Gaucho Grill @ Chulan Square, Jalan Raja Chulan

Saturday, May 9, 2009

There are two things Argentineans are proud of – their football players and their succulent beef. It is believe that many steak lovers love this place. Gaucho Grill, The restaurant at the Golden Triangle along Jalan Raja Chulan in Kuala Lumpur is hard to miss with its big black life- size dummy of a cow at the entrance. Their chef, Chef Kamaruddin explained that Argentina is actually the 2nd largest consumer of beef in the world, just after US. And vegetable is not exactly popular; the South Americans love their meat. Gaucho Grill imports all their meat from herds raised by gauchos (cowboys) of Argentina.
The décor is a casual ambience with lots of timber and it is easy to settle into. Think of it as a surrogate ranch with a charcoal grill for a shrine. There’s Latin flavored music so deep in the background that you might not even notice it. Other than that, a complementing the steaks are a salad bar (should try the eggplants, yummy) and free flow of onion soup (oklar).
Firstly, Tapas, sautéed prawns with garlic, chili, parsley and dress up with olive oil, crispy almond calamari with lemon, then the sautéed mussel with basil, garlic & tomato……MMMmmmmmMMm…all are so tasty…
For kids’ meal, they always recommend the Chicken Nugget and Chips, and looking at the picture, you must be wondering this nugget is so BIG and taste wise is ok oklar…to kids, it’s appetizing.
Next, Gamberoni, a pasta dish, linguine aglio alio garnished with chili flakes and topped with prawns & mussel and grill king prawn. Nice actually…………
After that, Roasted Chicken Breast, served with swiss mushroom, white mushroom sauce & canelinni beans salad. Taste wise, it’s nice but the chicken meat is very dry and gives patron a difficult time to swallow it. Maybe, they are not good with chicken…
Pescado, US Cod Grilled, lemon paprika rubbed, and served asparagus & scallop. The cod fish is amazing, texture and taste are both equally impression.
The main event, Grilled Wagyu Rib-Eye (RM110++), served with roasted potato, aragula & cherry tomato and rosemary butter drop on top of the Rib-Eye. The texture is very tender, and every bite size is juicy and tangy. No doubt they are good with their steak.
Lastly, Surf and Turf, grilled striploin with pepper gravy and comes with a half lobster with mushroom cream sauce on melted cheese, jacket potato, tossed enoki and edarmame beans. The striploin is marvelous, succulent, moist and delicious. Then the lobster is also taste great. Must try….
Overall, a nice ambiance with nice steaks. So don’t wait and go pay a visit, however, quite a pricey place (maybe due to the place is located in the Golden triangle).
