Very nice atmosphere. Good quality of food and splendid service from all staff. I had the special seasonal dish of asparagus. Very nice. Taste almost the same as at home. Wine is good as well. House wines come by caraffe and are better than the regular cheap wines in this area.

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'.
