Porcine lovers should be well acquainted with El Cerdo, a highly popular restaurant on Changkat Bukit Bintang that has been around for more than a decade. The menu offers nose-to-tail dishes from different parts of the world that are sure to delight those looking to banish their pork cravings.
For a fun and casual meal out with family and friends, head to Shell Out seafood restaurant in Kota Damansara where you can literally get into your food. Put on your bibs, ditch the forks and spoons and tuck into fresh seafood prepared Cajun style, or also known as Louisiana seafood boil.
Synonymous to great restaurants and bars in KL, the vibrant strip of Changkat Bukit Bintang comes alive evening onwards. During the day, the street is quiet and suitable for family and couples who prefer to dine in a quieter and more relaxed environment.
Opium KL, one of Werner's Group's restaurant offers a unique dining experience with its stylish Shanghai setting and eclectic selection of Oriental fusion dishes. Think Norwegian Salmon in curry and Kung Pao styled Angus beef medallions.
Previously known as "Asian Heritage Row", The Row is now a stretch of shop houses where independent shops, cafes, bars and co-working space are situated. With the opening of a new French Bistro called 2OX (Two-Ox), things are starting to gear up and I am sure The Row will become the next dining destination in KL.
Located among the restaurants and bars of Desa Sri Hartamas, Pizza Brava is an affordable find in this upscale neighborhood. The reason I say this is because a regular pizza here is even cheaper than Domino's / Pizza Hut etc. Weekdays set lunch is a steal starting from RM12.90 for 3 courses including a salad or soup, a main and free flow of ice lemon tea. If that's not value then I don't know what is!
Pork takes the center stage in The Eighth Avenue's versatile menu. It even encompasses several local and homestyle dishes from stewed pork to nasi lemak and tandoori. It's an great place to unwind too and it's only a matter of time their wine buffet and all you can drink beer promotions become the talk of the town, especially when their pricings are attractive even to a non-drinker such as myself.
