Black Sheep Restaurants have opened their latest venture in the city with Buenos Aires Polo Club. The Argentinian steakhouse is inspired by the South American country’s love of polo and its world famous grilling culture. The menu features signature beef cuts sourced from Argentina’s open range cattle station, General Pico, where cattle are allowed to graze freely under the watchful eyes of the renowned gauchos. A wine cellar comprised of exclusively Argentinian wines adds to the authentic Buenos Aires feel.

Family recipe book
A handy recipe book in both Tagalog and English has been launched in Hong Kong. Written by a Singapore-based expat, Frog Michaels, A Helping Hand cleverly displays all recipes in both English and Tagalog. “While most helpers across Asia have learnt some English, descriptions such as “blind bake”, “braise”, “blanche” and “bain-marie” leave a lot of room for confusion,” she says. Following a couple of hilarious incidents with her own helper (such as serving the breakfast eggs with baking powder rather than bacon), Michaels has put together a collection of classic, uncomplicated European and Asian dishes, complete with serving suggestions and tips and remedies to give hard-working helpers a heads up. Copies of the book are available on blondemedia.asia
