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.

El Cerdo is right in the middle of the "party street" of Kuala Lumpur. A very surprising find indeed in Malaysia, given the prevailing pro-Islamic political slant. This place claims to be the best pork restaurant and largely lived up to expectations. We had some...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'.
