REVIEW: Gaucho Electro Brunch, Broadgate

REVIEW: Gaucho Electro Brunch, Broadgate


WHAT? Every Saturday from 11am’til 4pm, there’s a party getting started at Gaucho. Unlimited (yes, unlimited) brunch dishes are brought out at a rate of knots as you attempt to conquer as many Bloody Marys as humanly possible in your two hour time slot – all to a background of impossibly cool house and electro.

The list of brunch dishes is long, and indulgent – so we’re just going to leave it here for you to marvel at:

MEDIALUNA Peanut butter dulce de leche

BRUNCH FRENCH TOAST Peanut butter dulce de leche

BEANS ON TOAST Spanish chorizo

FRIED PROVOLETA Caramelised onion chutney

STEAK & EGGS 100g Churrasco de cuadril with a fried egg



EGGS ROYALE Smoked salmon

BACON SANDWICH Smoked streaky bacon

CHORIPAN SANDWICH Chorizo sausage and chimichurri

SMASHED AVOCADO ON TOAST With or without crispy bacon bits OVEN BAKED CHORIZO SAUSAGE Plum tomato, egg and mushroom BANANA PANCAKES Maple syrup or Nutella

OVEN BAKED CHORIZO SAUSAGE Plum tomato, egg and mushroom

BANANA PANCAKES Maple syrup or Nutella

This being Gaucho, we’d advise starting with Argentinian steak and eggs – by far the superior item on this list, bar the ridiculously naughty peanut butter dulche de leche slathered on a hot buttered croissant (so good, we asked to take a pot home). The Gaucho Benedict with salt beef was pleasingly saline, though the avo toast tasted stale and disappointing. French toast won us over, again, smothered in that heavenly PB & dulche de leche spread whipped up in the Gaucho kitchen.

Drinks range from the stonkingly rich ‘Gaucho Bloody Mary’ (Stolichnaya Gold Vodka, tomato juice, chimichurri, citrus, Tabasco) to a refreshingly light Aperol Spritz – a bittersweet mix of Aperol and soda water topped up with Chandon Argentine sparkling wine. There’s Pilsener lager, too, and of course, some bubbles –  Domaine Chandon, to be precise. Non-boozy options include green apple, melon and mint juice, or an ‘Orange Zinger’ – orange, carrots and ginger root.

WHERE? These buzzy restaurants can be found in Broadgate, Canary, Piccadilly, Sloane, Smithfield, Tower Bridge, Birmingham, Leeds & Manchester.

HOW MUCH? £49.95 per person, inclusive of unlimited (one drink per person, at any one time, for two hours between 11am-4pm). And worth every penny.
