For those who speak Spanish, perhaps the name El Cerdo will sound a bit blunt and strong. I personally dont see the marketing behind it but, again, is just a name and to be honest, it will be hard to forget. Mission accomplished. Now, to...More

Best suckling pig I have ever eaten. The pork is so tender that you can cut it with a plate (a plate will be given to cut the pork). Friendly staff and great service.

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'.
