El Cerdo

Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Spanish -

WHY GO

Dine on swine and wine at the Span­ish-in­spired El Cerdo, which has been keep­ing din­ers happy for over a decade at its street­front lo­ca­tion on bustling Changkat Bukit Bin­tang.

TATLER TIPS

Din­ers come here for the con­sis­tency of its “nose-to-tail” cuts of ev­ery­thing porky. Apart from Span­ish spe­cial­i­ties, Aus­trian dishes such as schnitzel and Ger­man pork knuckle com­plete the menu.

Two stand­outs on the pork-cen­tric menu are the oven­roasted Iberico spare ribs and pork knuckle. While the rib meat is scant, its but­tery flavour is de­li­cious. The knuckle, mean­while, comes en­cased in crispy mor­eish pork skin. El Cerdo’s moun­tain paella is not the usual seafood va­ri­ety as it in­cludes plenty of pork, but you’ll still get the beau­ti­fully scented saf­fron-in­fused rice and the so­car­rat, aka crispy rice bits on the bot­tom of the pan, that makes the dish.
