GAUCHO: Steak-World Royalty

The Dubai branch of Argentinian steakhouse Gaucho is tucked away in DIFC in a beautiful unflustered spot. Inside, everything is pristine.

This prestigious UK brand serves an exceptional quality of beef, excels at infusing traditional Argentinian style with cutting edge South American influences, in a stunning atmosphere for an ideal timeout amidst the frenzy of city life.

Swiftly after arriving and being seated, “Zola” (probably the finest and most attentive waiter I’ve met in Dubai) arrives with a wooden board topped with slabs of uncooked ‘display’ steak, and delivers a podcast-worthy description of the different Argentinian cuts on offer.

The steaks were dazzling: The Ancho Ribeye was flavoursome, delicately marbled throughout for superb, full-bodied flavor with the meat juices flowing readily over the plate at the press of a fork. The Churrasco De Lomo, meanwhile, was enviably tender, heavenly slathered in quantities of garlic and olive oil.

One of my favorite steak sides on that night had to be the Humita Sateña. Gaucho puts their own unique twist on this classic dish, serving it in a corn husk with sweetcorn and mozzarella.

Desserts, too, were outstanding; with the highlight being the Banana and Coconut Mess, garnished with a splodge of sticky meringues, was sweet and decadent.

With waiters like Zola frequently swooping in to top up wine and unmatched experience; Gaucho’s still and will forever be steak-world royalty.
