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’ve been on the road a lot in Lebanon which has been an adventure on its own! The Infiniti Q30 2.0 has the navigation system with updated maps of Lebanon which made it easier to find my way around. It’s things like this I love the most about returning back here. Endless road trips with friends and despite Lebanon being so small, the adventures are endless! #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Home sweet home ♥️ Spent the weekend dancing the night away and at the beach during the day!
How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!
Lebanon is filled and surrounded with beautiful nature. 🇱🇧
Had an incredible day exploring Lebanon with @ramimansourr @mikhaelbitar @sarahdibrahim @abbas_kalel
  • Lebanon’s morning activities are filled with daily road trips across the mountains and the coast with close friends. Stopping by historical landmarks and eating the best zaatar in small villages. It also helps when your #infiniti car has BOSE sound-system 😊
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🇱🇧♥️ #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Good morning from home in Lebanon in Beit Douma. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in Lebanon!!! Have you ever been?

I’ve added an article on a guide to 9 guesthouses in Lebanon, you can click the link in my bio.
  • There really isn’t any better way to sail across Madeira Island than with Pedro and his gang! @rotadoscetaceos2016 We saw whales and swam with wild dolphins!!!! We jumped in the (freezing) Atlantic sea and went diving and discovered the most beautiful island 🌴 Now it’s your turn to go!
  • A beautiful slow morning in Madeira 🌴
Isn’t it beautiful?
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything.
  • It was sunny and we were heading to the pool in Lisbon when all of a sudden a little rain cloud passed and so decided to just walk out and get some pastel de nata 😊
  • Today, my mind is like a laptop set up. 
I have 20 tabs open, 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Dreaming of going back to Madeira 🌴
  • Madeira Island is home to Europe's tallest sea cliff- more than 1,900 feet above sea level. The Madeira Archipelago is located in the Atlantic Ocean, in the African plate. 
Before my trip to Madeira, some people told me I only need 3-4 days to tour the island. It’s far from the truth and I’m glad I didn’t listen to them! It’s been a week here and there is still so much I feel I haven’t explored yet!! Would you visit Madeira Island? 🇵🇹
