El Quincho has brought a buzz to Christchurch since its inception back in 2017. And for the few among us who don’t know, the vibrant restaurant serves delicious Argentinian BBQ food cooked on a unique woodfire BBQ grill.
The 5-star reviewed eatery is housed in Riverside Market. Plus, it opens seven days a week. Without leaving Christchurch, you’ll feel transported to Argentina through taste. The food is cooked slowly with care on a top-quality grill that can been seen from your seat. Certainly, the perfect combination of lunch or dinner with a few cheeky drinks.
Particularly, the restaurant focuses on authentic wood-fire meat dishes such as lunch favourite Quincho Parillada ($59) consisting of a variety of wood fire-grilled meats and chips and Pork Belly ($23). Meanwhile, meat lovers will adore the Tomahawk ($60) with 600gr of premium beef and Beef Ribeye ($36) at dinner time.
Other menu highlights include the Lomito ($18) sandwich, exclusive burgers, homemade Empanadas ($8), the vegetarian Provoleta ($34) cheese with wild potatoes and much more. Be sure to pair your meal with fine Argentina wine, beers or some traditional cocktails like the Cuba Libre ($13) with golden rum.
