Elcerdo @ Changkat Bukit Bintang

Apr 11, 2009

Since BB knew that I was upset with the snake incident, he has invited me along to his trip to KL.

We decided to go to Elcerdo KL for dinner. This is a Spanish restaurant that served pork, pork and pork. I love pork, especially suckling pig. Since they are famous with that dish, we are definitely going to order half of it to try.

We parked our car at Pavilion KL. Since we do not really know where the restaurant is situated, we left the mall early. We walked for quite a distance. I have started to complain to BB that my foot are sore & I'm tired. We called up Kelvin for direction and we asked around too. Finally we found the place.

The ambiance there is nice. If you look around, you will notice that most of the tables are sure to order their specialty, suckling pig. We ordered a half suckling pig and also the highly recommended appetizer, air dried ham served with rock melon by Kelvin.

The ham is superb. We can't describe how tasty it is but it melted as soon as you put it into your mouth. We fall in love with it. The next day, we tried to look for this ham from most of the supermarket but sad to say that our mission failed. :(

Here come the suckling pig. It was pretty big portion for the 2 of us. Never mind la. Who care? Before it was cut, there is a small ceremony to be carried up. The waiter will ask the guest to participate in this "wish comes true" ceremony. So I was the honored one! I was given a plate. The waiter taught me to hold the plate and knock 3 times on the wooden chopping board where the roasted pig is served. Then I was asked to make a wish. Hehe... greedy me has made 2 wishes instead of 1. The waiter started the first chop with her plate. Then I followed with the 2 chops on the suckling pig's stomach. Once done, I have to break the plate as it symbolizes that my wish will come true. Everyone in the restaurant clapped. Haha... I felt great!

The pig was taken back to the kitchen for the rest of the chopping. The taste was plain and normal. So you must eat with the sauce that came with it. We concluded that the Chinese style suckling piglet is still the best. It is well marinated and meat is thin and crispy. Slurp slurp.....

We tried the Werner's Special dessert. Since our stomach has reached out the maximum capacity, we have requested the waiter to split the one portion dessert to two glasses. The wild raspberry sherbet is sour to me. But as you eat, you will get the slightly bitter chocolate which was hidden at the bottom of the glass.

The waiter served us 2 glasses of complimentary shot of lime juice, white wine and vodka upon asking for the bill. Since I can't drink, BB has drank it on my behalf. BB told me that the drink was refreshing & it is good for digestion after those oily food.

Well, the bill came up to be RM 300 for just the 2 of us. Hubby B, thank you for this scrumptious dinner.
