Bubbylicious Brunch at El Cerdo

P1270015

Nothing like a glass of bubbly with dessert

Bubbly brunches have become a popular thing in the Klang Valley dining scene and one my friends and I look forward to when we’re out for a good time. A couple of years back, only hotels offered bubbly brunch buffets and they were often elaborate – gluttony at its finest, I say. When El Cerdo launched its version of a bubbly brunch, I thought it was rather reasonable considering the amount of food and drinks available.

Cava

Assorted cold cuts

Brunch (only on Sundays) begins from noon till 2.30pm and for RM148++, you get to indulge in an array of pork dishes and a la carte orders on top of free flow Cava, wines, beers, soft drinks and juices. Pretty sweet deal considering the spread and quality of items.

French pork “rillettes”,  pork liver pate and fresh bread

Expect an assortment of jamon Serrano, jamon iberico, pork loin, chorizo, salami, pig trotter pate, liver pate and French rillettes on the buffet spread – all deliciously porky, with my favourites being the rilletes, liver pate and jamon iberico. I love the rillettes here; shredded pork spread that is rich in flavour and perfect with cava.

Sausage platter

Pork steak

El Cerdo’s sausage platter comprised bacon-wrapped sausage and mini sausages – thuringer, spicy lyonner, black pepper and farmer. These, especially the spicy lyonner, were very good. The sausages were solid and terrifically flavoured, and delicious with a dash of spicy mustard.

Roast baby back ribs

P1260983

Hickory smoked Iberico soft ribs

P1260990

Iberico ribs stew

My favourite among the meats was the roast baby back ribs; crisp around the edges and tender to the bone. Hickory smoked Iberico soft ribs were also good but I thought the sauce was a bit too sweet and overwhelmed the meat. The meats are grilled to order, like the pork steak which was tender and flavourful from the marinade.

Wiener Schnitzel

Spaetzle with cheese and ham

P1270001

Seafood spaghetti

P1270007

Baked maceroni

P1260995

Pork belly fettucine

Pastas are pretty good too – my favourite is hands down the seafood spaghetti, tossed in a light cream sauce. Also good was the spaetzle with cheese and ham – a dish that is best shared as it’s hearty, chunky and rich in flavour.

Mango tiramisu

P1270033

Assorted homemade ice cream and sorbet

P1270018

Olive ice cream and rum & raisin (back)

Desserts comprise assorted ice cream and sorbets, Spanish chocolate cake and mango tiramisu. While I didn’t care much for the cake and tiramisu, the ice creams were delicious. I especially loved the olive oil ice cream – a creamy concoction with a nuance of nuttiness from the oil.

Spanish Chocolate Cake

For those who aren’t into bubbly or alcohol, there is a non-alcoholic version of the brunch, priced at RM99++ per person. I’m already planning my next visit to El Cerdo. Who’s up for brunch?
