First Time in El Cerdo

Note: Tidak Ditanggung halal

Way back 2 months ago during a dinner break from Nokia IAC, David Lai, Aaron, Thomas, Nadia and I decided to dine in El Cerdo in Changkat Bukit Bintang. I follow them because I've never been there before and I read a lot about great pork dishes that this restaurant serves.

The settings.

The house's specialty.

My complimentary soup. I think it's potato leek soup.

David did all the ordering because he's the regular here. We didn't make a reservation so we have to be fast with our meal hence no roast whole piglet for us. Remember to make reservation if you want to eat here because it's almost always full.

Delicious prawn spaghetti.

The prawn is so fresh and succulent. The sauce also goes very well with it.

Rating: 4/5

Grilled pork loin with rice.

The grilled pork loin is very juicy and tender. I can eat a lot of it without feeling jelak.

Rating: 4/5

Duck fettuccine.

The chef here is also very good in cooking duck. It's not bad.

Rating: 3.5/5

Pork Ribs

The main attraction of the dinner, honey roasted pork ribs. Words just can't describe how delicious this dish is, you have to try it to know it.

Rating: 4.5/5

It's not on the menu.

Thanks to David who is a regular here, he ordered Rum n Raisin Pancakes which is not listed on the menu. This dessert is yummy. Cold Rum n Raisin ice-cream eaten with warm and fluffy pancakes, is a good match. It's a must for dessert.

Rating: 4.5/5

My complimentary after meal cocktail that helps digestion.

the prawn spaghetti looks really good... wat has it gotta do with with pigs ? :p

Simon Seow said...

blurry: well, eat it once in a blue moon is not that overdoing. It's great food. I still want to go back and try the roasted piglet. Anyone want to join?

sc: don't forget to invite me too, I got no kaki to help to devour the roasted piglet.

simon: yeah you should. lol.

dlt2: we wanted to but the place was fully booked and we're just temporary borrowing someone else table so we have to finish fast.

ling: it has nothing to do with pig, just that it happens to be there kekeke. I didn't say El Cerdo only sells pig did I?
