Bassel, who is a Syrian refugee, arrived in Hertfordshire with his family in 2016. He recently teamed up with his friend Zubair Salam, a refugee from Afghanistan, to open Kabsa Foods which serves fresh Syrian and Afghan food at Watford Market. Kabsa Foods is open Tuesday through Saturday, and was awarded a 5 Star Food Hygiene rating, which is an excellent start for the venture.
One of HWSF’s volunteers recently visited the stall and said how great it was to see Bassel serving his customers and enticing passersby with freshly cooked samples.
We encourage well-wishers to stop by and say hello to Bassel and his partner Zubair to show their support.
Kabsa Foods is located in The Parade, opposite Fitness4Less, in the centre of Watford.
