VaKaVa: Abu Dhabi’s Fiesta of Latin Flavour & Rhythm

Experience all the fiery passion of Latin America with every dish, conversation and rhythm. Introducing VaKaVa – Pan Latin Grill and Lounge, where vibe and flavour come together to set your soul ablaze.

Iconic landmark luxury hotel, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, and Mexican celebrity Chef Richard Sandoval have joined forces to open the doors of VaKaVa Pan Latin Grill & Lounge on 17 June 2019. The sleek, colourful venue is the second incarnation of much-loved Toro Toro, offering diners and hotel guests an elevated experience combining food, fun and flamboyant features.

VaKaVa is Toro Toro’s more mischievous twin sister; sharing the same Latin roots but bringing the flavours, sights and sounds to another level, VaKaVa is vibrant, fiery, passionate and more spirited.

Taking the place of Toro Toro, VaKaVa enjoys the same spectacular and extensive two-storey spot.

The new and exciting menu offers popular Pan Latin dishes served as sharing platters, including soft shell crab tacos and cachapas (Venezuelan sweetcorn pancake, halloumi cheese and sour cream), grilled meat churrasco and traditional rodizio served a la carte, alongside a selection of savoury side dishes to complement the cuts.

Beyond the food and drink, VaKaVa really comes to life with its Latin rhythms and percussions. A resident DJ will spin the very best Latin Fusion tunes Monday to Saturday, from 8pm onwards and a band will perform on Tuesday to Saturday, from 9pm onwards, bringing an authentic and vibrant South American vibe to the whole place. The Ladies Night every Tuesday will offer an experience to remember, with signature beverages, delicious food and great music.

VaKaVa, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, 6pm-2am on weekdays, 6pm-3am on weekends.
