EEx­pe­ri­ence the spirit of Cuban cul­ture with Qba Latin Bar & Grill. This multi-di­men­sional venue fea­tur­ing a Cigar lounge, Wine Bar, Is­land Bar and a Latin Grill Din­ing Room of­fers pa­trons a respite from the bustling streets of Bukit Bin­tang, cour­tesy of the lav­ish Westin KL.

Man­aged by the bril­liant Al­fredo Her­nan­dez, Qba has es­tab­lished it­self as the pin­na­cle of South Amer­i­can en­ter­tain­ment in KL. To­gether with fresh pro­duce, bright in­gre­di­ents and rus­tic flavours, Qba of­fers a unique Cuban gas­tro­nomic ex­pe­ri­ence that is not to be missed. The Crudo de Ca­marones (lime cured tiger prawns, tomato, onion, co­rian­der, sweet corn and red chilli) and Cos­tilla de Res a la Guayaba (guava glazed bone­less BBQ beef ribs with roasted pump­kin) form the sig­na­ture del­i­ca­cies on of­fer. In ad­di­tion, Qba’s Asa­dos (from the grill) pro­vides its pa­trons with heav­enly red meat treats, be­gin­ning with the Aus­tralian Master Kobe, per­fect with an ex­quis­ite glass of wine from Qba’s as­sem­blage. Fur­ther­more, Qba dishes out an ar­ray of de­lec­ta­ble ta­pas in­clud­ing the favourites, Em­panadas De Cordero (baked minced lamb turnovers with spicy guasacaca) and Tarkari De Bor­rego Y Arepi­tas (spiced lamb stew with home­made mini corn­bread).

Qba’s in­te­rior is cer­tainly a sight to be­hold, be­gin­ning with its court­yard, guests are graced with the nos­tal­gic charm of an old Ha­vana home. How­ever, the high­light of Qba is un­doubt­edly the ma­jes­tic res­i­dent an­gel. This mon­u­men­tal fig­ure is paired along­side wooden chairs and barstools, an open kitchen, and low key light­ing, cre­at­ing a so­phis­ti­cated at­mos­phere. Guests are en­ter­tained with Latin tunes, along with Happy Hours from Mon­days to Satur­days, from 5pm – 9pm.

To­gether with the un­par­al­leled qual­ity of its Ha­bano cigars, ex­cep­tional cui­sine, and a stim­u­lat­ing vibe, Qba Latin Bar & Grill is the place to be for an ex­clu­sive jour­ney into Cuba’s rich history, all in the pe­rusal of KL’s vi­va­cious set­ting. Lower Ground, The Westin KL, 199, Jalan Bukit Bin­tang, KL (03 2773 8338/ www.westin­din­ing.com.my)
