A little research about Argentinian cuisine and you will know that the main bulk of their diet is made up of beef. But at BoCHINche, they make sure there's something for everyone! (You got to trust me on this 'cos I don't eat beef but I was filled to the brim at the end)
I particularly like the ambience there - it's dimly lit and cozy, definitely makes for a great place to have some drinks with your friends and to unwind after a long day at work. You can choose between indoor seats for an intimate experience, al-fresco seats if you wish to have some quiet time with your friends, or even the bar seats to see the chefs and bartenders in action.
BoCHINche boasts a large selection of drinks - wine, cocktails, coffee, tea etc. One should not miss having a drink or two here as they serve pretty good cocktails that not only taste nice, but are visually pleasing too. I had the Mr Hendricks which consists of Hendrick’s gin, egg white, Japanese cucumber, lemon & mint. It was refreshing and the cucumber flavour was distinct.
Doesn't pig's head croquettes sound quite disgusting? But to my surprise, it tastes really good! In fact, it was one of my favourite dish that night! The croquettes were fried to a golden perfection and the filling of shredded pork was very flavourful. I thought that the quince sauce on the side didn't help too much in terms of taste, but a good drizzle of it helps make the croquettes less dry!
The Provoleta is one of the must-have here! Served in a hot pan, the provolone cheese is rich and chewy but not overpowering. The honey complements it very well, making it subtly sweet. It goes well with the house-baked bread or on its own. Best to eat it fast or it would start to harden.
