El Gaucho Riga goes world class under El Gaucho Global
Steak connoisseurs and lovers of fine food, rejoice. Riga will soon have its world-class Argentinian steakhouse. El Gaucho Riga reopens soon under new management by El Gaucho Global, the parent company which founded and operated 20 El Gaucho restaurants worldwide in Vietnam, Thailand, Hongkong, Philippines, Czech Republic, Slovakia, etc.

In all these countries, El Gaucho has made its name with one thing: superior beef, expertly grilled to let the quality shine through. Consistent with outlets in other countries, the steaks are the finest USDA-certified beef, sourced exclusively from the US by El Gaucho and carefully aged in-house. The wine cellar brings the best from around the world, including Argentinian Malbec and the restaurant’s own El Caramel frozen vodka. These are presented with the five-star service, interiors, and atmosphere that have made El Gaucho the place for steak around Asia, Prague, and Germany.

“We are excited for Riga to experience the best of El Gaucho,” says David Timm, the company’s Head of Operations. “Customers are our passion, and we cannot wait to serve Riga.” Timm opened the first El Gaucho in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, in 2011, assisting founder Dany Himi, his father. The family now directly manages all outlets worldwide.

Watch for the opening date and special events, which will be announced soon. Please follow elgaucho_riga on Facebook and Instagram for details. El Gaucho Riga is located at Vajnu iela 19, Centra Rajons, 0037 125 488 878.
