Me and my wife ate here last night. In a very vibrant Street with bars/restaurants next to it. The food was incredible, we were served bread with this spicy shredded pork to put on top. Was so nice, when they offered more we gladly accepted. Main meal, I had the Guinness ribs - amazing! Must have been 7 ribs with... More

The is the place to come for your porcine dining delights. The quality of the food is good and so is the attentive service. One of the highlights of this place is the suckling pig which you will be guided to "carve" up your little piggy and then have the plate broken a la Greek dining style. We opted for... More

Despite my title being only about the ribs, I must say the everything we got that night were a delight! For my tastebuds were singing in harmony while we savoured every mouthful of every dish. We started with the refreshing tomato and watermelon salad with goat's cheese, followed by 4 types mini sausages, tasty savoury oven baked ibérico ribs, spicy... More

Food is marinated to perfection, each dish is as awesome as the last. Refreshing watermelon salad and the mini sausages to start off. Both ribs; spicy baby back ribs & oven baked iberico ribs are perfect and salty (and not the sweet kind which i don't prefer). Delicious rum and raisin pancakes to end the night with. Simply great. 3rd... More

Entrance was welcoming and was greeted on arrival. After a 20 minute taxi ride to arrive based on the reviews, my standards were up there. Upon seating I ordered the platter and four mini sausages along with an iced tea. Bread with a nice dip was served and the food arrived promptly. The platter was disappointing. When you have jamons... More

Serves primarily pork dishes, this is one of the best restaurants one could be in Kl. Their dishes is exceptional and service is super good. Their weekend brunch is value of money, with an array of pork based delicacies served for their customer. You've got to try it to believe it!

We sat outside on their terrace which is in a busy tourist street with many restaurant (of which 5 from the same owner). It's a nice place to watch other people. Our waitress (from Myanmar) was absolutely great, provided good recommendations and was very attentive. We started with 12 oysters and some cold cuts to share, all was nice. Choices... More

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'.
