Sleek, sexy and glamorous immediately comes to mind when you set foot into the achingly cool venue at Gaucho, the DIFC’s award-winning Argentinean restaurant. The décor of cattle hide walls, blended flawlessly with opulent black and white leather furniture, mirror panels and crystal chandeliers. The food is as impressive as the ambience. The crab causita (accompanied with avocado, red onion, spiced tomato sauce and potato) and the chorizo sausage are the best of the vast array of appetisers on offer. For the main, the server brings you a cutting board and explains each different cut of steak in detail, even going as far as the best way to cook each one. Opt for the restaurant’s specialty – the churrasco de chorizo, a cut of sirloin that is marinated in garlic, parsley and olive oil with a side of humitas; sweet corn, onion, pumpkin, mozzarella and basil served in corn husks. For dessert, there is no better way to go than the dulce de leche cheesecake. However, if chocolate is more your thing, then the chocolate and hazelnut truffles are an unparalleled treat for that chocoholic palate.
