Argentine chef Diego Jacquet – formerly of world-renowned El Bulli, and now the owner of two establishments in London (Casa Malevo and Zoilo) – teams up with Spa Esprit Group to school local diners on the myriad flavours of his homeland.
BoCHINche’s refreshed lunch menu is laden not only with carnivorous fare like sbife angosto (sirloin, $65/400g) and beef and bone marrow burger ($27). Seafood also gets its share of the spotlight in a sea bass ceviche with onion, radishes and preserved lemon ($18), and crab on toast with humita norteña (a white sauce), marjoram and pickled turnips ($18). Round up your meal with torched mango, rice pudding, and lime and coconut sorbet ($15). If you'd rather let chef Jacquet do the work, choose from the prix fixe menu of two or three courses ($25 and $29, respectively).
The restaurant also offers a selection of Argentinean wines, and stars notable Latin American elements like chimichurri and Venezuelan rum in its cocktails.
