Elcerdo @ Changkat Bukit Bintang

Welcome to Spanish delicacies this time around!

Elcerdo at Changkat Bukit Bintang!! They specialise in serving variety of pork and porkielicious dishes! Of course they serve chicken, lamb and etc if you are not part of the porkielicious gang :P

They promote 'nose to tail eating' some more! That means piggies can be eaten from their noses to their tails! I know! So cruel and yet I'm eating them!! Evil me!!

Before I even entered this restaurant, I knew that I'll be broke after coming out from there! Because all the cars parked outside was either Mercedes or Benz :( Sobs sobs and we paid RM 10 for the car jockey to drive our mini Viva peroduo away! (*lol*)

The piggie smile instead of Mona Lisa Smile will welcome you into the restaurant! I think if Leonardo Da Vinci is still alive, he is so gonna kill the owner of the restaurant, which is Werner, the German, if I'm not mistaken! haha, I laugh man I tell you it was so cute!!!

It was a joyful Friday night and the restaurant was full of laughters and the guests were all so delighted! It was so LOUD and WOW, one word, AMAZING! I didn't expect it to cheer me up but it did miraculously! Unbelievable!!

Eh?? Maybe because they use the Lucky Fortune Piggie instead of the traditional Lucky Fortune Cat if you notice (from the above picture!)

Everything in this restaurant was associated with piggie!! The paintings, the pictures or the decorations!

Piggie is so cute they spread it everywhere in this restaurant!

I also realise a lot of people celebrating birthday in this restaurant, just like what you can see in TGI Friday!! Another similarity is that all the staff will surround the birthday boy/girl while singing him/her the birthday song. Except the language they use is different. I didn't know what language they use in the birthday song in here! It could be German or Spanish? I guess.

That was Colee's handbag, not mine :P

This was also the first time when I was provided a mini bench to leave my handbag on!

The table setting and the red disposable serviette!

We were served the soup of the day (forgot what soup was that, but certainly neither chicken nor mushroom soup :P) and some french bread as our starters.

We also ordered a plate of 4-piece-sausage at RM 24.50. One sausage costed more than RM 6!!

A plate of Ceasar's Salad at RM 26. I still prefer the one in Daintihill! :P

The glass of water and the sauce.

Since it's famous with pork, we had also ordered the spare ribs that made in Spanish recipe. They call it Iberino Ribs.

There were 6 pieces in one plate. There were not much meat, but all bone :( Though it's finger-licking good (Not promoting KFC :P), but after I'd taken one piece I felt like I had eaten nothing! The dish was so expensive!! It costed RM 68 (excluding 15% charges)!! Super expensive! Maybe I didn't know how to appreciate!! as I'm not a rich person :P You know rich people love to pay extraordinary high price to eat extremely little portion of food!

That's a lemon water for washing hand after eating the spare ribs with hand!

Well, frankly speaking I would give a 7/10. It was quite chewy though!

Another dish we ordered came together with a plate of bottomless Ceasar's Salad, but of course this one was with more leaves compared with the one above! (*Chuckles*) I said bottomless, because our server was so attentive, kept on asking us whether we want a refill, of course, at no extra costs :P

and a plate of deep fried potatoes. Bottomless as well!! Not bad also :P

The spanish dish was roasted 1/2 piglet which was imported all the way from Denmark!!! So cruel right??!! and yet I ate it!! It costed us RM 118. It was worth it!! Incredibly delicious!! but with FAT meat instead of lean meat (I hardly take FAT meat!!). I love the crispy skin, especially those on the face!! So tasty (and so cruel, I know!!)!! For your information, the pork could be eaten from the nose to tail, as instructed everywhere in the restaurant (signboards, mirrors and etc.)

Have I mentioned that there was at least one dish of this at almost every table!! It's a MUST! If you go Elcerdo without taking this dish, is like you go Paris without going to Eiffle Towel :P

The quite good-looking German server!

The German guy whose uncle is Werner, the owner of this restaurant came to us and taught us to cut the piglet with a plate (because it was very crispy and could be easily chopped)!! I instantly volunteered myself!! (*paiseh*) Sorry girls, forgot to ask for permission because I was too excited :P

He explained to us that before you cut the piglet, you could make a wish. Once listened, I made a wish that was related to both relationship and wealth. Then he continued, saying that I could only make a wish of either relationship or wealth!! (*fainted and lying down on the floor*) I only realised that I was greedy :P

The humorous and kay poh (busybody) German guy took several guess until I nodded! Haha it's a secret (*wink wink*)

After you had made a wish, and followed by cutting the piglet, you need to break the plate to throw away the bad luck! which I did and throwed it in a container that was made of stone that could easily break the glass!

Then went to toilet, saw this cartoon piggie! So cute! OMG!

Bathing ones some more!

After the meal, they gave us a shot glass of alcohol for digestion! FOC! (*Yeah*) and asked us to submit the answer for the MCQ (Multiple Choice Question) in order to win a discount for the next dining!

Then towards the end, I was so tempted to order their dessert but the rest of the girls didn't want to order because they wanted Haagen-Dazs, so at last I ordered my own!!

The sweet and sour Werner's Special with red Strawberry Ice-cream, vanilla ice-cream hidden underneath and chopped nuts on top. Thumbs Up!! Price: RM 22.50 excluding tax, RM 25.90 including tax. Pricey though!

Overall, it's a pricey restaurant and my RM 100 was gone in one meal (*Sob sob*) Imagine if I order red wine, like those wealthy people there, don't know how much would it cost! Well, I will still come here though as I was all delighted the whole night! For no reasons after the meal!! I L-O-V-E love the atmosphere there!
