Qba Latin Bar & Grill at Westin Hotel, KL is a place where you can get the idea of B4. And yes, you will get to enjoy the great Latin American food & BBQ prepared freshly on spot upon orders, free floes of beer + cocktails + wine + tequila and great music. Yes you hear me, Free Flow of alcoholic beverages!!!

Thanks to Ming and Yoke May from the Westin Group. The Makan Kaki-s and I were brought to Qba Courtyard to indulge the Latin American cuisine and explore the idea of B4.
