Guess another round of fantastic, gastronomical experience at Gaucho Grill again. Apart from its vast fusion of Western and Italian food, you may also try their seafood selection like sole fish, surf & turf selections, spaghetti and lots more.As we were still undecided of where to grab our lunch on Friday afternoon, so I suggested trying the lunch set at the Argentinean restaurant, since it’s just a stone’s throw away from our working place So we each chose our favourite pick.

So we each chose our favourite pick. And we came out with quite a wholesome spread with chicken, fish and spaghetti dish, of course!
Each set came with a glass of Iced Lemon Tea and soup of the day apart from the main dish. You may also help yourself with the assortments of garden salad at the salad bar corner. The greens are as fresh as ever with varieties of dressing to choose from. Soup for that day was Onion with Mushroom. I couldn’t guess it as it looked brownish and more cloudy than the usual I have. So am bit skeptical in the first place, hehe. However, the soup did taste quite good. It’s a bit salty but came with mild sweetness from the onion slices, which were added in large quantity. But that had overpowered the mushroom taste. Soon, our main dishes had arrived. Grilled Sole Fish was the first one. Like its namesake, this flatfish is really flat. They are mostly found at the Atlantic Ocean and make quite a popular dish especially in Dutch culture. The fish meat was indeed sweet with a slight crispy skin on the outside, as it’s been grilled. It tasted just as good as by itself without much marinade. Or, you may pair it with the pickled cucumbers that came along with some grilled potatoes as well. The potatoes were very, very nice and aromatic for they are grilled with some herbs. Good one! Next would be the mouth watering Grilled Chicken Thigh. With some simple but artistic garnishment, it was enough to arouse you appetite. The chicken meat itself was tender and piquant, albeit it had been roasted thoroughly. The outer skin was very crispy and not oily, which at one point, reminded me of German Pork Knuckle, hehe.. Zesty! Last but not least was the Seafood Marinara Spaghetti. It came in a huge portion with generous assorted seafood such as calamari rings, prawns, mussels and tomatoes slices. The prawns were especially fresh and succulent, they were very big too! ^^ As for the calamari and mussels, they were pretty tangy and blends in well with the tomato based sauce. Such a zippy dish to complete our scrumptious lunch! Delicioso!
