Argentinian steakhouses around Liverpool offer a unique experience
When you think of a steakhouse, probably the first thing to come to mind is an image of cowboys lassoing up cattle in the wild west of the USA. But cowboys go far beyond North America, and in Argentina, they are a major source of national pride. Known as gauchos, Argentinian cowboys are often described as independent, stoic men who are self-sufficient and stand against Europeanisation. Living off the beef from the cattle they hunted and drinking yerba mate for energy, these men were strong, effective and important for the regional communities. Today, it’s not uncommon to find Argentinian-style steakhouses that pay homage to the gauchos. These Liverpool steakhouses are known for their huge cuts of tender beef – sometimes even available as all you can eat – and their unique decor, usually with gaucho-inspired art and cowhide furnishings. Typically cooked over a charcoal flame, Argentine beef is usually served with chimichurri, a zesty sauce that greatly complements the flavour of the beef. If steak wasn’t your thing before, it definitely will be after dining at one of the many great Argentinian steakhouses in Liverpool.
