El Cerdo @Changkat Bukit Bintang
My debut post on Spanish cuisine is at El Cerdo, Changkat Bukit Bintang. This is the place where pork is their main highlights. So sorry to my Muslim friends, what you about to see later of this post is all about pig. If you feel offended, please do skip my current post.
For your information, my information on the name of the dish may not be accurate because it was pre-order by my colleagues. If you do know the exact name, please do kindly inform me. Thank you in advance.
|Nose to Tail Eating - which means they are serving the pork meat from the pig's nose right to its tail. I am not kidding because their menu really covers every part of a pig.|
|Illy Coffee - Irish Coffee|
|Carnitas de Cerdo|
Overall: 4/5 - Very delicious and I like the way they prepare them.
Overall: 3/5 - This is very unique way to prepare the pork meat. Slightly sourish and sweetness in it. It just opened up your appetite.
|Cochinillo Asado (Head)|
|Cochinillo Asado (Tail) @RM215++|
Overall: 4/5 - This is the highlight or so called signature dish at El Cerdo. It is a roasted suckling pig. Suckling pig grown up in their mother's milk and never let it run freely for less than a month before it is served in a plate in front of you like this. May sound kind of cruel by it has been everyone's favorite not just our Chinese culture by the Western as well. Their skin is so delicious and crispy which can be cut by a normal kitchen plate which you will see in a demonstration below by my colleague.
|Yes, today is my colleague's birthday and El Cerdo prepared this special dessert called Werner's Special|
Overall: 4/5 - Arghhh...so tasty but the portion is just too small. :(
|Let's have a final shot on my crazy colleagues.|
|El Cerdo - A name worth to remember. You will always walk out this restaurant with a memory that you will never forget for the rest of your life.|
Last but not least, I will highly recommend for big groups to come to this great restaurant. Not really suitable for couples because the restaurant is quite noisy. Pre-booking is highly encouraged to avoid disappointment. If possible, order your desired food in advance as well because some of their signature dishes requires long hours to prepare.
Parking is a nightmare here so you have no choice to park farawy and make a walk to the restaurant. It is a paid parking no matter where you park because there will be certainly some locals collecting parking from you. The parking fee is vary between RM6 - RM20. You are advised to just pay them or else anything will surely happened to your vehicle. By the way, this is another example of a great restaurant to have a break in between their business hours.
Food Serving Speed: Slow
Will I Revisit?: Yes, for group party.
