast dinner have been fulfilled in this Sunday Night Roast, it would be folly, as a Brit, not to admit that there was in fact, one vital part missing: our beloved gravy. Born and raised in a country where gravy is more than just a condiment, I must confess that this experience would be enhanced even further with a drizzle of liquid comfort. Naturally, one might then ask, would this deter me from returning again? 100% no. In fact, we are already planning our next trip back (but maybe with a cheeky tub of Bisto gravy in hand).

Gaucho’s Sunday Night Roast is available from 6pm – 10pm every Sunday. 

Address: 5th Floor, LHT Tower, 31 Queen’s Road Central.
