Basel, better known as "The Hungry Syrian Wanderer" captured the hearts of many Pinoys because of his kindness. He recently spent hours to cook meals for Taal evacuees which will be distributed to the evacuees in Batangas.
"My first time ever to cook 1,103 pcs of Chicken Wings in ONE GO! (I really counted so I'm aware of the packed meals I'll be distributing today. ) and made Chicken Kabsa, a famous Syrian dish (very similar to Chiken Biryani, if familiar). Topped with nuts, cashew, (didnt find pistachios) etc.I added dates na din hehe. Not exactly complete ingredients but very close and did my best to finish 5 rounds of big giant kawa!" he wrote in the caption of his Facebook post.
It took him 7 hours to cook and 4 hours to pack the food.
" I never cooked before I left Syria, so my mom would be so proud once she sees this haha. Shout out to my mama, eto na po yung anak nyong puro kain lang at walang alam sa pagluluto dati " Basel added.
He also gave out some relief goods as shown in his earlier video.
Basel moved to the Philippines 7 years ago when war broke out in Syria. He calls himself an "adopted son of the Philippines."
