El Iberico

We took the new MRT Sungai Buloh to Kajang line until the Bukit Bintang station to go to Pavilion. 50% discount is given for all fares for all LRT and MRT and Monorail lines until 31st August this year.

We then ate at El Iberico at Pavilion Elite (the building next to Pavilion). They are having an opening promotion: 50% discount for their signature pork ribs until 4th August 2017.

Complimentary bread with butter and olive oil.

Cold tapas platter at MYR35++ (10% service charge and 6% GST - MYR40.80 nett) - 3 types of pickled olives, ham, tuna, octopus, blue cheese and cheese.

Signature pork ribs. There are 3 choices for the marinate - 1. original, 2. spanish paprika 3. beer/honey mustard. We selected the 3rd option. The pork was tender but the fatty parts kind of put me off. I prefer the roasted potatoes, baby carrots and tomatoes that accompanied the meat.

Price is MYR68++ but with this 50% off promotion, we paid MYR34++ (MYR39.65 nett only) which is a good deal for those who likes to eat pork ribs. We also ordered a hot cup of tea (Earl Grey) at MYR9++ (MYR10.50 nett) with refillable hot water in an attempt to remove the oily feel from our mouths.

El Iberico is located on the 4th floor at Pavilion Elite (the building connected to Pavilion).

Total bill is MYR90.95 nett for 2 pax.

This is the Merdeka MRT station. It is very spacious and for a moment, I thought I was in Taiwan. It is very convenient for me to get to many areas via MRT now.

  1. Wow you really saved a lot there. First on the MRT fare and then on the food bill. I brought the boys on the MRT too and we too stopped at Bukit Bintang station last night. They loved the ride and requested to go on the MRT again.

  6. The bread and the cakes on the first photo looks good for me! By the way, the thick slices look like cake to me..

  7. The ribs look like so little. If paying for the full price, like not worth it. But this is premium imported ribs so can't be helped. I'm hoping to catch the 50% discount too.

    1. It may look like so little but it is meaty not like some places that shaved off the meat from the ribs and just leave a thin layer of meat on the ribs. Do go try with your brother, the one who is a foodie.

  8. If without promotion will be very expensive. At first glance the thick slices look like butter cake.

    1. If you like to eat cheese and cold cuts, you would like to eat the food on the cold tapas platter. Yes, I believe it is supposed to be deemed as premium meat too so that is why the price is a bit more expensive.
