Qba Latin Bar and Grill
Your rating: None Average: 4.5

After reading Cuisine and Culture by Linda Civitello, an enlightening account of how history has moulded our diets, Chef Pearl’s desire to learn more about food led her to pursue a career in cooking.

Eight years later, this Kuching lass is Chef de Cuisine at one of KL’s authentic Latin American restaurants, having spent all that time studying contemporary Latin American cuisine and falling in love with the variety of spices and condiments used throughout this region. Most recently, she had an encounter with Maricel Priscilla, a culinary historian focusing on the cuisines of Spain and Latin America, who had come to Qba Latin Bar & Grill for some promotional work.

Chef Pearl says the meeting left quite an impression, allowing her to draw inspiration from Priscilla’s deep knowledge of the Latin cuisines to improve her cooking. Working with the freshest and most premium ingredients, such as Master Kobe beef and rainbow trout, is one of Chef Pearl’s greatest pleasures, second only to creating dishes that astound her diners.
