Bochinche @ Club Street - Indulge In Wet-aged Argentine Steaks and In-house Dry-aged Grain-fed Cuts.


Bochinche, located on Club Street, has always been known for its fine curation of different types of meats and cuts from Argentina, Australia, USA, and Europe. Its wet-aged Argentine steaks and in-house dry-aged Grain Fed cuts grilled using Asado techniques over the Jarrah wood-fired griller are particularly noteworthy. The Argentinian starters and sides here are exceptional as well. For a quick lunch experience, its Lunch Menu offers its signature wet-aged steaks with a choice of add-on sides or desserts at an affordable price.

Classic Provoleta 4/5

Canasta De Pan 4.5/5

Classic Provoleta ($24) is a traditional Argentinian melted provolone cheese, served hot from the BBQ or oven, with a variety of toppings. We had a bubbling hot provolone cheese in cast iron, served with fermented Medley Tomato and a drizzle of honey. To get the full experience of this dish, eat it hot with Canasta De Pan ($12), a board of housemade Rosemary Focaccia, and "Pan De Queso", a South American cheese roll. Both breads were delightful and airy, complementing the rich melted cheese.

Tropical “Leche De Tigre” Ceviche 5/5

Next, we had Tropical "Leche De Tigre" Ceviche ($24) featuring red snapper, dragon fruit, mango, papaya and pineapple tossed in for a refreshing fruity zest and zing. There were kaffir lime leaves mixed in as well, adding a layer of citrusy and earthy undertone.

Argentina Empanadas Hand Cut Beef and Grilled Organic Corn (2pc) 3.5/5

'Black Label' Ribeye 5/5

I tried the 250g 'Black Label' Ribeye ($35) for mains, featuring a grass-fed Buenos Aires steak, 28 Days Wet-Aged. Its great taste didn't just lie with its origin and the fact that it had been wet-aged for 28 days, but also with the skilful grilling on the wood fire to achieve that desired doneness. For an additional $10, you can either add on Hand-cut Beef and Grilled Organic Corn Argentina Empanadas (2pc) or Dessert. I had the Empanadas. The Grilled Organic Corn Empanadas was mouthwatering with aromatic creamy corn filling, contrasted with a flaky empanadas pastry.

Argentinian Doughnut 4.8/5

For desserts, Argentinian Doughnut ($19) was a joy. It is light, airy and delicious with butteriness and an eggy flavour. They were served warm with contrasting velvety vanilla ice cream and Dulce De Leche. The sprinkle of toasted hazelnut added a good nutty flavour and a textural crunch to complete the dish.
