Celebrated my wife's birthday there, we had the Grilled Pork Shoulder Steak (Really awesome and tender pork) and Guinness Ribs Make sure you get a reservation~! In the weekends (Fri-Sun), they have 2 sessions in the evenings; 6.30pm - 8pm, and 8.30pm onwards.

My husband and I usually avoid places that require reservations, and one that only has two time slots would usually just make us roll our eyes and move on. I'm glad we gave it a try-- we've been several times in the past few months....More

We visited before and came back for the pork knuckle. There were only 2 of us, but food for at least 3 people. We couldn't finish it all. The knuckle came with 3 sides and bread. Yum! Very good service and food.

Description
Backed by 40 years of experience in various fine dining kitchens around the globe, Werner Kuhn set up El Cerdo KL, in the year 2005. The restaurant is well known to many as the No. 1 European style Pork Specialty eatery in Kuala Lumpur, focusing on traditional recipes. Having gathered many accolades for its outstanding food and service quality, the most popular item is "The Cochinillo Segoviano", a Spanish style roasted suckling pig dish that is served with the obligatory Plate Cutting Ceremony. Our slogan shouts out loud 'Nose To Tail Eating'.
