When it comes to brunch, Gaucho stands out – and not just because you can eat as much of their delicious food as you like.
Back in 2016, Gaucho launched the city’s first bottomless brunch. They started a trend, but while others have joined the fray, nothing has ever compared to their Electro Brunch. The reason is simple – they have the trifecta. Unlimited food, unlimited drinks and a live DJ playing back to back hits every Saturday – all for £45 per person.
So what can you expect? Well, the menu is surprisingly diverse and it takes its cue from their a la carte offering. You’ll get the same quality, and in some cases even the same dishes, but here it’s absolutely unlimited – order as many as you want over a belly-bursting two hours.
And if you’re thinking that you’d struggle to eat more than one, think again – the average is about four per person. “It depends on the group size really. We have couples who come in for a relaxed two hours and eat maybe six to eight dishes between them, but then we have larger groups, and then sometimes people can eat up to 15 dishes each,” General Manager Amy Boucher told us.
Their most popular dish is (unsurprisingly) the Steak and Eggs. It’s a 100-gram churrasco de cuadril, which is basically Argentinean rump marinated in garlic, parsley and olive oil, and it’s cooked to order, just the way you like it – although Senior Sous Chef Lee Barron says it’s best served pink. Wolf it down with a fried egg before you move on to the next dish.
They have their own take on Eggs Benedict on the bottomless brunch menu too. Here it’s made with salt beef, slow cooked with cream, horseradish and just a little bit of thyme. It’s all blitzed up and served on a muffin with Hollandaise sauce and a poached egg – you can even get a gluten-free muffin if you like.
In fact, they’ll go all out to cater for any dietary requirements. Everything’s made to order, so they can sub in veggie or gluten-free alternatives if you want them to and they’ve even been known to whip up something completely new for those oh-so demanding diners.
Mind you, that’s not to say that veggies don’t have options on the menu. They’ve got everything from Smashed Avocado on Toast to Banana Pancakes with maple syrup and Eggs Florentine with wilted spinach, so you’ll have plenty of choice, even if you’re forgoing their famous steaks.
The real star of the show though is their traditional Fried Provoleta. Lee told us why it’s one of his personal favourites, “It’s an aged Provolone cheese. We make an egg wash with the same churrasco marinade we use on the steaks and give it a double crumb, then fry it and serve it with onion chutney.”
Alongside the food, which is obviously a massive perk of Gaucho’s Electro Brunch, you’ll also get unlimited drinks. They have their own twist of a Bloody Mary, made with Stolichnaya Gold Vodka, tomato juice, chimichurri, citrus and Tabasco, or you can go for something simple like a Rubia Pilsener Lager, an Aperol Spritz or a glass of Domaine Chandon bubbly.
They’re the same quality drinks you’ll find on the evening menu, but they keep ’em coming – and because this is Gaucho, you can expect the usual attentive service, so your glass will never be empty for long… unless you want it to be, in which case, they have a juice bar so you can quench your thirst without overdoing it.
And the cherry on the top? The DJs. They change on a weekly basis, and you’ll see some familiar faces, with regulars coming over from the likes of Space, Revolución de Cuba and The Alchemist. The music changes with the crowds, ranging from 90s r&b to house and old school tunes – but one thing’s for sure, it always creates an incredible atmosphere for your brunch.
