my favourite thiiiings

Last week a bunch of us from the office went to El Cerdo’s for dinner. El Cerdo is billed as THE pork specialist of Changkat Bukit Bintang and we’d been wanting to go for ages, but you know how hard it can be to get a date and time everyone can agree on. Finally we just said, ‘fuck it!’ and made reservations for 11 people at 6.30pm. 8 made it. 

nyam nyam nyam

Everyone was pretty excited. I’d been bombarding them with reviews of the resto gleaned from various food blogs and pigging out was on everybody’s mind.

What did we order? Lemme try and list it out:

  • roasted suckling pig
  • mixed appetizer plate: french rilettes, pig trotter pate, spanish salami, pork liver pate and pig cheeks in wine aspic
  • boquerones
  • pan fried goat cheese wrapped in Jamon Serrano
  • lentil and vegetable soup with german sausage
  • pork shoulder steak
  • roasted pork short ribs
  • mango sherbets with vanilla licor
  • run and raisin pancake ‘kaiserschmarrn’
  • alexander grappa
  • jagermeister
  • hoegarden witbier, and
  • the placido tuscany chianti

Took us 4 hours to eat and drink everything. How was the food you ask? It was AWESOME. Just bloody fantastic. By the time the suckling pig main course arrived, we fell on it with our bare hands like savages.

nom nom nom

The bill came to a whopping RM1.2K and there were shocked gasps from the locals all around but everyone agreed it was just the thing after a hard month’s work.

We’re already on the lookout for the next resto to pig out at 😀

  2. got plate breaking session or not? a colleague said she had to break a plate and use tht broken piece to cut her meat. -_-

  3. the grouch

    dals: oh, it was 🙂

    ili: got, but you don’t use the shards to cut the piglet. you use an intact plate and that’s the plate that gets broken.

  4. you use a plate to cut? must take forever.

    but i’d just use my claws, yum, suckling peeeg!

  5. the grouch

    mm: the meat was so tender it took less than a minute. chop! chop!
