REVIEWED: Gaucho gets the party started with its vibey bottomless brunches
| 6th February 2019
It’s hard not to get a little ranchy when you’re discussing Gaucho. I think it’s all the cowhide and fabulous waiting outfits with the tool kits that look like they could lasso and brand cattle before you can say bottomless brunch.
So, saddle up if you enjoy brunch and get down to the eatery off St Mary’s Street for a brunch that’s rocking.
In fact, when we went there it was super busy, with a DJ getting everyone in a playful vibe for a buzzing atmosphere where you can choose from the Electro Brunch Feast at £49.95 pp or the Premium one for a tenner more.
It’s all you can eat from nine savoury dishes with Cinnamon Churros for afters (worth the trip alone for the fabulous dulce de leche dipping sauce).
Steak and eggs were fabulous, though technically one egg, and what you would expect from this master steak restaurant, nice and pink with a tang of Churrasco de cuadril that they are famed for. Gaucho Benedict is a great take on the traditional egg dish, but with salt beef, that surprised me by really working.
A baked provoleta, was oniony and gorgeous and hit the spot as did avocado toast. By then we were full to busting but you can also tuck into smoked salmon, bacon and sausages, if you have the room.
You have a window of two hours to drink the restaurant dry with a choice of Bloody or Jim’s Mary, nicely peppery and what the doctored ordered, lager and sparkling wine. For a tenner more, you also have the option of porn star or espresso martini as well as a sparkling rose.
Everyone was having a fun time and there was no keeping any of the drinks back, as people brunched in style.
In fact, Gaucho must be one of the best brunch spots in town.
