Syrian refugee resorts to food to rebuild his life in the USA. UU.

NEW YORK: When you came to the United States as a refugee from Syria , Diaa Alhanoun was pretty sure that her new life was going to include food. The 48-year-old man has been working in restaurants since he was 15, and has opened a couple of his own.

He was right, now he is cooking a storm in his own place. Sakib is a small outpost in the Williamsburg neighborhood, where Alhanoun produces the Mediterranean food he learned to cook as a teenager.

Alhanoun had left Syria in 2012. He and his family had been living in Jordan when the United Nations The High Commissioner for Refugees resettled them in the USA. UU. In 2016.

Of all the places where he has lived, Alhanoun believes that New Yorkers liked his food more.
