El Cerdo Restaurant at Kuala Lumpur

Restaurant along Changkat Bukit Bintang

El Cerdo KL has been a staple of Kuala Lumpur’s dining scene for almost a decade, serving a wide range of pork dishes from Europe, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Set within the popular nightlife district of Changkat Bukit Bintang, the award-winning restaurant offers a casual setting with wooden furnishings and warm lighting, as well as several pig-shaped sculptures, paintings, and ornaments. El Cerdo KL’s sister venture - El Cerdito - is located next door, where patrons can indulge in a wide range of alcoholic beverages and tapas after dinner.

While you may find a number of seafood, beef, and lamb dishes at El Cerdo KL, its signature dishes are definitely porcine in nature. Great for sharing between three to four diners, the German crispy knuckle is perfectly seasoned with herbs and tangy garlic, served with a side dish of creamy potato dumplings, tart sauerkraut, and a delicious mustard beer sauce.

El Cerdo KL’s most popular dish is cochinillo al estilo segoviano, which is a finely roast suckling pig that’s ‘butterflied’ and presented on a wooden serving board. Available in half and whole portions, the highlight when ordering this dish is the tradition of ‘cutting’ the meat with a plate followed by smashing said plate into a wooden bucket.

Other must-tries here include the seafood cataplana, pork shoulder steak served with jalapeno and smoked paprika sauce, and baked porky macaroni with deep-fried ham, mozzarella cheese, and tomato sauce. For dessert, we highly recommend the fluffy churros with dark chocolate dip and Spanish flourless chocolate cake served with homemade yogurt mousse and mixed nuts.

Every Sunday, El Cerdo’s Bubbylicious Brunch offers all-you-can-eat cold appetisers, pork dishes, pastas, desserts, and free-flow beverages between 12:00 and 14:30. Diners can enjoy sparkling wine, house red and white wines, beer, soft drinks, and chilled juices for RM148 while those who aren’t keen on alcohol only pay RM99 for free-flowing soft drinks and chilled juices.
