QBA LATIN BAR & GRILL
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.
