Bochinche – Celebration of Argentinian Food

[Moved to a new location since 16 July 2016 - Full Details below]

Bochinche, an Argentinian theme concept deli and restaurant. A collaboration between Spa Esprit Group with Argentinian born Chef Diego Jacquet. It seems that Cynthia Chua and her team are the people with the golden touch when it comes to new F&B concepts in the market.

Bochinche Entrance

Bochinche is located in the same building as Common Man Coffee Roaster, which is also owned by Spa Esprit Group. Once you entered the second floor, you will be welcomed with huge paper carcases as if you are entering a butcheries. Of course no major scale butchering happen here, instead you will see the range of Argentinian products

Our brunch stated with Watermelon Salad ($13). Our favourite cheese was on it. Beautiful Mozzarella with extra chilled watermelon cubes are just refreshing. The sliced tomato, micro herbs and toasted seeds provided the contrasting texture and flavours to the dish. Yum Yum, good start.

Chimichurri Burger V2.0 ($29) and Bife Ancho Rib Eye Steak ($55 for 300 gram) are our main meal. Together with Provenzal Chips ($10) on the side and Béarnaise sauce ($5).

Cheers !!

Chimichurri is a common sauce use in Argentina to marinate or to accompany the meat. Made of finely chopped parsley, garlic, olive oil, oregano and white vinegar. Normally each family will have their own family recipe for this sauce and each one will tell you that theirs are the best.

Chimichurri Burger V2.0

This sauce paired well with the burger as the acidity and herbs balance the fats in the meat. The patty is tender and juicy. The deep orange colour of the yolk just scream BITE ME!!! However, watch out for the extra pungent provolone cheese which did not bode well with us.

The beef from the Rib Eye originated grass fed cattle in Buenos Aires, hand selected by Chef Diego. Our first encounter with Argentinian beef was a memorable experience, so we have no doubt this one will be the same. It is nicely charred, cooked to medium rare. It has a nice marbling to it, tender and succulent. I say it is comparable any US or Australian grass fed beef.

The provenzal chips was well seasoned and a good pairing for the steak. Crispy on the outside, yet moist inside. It is definitely better than normal fries. It is also good as a beer snack.

Service was friendly, attentive and have a good understanding on the menu.

Bench Seating Chef's Table

The décor of this place is very casual, whimsical using solid wood as the main theme here. Indoor and outdoor seating are available, my suggestion is that watch out for what's written in the back of the seat cover and have a good laugh. For the indoor seating, Bochinche have two long bench seating beside the usual dining tables. On one side you can see the chefs at work, while on the other side, the bartender will provide the entertainment during your dining.

Overall, our dining experience in Bochinche was a positive one. The food, service and atmosphere is just dandy. We really look forward to our next visit here and try our their dinner menu. Salud!!! Cheers!!!

Thank you The Silver Chef for the recommendation.
