El Gauco Steakhouse

Firstly, do NOT look at the prices or you’ll have a heart attack. It’s expensive so don’t even think about it if you’re on a budget. I got very lucky and was shouted 🙂

Prices aside…one of the best steakhouses I’ve ever been to. My lamb shanks with mashed potatoes were absolutely perfect in every way. The lamb was moist and tasty and the mash was exceptional. My dining partner had a 500g New York sirloin that was a sight to behold. All washed down with an Argentinean red.

There was no room for dessert but everyone gets a few free caramel vodka shots from the flamboyant maitre d.

The interior is warm andinviting with exposed brick , historical photos and racks of red wine everywhere.

If you’ve got a hankering for steak in Hanoi and you’ve got the bankroll, this is the place.









That last photo is the night cap Cedric and I had. A French yellow prune liqueur from..1939 !
