El Cerdito @ Changkat Bukit Bintang

We rushed to El Cerdo's new offshoot after receiving the SMS that it was open. It's a cosy, charming nook that fits right in with the rest of Changkat Bukit Bintang. There's a vast range of very interesting tapas, most of which are devilishly sinful but taste heavenly.

Crispy pork crackling.

Pig's head jelly and Manchego cheese (sheep's milk cheese aged for 180 days).

Pig's tail stew in sherry and saffron sauce.

Jamon Iberico. 

Stuffed pork tenderloin with onion marmalade.

Semi-cured chorizo cooked in red wine and apricots.

Spanish lamb casserole.

Black pudding/ blood sausage with red pepper and San Simon cheese.

Stella Artois and Tempranillo.

Clockwise from top left: El Cerdo Digestive, El Cerdito Special (sherry, orange vodka, orange juice), Absinthe, Sherry Flip (Egg, sugar sherry, creme de cacao).

El Cerdito,

Changkat Bukit Bintang.

  1. Your verdict?
    It all looks inedible and undrinkable!

  2. i'd say stick to el cerdo for proper meals and come to el cerdito for light nibbles.
    eh why inedible and undrinkable?

  3. pig's head, pig's tail, eggs in drinks?!
    i fear i'm not so adventurous.

  4. haha, i dunno where in hell i got the impression that elcerdito was pork free, when i first heard about it.

  5. they should have called it el chickeno or something like that if it were pork free! :D

  6. heh ya cerdito means pig in spanish. chicken is pollo.

  7. wah so er powderful your spanish

  8. eh i thought they were operating as one?? didnt know of the different menu..

    maybe it was bcoz we called up el-cerdo and asked for a room, and they give us the room here..

    havent been back to hav a look..

  9. maybe el cerdito handles the spillover crowd if el cerdo is full? i saw some waitresses walking between both outlets ... but yeah, there's a different menu comprising only tapas ...
