Gaucho | DubaiLike0

Perfection is in the details, and that was our experience at Gaucho Dubai. From the moment we arrived and were escorted to the lift, to our first sip of their exquisite house white wine Torrontés which is a white Argentine wine grape variety, producing fresh, aromatic wines with moderate acidity, smooth texture and mouthfeel as well as distinctive peach and apricot aromas on the nose (only found in Argentina), we felt immediately at home (if our home was a super chic, fancy penthouse totally decked out in black & white). We were greeted by Mr. Vinoth Mudaliar, the assistant manager – with whom we became acquainted at the Gaucho UK branch in Sloan. It was so nice to see a familiar face! We enjoyed 2 glasses of wine in the upstairs bar, but after looking down at all of the amazing food coming out to the tables – we decided it was time to indulge ourselves! Peter was our server, and his extensive knowledge of the menu was thoroughly impressive. The meat! The Wine! The Argentinean culture! He explained everything to us and the menu came alive! Unlike some other establishments, where the wait staff rattle off the menu items like robots – at Gaucho they  genuinely want to give you an experience. We had a Delicious meal, Gaucho prides itself on ceviche, otherwise known as Argentine sashimi – or some would say Peruvian. The salmon ceviche is cured in citrus juice and served with diced avocado and palm hearts in a roasted pepper dressing. This is not a steakhouse it’s an Argentinean restaurant that ‘specializes in steaks’ and Gaucho makes sure that you walked out with that experience in mind! I only wish I could eat like this every day of the week! Many of the crew have been with the company for years. Managing partner Ross Butler knew exactly what he was doing when he put this team together at Gaucho Dubai! It took us 3.5 hours to finally decide to call it a night.

Our table looked like this:

2 Argentinian house wine

3 Empanadas ( beef, cheese and onion, chicken)

1 Proveleta which is a typical Argentinian dish with 48 hour dry aged Italian provolone slow grilled – if you like cheese opt for this dish!

1 300g Bife de Lomo ( Fillet)

1 Churrasco de chorizo ( Spiral cut sirloin marinated in 48 hours with garlic, parsley and olive oil)

Sides were mushrooms, sweet potato sticks and french fries

1 Salted Caramel Sauce cheesecake

A perfect place to unwind at the bar after business hours too!

  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
  • It was an exciting day at the ATM travel market yesterday in Dubai being interviewed on @instagramforbusiness on how I turned my passion into a successful career and on how my business works. I’ll be writing an article on the Q&A of the sessions too! I couldn’t take photos inside the hall but here is a throwback of the time I spent my week Cambodia 🇰🇭 and I’ve also written couple of articles and info on my time there on my site! Happy Monday! 😊
  • It’s the possibility of having all my dreams come true that makes my life so beautiful - Yet, it doesn’t mean that I don’t get to miss some certain moments like this one. In the middle of Laikipia - I left my heart ♥️
  • We’ll always find our way back to each other 💫
  • There is a sandstorm in Dubai at the moment, so I decided to look back at my photos from @constancehotels during my trip to Mauritius 🇲🇺Also, a few of you asked me about the weather, and how the forecast shows that it’s always raining in Mauritius... don’t look at that! The forecast was wrong all week! We had sunny days and clear skies up until the day I left ☀️ So my rule of thumb is: Don’t look at the forecast 😊
  • Last year, I did a little sailing through the Balkans from Montenegro - Have you been yet? It’s beautiful!!! ☀️
If you are planning a trip to there this summer, I’ve posted an itinerary list of things to do in Montenegro! Link in bio!
  • Summer is approaching and I can’t wait! Throwback on this Sunday to my last summer in Croatia! Have you planned your summer vacation yet?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past few days... it’s a good reminder on how I need to listen to my body. Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
  • Mauritius and all its beauty 🇲🇺☀️ @constancehotels
  • The hardest kind of resistance is when you’re resisting yourself. When your heart wants something and your brain prevents it. When you feel like sometimes you want to explode but you don’t. Its not always pretty but you keep going because, everything that is meant to be yours, will be yours. 
  • 6am wake up call 🇲🇺 @Constancehotels  #myconstancemoment
  • Good morning! It’s actually raining today but, here is the beautiful day I checked into @constancehotels Prince Maurice. I tried to aim for a grand entrance here 😊 Have a beautiful day everyone!
