After his hangout, a once-beloved Spanish restaurant, bar and nightclub in Rockville went bankrupt at the start of the pandemic, Ecuadorian bartender and bar manager Steven Tobar felt the need to bring nightlife back to Rockville – almost two years later, Koumbie was born.

Kumbia, a name derived from the Latin-style music “Cumbia”, is a Latin American-style restaurant and nightclub at 100 B Gibbs St. in Rockville Town Square, serving cuisine from Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, from Ecuador and Bolivia. The restaurant held its grand opening on March 19.

Tobar, co-founder and director, left his job at Cuba Libre, a contemporary Cuban restaurant and nightclub in DC, to recreate the city’s nightlife experience in the Rockville area. The Kumbia discotheque is open on Friday and Saturday evenings until 2am. The restaurant closes at 10 p.m. all other days of the week.

“Once La Tasca went out of business, there was nowhere else [in Rockville] which had a diner and nightclub concept,” Tobar said. “I felt like people in this area would need something local instead of driving to DC”

Unfortunately, after Tobar and his co-founder Alejandro Stoto bought the restaurant, they had to put their dreams on hold for over a year and a half. At the time, many restaurants, like La Tasca, were filing for bankruptcy and exiting the culinary scene.

In the meantime, the co-founders have been working to put together a special menu that includes the most popular Latin American dishes along with a robust cocktail selection.

Tobar’s Ecuadorian roots and Stoto’s Guatemalan origins inspired the restaurant’s Latin American theme. They wanted a multicultural experience for their restaurant, as Latin American restaurants in the area tended to serve strictly Mexican, Peruvian or Colombian cuisines, Tobar explained.

Both immigrants, the co-founders have developed the menu with authenticity in mind, while revisiting many dishes.

One of the many variations they have created is for chicharrón, a fried pork belly dish of Colombian origin. Typically the chicharrón is cut into small pieces, whereas in Kumbia it is served whole with a sweet marinade, unique to the restaurant.

Since its opening, Kumbia has struggled to meet the demands of its diverse menu. Many products needed to make authentic Latin American dishes must go through a lengthy process of importing into Maryland.

“Maryland is very difficult to get products [to], [because] of [alcohol beverage services]– if I want to bring something from Argentina, [it] has to get a special order that takes four to six weeks just to place the order and then it takes another three to four weeks just to get the product here, so it takes about two months just for one product,” Tobar explained.

Even with the challenges of opening a restaurant during a pandemic, Kumbia has managed to stay true to her warm Latin roots.

“My favorite part [about Kumbia] is to have people [come] that [are] from different countries in South America and also from here, and they like to come because of the food because we have favorite dishes [Latin American] dishes, and for music [as well]said Ana Reyes, a waitress at the restaurant. Reyes describes Kumbia as a family place where people can come with small children or with friends to enjoy the DJ during clubbing nights.

The lively energy of the restaurant, filled with upbeat Latin music and friendly servers from all parts of Latin America creates a space where staff and customers can bond with each other.

An employee found a house out of the blue in Kumbia. “I work here because I like Steven and Alejandro, the managers, [they are] this genre [people]and I love my colleagues, [they] helped me because I didn’t understand English,” said Lizeth Ferreira, a waitress and hostess at the restaurant. “Sometimes you can’t find such a [good coworkers] [at] your job.”

Ferreira immigrated to Maryland from Columbia last month and began working at Kumbia shortly after arriving. As a college student living in DC, Ferreira benefits from working at Kumbia in more ways than one.

“I can improve my English, and I feel close to my culture, my language and my colleagues, and I [get] to meet [new people]”, said Ferreira. “I feel happy, because when I improve my English, I improve my Spanish, [and] I can test it with other foods and I can [learn about] [other] crops with food [I serve.]”

If there’s one thing that stands out at Kumbia, it’s the menu. Reyes especially enjoys the taste of home she gets at the restaurant with a hot dish that includes a fried egg, avocado, beans and more.

“There is a dish that I [love] because I’m from this place – it’s Bandeja Paisa!

Story of a Kenyan woman who runs a successful American restaurant https://werecookingrestaurantsusa.com/story-of-a-kenyan-woman-who-runs-a-successful-american-restaurant/ Mon, 25 Apr 2022 12:31:03 +0000 https://werecookingrestaurantsusa.com/story-of-a-kenyan-woman-who-runs-a-successful-american-restaurant/ For many people, losing a job in a foreign country is one of the most unimaginable things.

For many people, losing a job in a foreign country is one of the most unimaginable things. It’s a recipe for chaos and can lead to depression.

This is what happened to Mumbi Baskin in 2010, who was working in Texas, USA at the time.

However, for her, it was a defining moment, a time to self-evaluate, get up, dust herself off, and pick up the pieces.

Mumbi embarked on a journey to do what she loved the most: cooking. She created the African Fusion restaurant in Dallas, Texas.

Mumbi’s customers enjoy a meal at its restaurant.

Chams Media

In his interview with Alex Chamwada about his Dare abroad program, Mumbi shared that she developed a love for cooking different dishes at a tender age.

She explained that after losing her job, she started selling it from a vehicle and many people asked her to start a restaurant.

To his surprise, the demand was very high. In two weeks, she was delivering 100 plates a day.

“I had to figure out what to do, so I started cooking because I had all the time and I loved doing it. I would then sell the food from my vehicle. Then my friends encouraged me to open a restaurant because I was such a good cook,” said the entrepreneur.

Explaining the choice of name, Mumbi shared that she chose African Fusion because it crosses the African continent and serves cuisine from all over.

“We infused different types of African cuisine, including some dishes from Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Botswana, South Africa and East Africa.”

His first step was to identify a space in Texas and ensure it was easily accessible to most Kenyans living in and visiting the area.

Starting the restaurant was initially difficult due to the nature of the regulations imposed on such businesses by the United States government. Sourcing ingredients was also a challenge she faced.

“There are a lot of things that we really take for granted at home because we just do them the way we want to, but everything here is regulated. Even looking for ingredients was no walk in the park, and it still isn’t,” added Mumbi.

The entrepreneur explains that nyama choma (roasted meat) is the most popular menu as it crosses the entire African continent.

His company now has 22 employees and outdoor catering accounts for 30% of turnover, with Africans calling on his services at various events.

“We do graduations, weddings, ruracios (dowry payment ceremonies), golf tournaments and many other traditional events to provide people with the good food they will remember at home,” she said.

Although she has been abroad for more than two decades, she continues to help those less fortunate. “I work with a group in Eldoret to provide medical equipment like wheelchairs, hospital beds and other supplies to the needy,” she noted.

She advises Kenyans wishing to set up businesses abroad not to take shortcuts and to comply with the laws and regulations governing specific countries and states.

Mumbi first traveled to the United States in 1998 to attend a conference on women and leadership, after which she never returned.  Being a first time in the United States, she was lucky enough to get her first job as a loan collector.

The downtown Atlanta location of Latin American restaurant Alma Cocina reopens Saturday, April 30, after temporarily closing two years ago for the pandemic.

As workers return to offices and business travel and conventions resume at downtown Atlanta hotels, Fifth Group Restaurants partner Robby Kukler says he’s “eager” to reopen the location. Alma Cocina’s origin at 191 Peachtree Tower later this month.

“Alma Downtown closed in March 2020 due to the onset of the pandemic. Downtown traffic has been slow to return, and convention and travel business has recently started to pick up,” Kukler told Eater.

Fifth Group Restaurants also owns La Tavola, Lure, three Ecco locations, and several South City Kitchen locations in Atlanta and the surrounding metro area. A second Alma Cocina site opened in Buckhead just weeks before the global health crisis hit.

When asked how Fifth Group managed to retain expensive downtown Atlanta space during the Peachtree Tower’s long hiatus, Kukler credits the landlord’s rent relief in the early weeks of the pandemic and revenue generated by its other restaurants and catering services open and in operation throughout the ongoing health crisis.

Alma Cocine

Many Alma Cocina employees in downtown Atlanta were moved to other Fifth Tier restaurants during the shutdown, Kukler said, with some staff returning to work at the Peachtree Tower location.

Alma Cocina opened at 191 Peachtree Tower 11 years ago. Longtime Alma Cocina chef Chad Clevenger now runs Alma Cocina’s kitchen in Buckhead.

Chef Juancarlos “JC” Colon is taking over the restaurant in downtown Atlanta and plans to add a few new dishes to the menu there, including crudo with burnt nori-avocado mash and Anaheim chilies, guajillo-grilled octopus with ancho carrots, and pork belly served with charro beans and fresh tortillas.

Alma Cocina-Centre-ville reopens on April 30 for lunch and dinner.

Public transport info: Accessible via the Peachtree Center MARTA station and the #40 MARTA bus along Peachtree Street.

Want to try something new this weekend? El Corazon has officially opened in Edmonton and awaits your visit! The restaurant has been teasing its arrival since last summer, so we’re excited to see what they’ve brought to town.

Located in the Glenora district, the spot is inspired by a few countries in Latin America and elsewhere. Mexican food is definitely the centerpiece, but you can also enjoy everything from Argentinian provoleta to paella while you’re there.

The Backstreet Boys are heading to Edmonton and tickets go on sale this Friday

The drinks menu follows the same thread. Of course, it’s hard to say no to a classic margarita. However, we might be tempted by a glass of sangria or even a little Tiki option while we’re there. Basically, you can keep things classic or get a little adventurous. Heck, do both!

And you can do both starting today! El Corazon will host its first dinner party tonight, then continue things through the weekend and beyond.

El Corazon

When: Open!
Or: 14101 West Block Drive NW
