(The restaurants below are arranged in no particular order.)
When it comes to Western pork dishes, El Cerdo is probably the top-of-mind recall owing to its long-standing reputation of up to 9 years in our beloved city centre. El Cerdo brings home-cooked pork flavours from the American and European continent onto a table, in Changkat Bukit Bintang. The Roasted Suckling Pig had a crispy skin and tender meat accompanied with juicy fats. The German Crispy Knuckle also had a crackling outer layer with soft and moist layers of meat and fat. Spare Ribs here are also good, succulent and tender and flavourful on its own.
Pork is Ante’s forte. Kick-off your meal with its oriental inspired Sweet Belly as a starter. For mains, The Char-Grilled Pork Steak, Pork’s Collar, Pork Diane and The Hogger Pork Ribs are good choices. The Char-Grilled Pork Steak comes in a sizable portion and is grilled to perfection such that the moisture and tenderness of the meat is preserved yet a hint of smoky flavor can be traced. Meanwhile, the ribs are well marinated with barbeque sauce and easily falls off the bone. What blew our mind, however, is the Pork Diane – pork loin pan seared in wine on top of a bed of mashed peas drenched generously in creamy highly addictive sauce that is plate-licking-good. Those looking for a lighter meal may opt for the “Real Bacon” Carbonara.
This is probably as German as it gets here in Malaysia. What you must try here – Pork Knuckle, Sausage, and Beer.
