About
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'.

Just had a lovely birthday dinner celebration with my boy & my man! The sausage platter was so juicy and grilled to perfection. My BBQ soft bone ribs was so flavourful and I almost wanted to lick the whole plate clean. We ordered Fruity red...Sangria and really enjoyed it. Birthday boy got a complimentary Basque burnt cheesecake with 2 margarita and 1 orange juice on the side. We didn't expect such a generous dessert and thanks El Cerdo for a wonderful service. We will be back for more. Gracias!More

Zar Zar, server, was excellent for service, knowledge and making our experience memorable. Food selection and Sangria was very good tapas, and main suckling pig. Food prepared well and I enjoyed the ‘imported’ specialty items like chorizo and suckling pig. Special dessert (Warrens) was an...excellent end to an enjoyable meal. Anniversary surprise was great.

I really wanna eat a good pasta for our Anniversary day and it needed to be a quick one as it was the last day of Lockdown the country after epidemic spread out. We ordered signature pasta serve with pork cheek fillet and braised 3...layer pork pasta. The food was good and testy as always. Before we headed back home, they gave us the little surprise gift for our Anniversary. We loved it. Noted: beer and mocktail are also good to try. Ps. The Spanish crispy piglet is good too but on that night we had running out of time. So we didn’t order it- no picture for that.More
