I am a huge fan of  Black Sheep group, they never disappoints.  They newest venture specializes in Argentinian steaks is located in Central, right inside LKF tower, taking over on 7th floor where former Boqueria was.

I really really really really enjoyed the Wood Smoked Bacon, it was a big fat strip of  pork belly rubbed with their secret spiced and char grilled.  The meat melted in my mouth and it was simply heavenly.

Moving onto the mains, which was the main highlight of course.  Once the 12 Ounce Ribeye approached out table, we knew we had to order another portion.  We liked our steak medium rare and it is exactly that we got.  All steaks are grilled on the parilla grill, the exterior is beautifully charred and of course it was still as juicy as ever on the inside.  However  the second portion arrive just 10 minutes later and it was nowhere near the standard of the first plate.   The steak was overdone with salt,  too salty to even finish it and it was also over cooked.  Worth the mention was the braised red onion who my friend was fighting us for, he said it was his best onion ever.

We were all given our unique steak knife, or you could simply share.  The knives are a collections of the owner, if you are a regular you may put away the one you prefer and can use it everytime you come back.  I really like the whole unique steak knife concept, makes the whole dining experience lot more personal.

OTHER MEATS

Mixed Grill – 6/10

Personally I wouldn’t order a mixed grill at a steakhouse but a friend of us felt adventurous and we all did not mind.  The lamb chop was truly amazing, even the bone itself was flavorsome. The outside was blackened by the grill yet the inside was perfectly pink and juicy.  We were all fighting for this lamb chop, on the other hand the chorizo and sausages wasn’t too popular.

What I loved about Buenos Aires Polo Club  is not only the steaks are amazing yet the sides were just as marvelous as the steaks.  It came in a good size to share and the chips were totally the bomb.

DESSERT

Roasted Pineapple – 8/10

As it was our lovely friend’s birthday, it was a must to get her a dessert.  I was recommended into trying the Roasted Pineapple  which was supposed to be amazing. Well.. it loved up to its expectations.  The pineapple was roasted on the outside, the pineapple meat itself was slightly warm, juicy and so sweet.  I really enjoyed the dessert especially with a scoop of ice cream on top.

Buenos Aires Polo Club is definately one of the best steakhouse in Hong Kong, serving some prime steak like the chateaubriand which is a thick cut of the tenderloin fillet.  Not many places does this cut and certainly not for such a reasonable price.  I enjoyed every bite I had at Buenos Aires Polo Club without ripping a hole in my wallet.  The vibe was classy yet not pretentious.  The service here was fantastic, upon my second time visit we were given free shots and mints and even told us to come back for happy hour next time.  Seriously if you want some real steak time, here is the place to come, you won’t go home feeling depressed.

Would I go back again? Yes
