Papa Joe – Meat lovers’ Delight

Argentinians are dead passionate about two things: their football and their steak, and in both, they yield second to none. So, it is welcome news that Papa Joe has recently opened at Knutsford Terrace, one of the city’s better-known dining hubs, to serve authentic Argentinian cuisine focusing on quality steaks plus selected Mexican and Brazilian dishes.

Papa Joe’s executive chef and co-founder Raaj Gurung and his founding partner Chit Gurung are both Nepalese natives with substantial restaurant experience, with Raaj acquiring his steak-cooking skills from working at Hong Kong’s first Argentinian steakhouse, among other upscale outlets.

The spacious restaurant features a dining area and a lounge, its décor of red-brick walls and artworks is contemporary and appropriately earthy. In addition to its featured food, Papa Joe offers a wide selection of cocktails, beers and wines as well as live lounge music after dinner.

We sampled several of Papa Joe’s signature dishes. They include Freshly Made Chicken Taco – mango salsa, fresh avocado & smokey jalapeno tamarind sauce ($48each); Sea Bass Steak – a grilled 200-gramme sea bass steak, Rainbow Vegetables & Fennel Root Stew and Light Puttanesca Sauce ($298); Capellini Pasta & Crab in Parmesan Cheese Sauce and Caviar($158); and Sizzling Chicken Fajitas served with tortilla bread, sour cream and guacamole ($168). For steak we chose the excellent Cuto Beef Tenderloin – Argentinian Grass Fed Free Range Premium Chilled Cuto Beef Tenderloin 250 gramme ($338). The dessert was a generously portioned Crepes Kahlua Mascarpone ($78).

Papa Joe serves hearty, delicious Latin American food at reasonable prices. It’s the perfect venue for a relaxed and fun meal after a long day of shopping or sightseeing. Give it a try!
