Phuket’s First South American Steakhouse
Jungceylon in Patong continues to pack them in with their buzzing restaurant row. One of the newer offerings is the Churassco Steak House which opened in January of this year.
Churrasco Phuket Steakhouse is located on ‘Restaurant Row’ in Phuket’s landmark Jungceylon Mall in Patong. With its South American theme, the restaurant features a wide variety of fine imported Wagyu and Black Angus steaks, such as classic Tenderloin, Ribeye, Striploin, Flank & T-Bone/Porterhouse cuts – all at affordable prices.
The signature house specialities however are a Brazilian-style ‘Picanha’ 500-day grainfed Wagyu Sirloin, and a very special cut called ‘Solomillo de Ternera’, which is a 500-day grainfed Top-Tender Wagyu Steak cut against the grain. Steaks are available in several sizes, up to half a kilo each, and are slow char grilled.
Churrasco Phuket Steakhouse imports all its beef ‘deep-chilled’, never frozen. Once accepted at the restaurant, all steaks are further aged in-house in a temperature-controlled environment, then grilled a-la-minute.
The menu also features several fiery grill items, such as pork chops, lamb rumpsteaks, mixed meat skewers, and a variety of home-made artisan sausages. Starters comprise of several soups – including a signature Gazpacho Andaluz – and a variety of hearty salads. To round it all off, a small gourmet beef section offers a Wagyu Beef Cheek dish slow-cooked in a red wine sauce, an Argentinian Beef Stew, and a classic Chili Con Carne.
The extensive drinks list includes a full choice of Argentinian, Chilenian and Spanish wines, along with some of Phuket’s best Latino Cocktails, and a prime selection of premier Russian Vodkas – including the famous Beluga & Imperia brands.
Churrasco Phuket has made a name for itself on Tripadvisor and several restaurant blogs as the place to go to in Phuket for top-of-the-line steaks at some of the best prices anywhere in Phuket. Don’t miss it.
