Gaucho is a nationwide chain of Argentine grill restaurants. All of the restaurants
in the chain have the same menu, but some of the restaurants in the chain
do not have a Kashrut certificate. Verify the status of the Kashrut when
you make your reservation.
El Gaucho specializes in meat dishes. The meat is imported from South America and then put through a special aging process that tenderizes it and increases its tastiness and juiciness. Your meat is prepared fresh by the El-Gaucho grill chef when you make your order. The grill chef is brought specially to Israel from Argentina.
At El Gaucho you order your meal by weight. Meat portions range from 250 to 350 grams. The El Gaucho menu contains pictures of the foods so you can get your order right the first time.
It is recommended that you order a small first course to temper your appetite while your meat is being prepared.
Your meal is served at your table on an individual mini grill with simmering coals. This keeps your food warm while preserving the special grilled flavor of the meat. Eat your meat as they do in South America, on a ?Pariza,? which is a wooden platter.
Although the meat is the calling card of this restaurant, fish and vegetable dishes are also available.
