Year 8 find out what it takes to run a restaurant
Current restaurateur, Ibrahim Kasif (ON 2004) finished his HSC at Newington in 2004. Since then he has worked as a chef in some of Sydney’s best restaurants. A few years ago Ibrahim partnered together with Joe Valore and Elvis Abrahanowicz of the restaurant Porteno for their next project in Enmore. Together, they purchased and restored an old 1950s hair salon and opened a Turkish -inspired eatery called Stanbuli. Since opening, Stanbuli has been awarded a coveted chef’s hat in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide.
Earlier this year, the Year 8 Business of Food class visited Stanbuli and took a behind the scenes look at this popular Inner West diner. Ibrahim welcomed the boys into his restaurant and kept the boys enthralled with the story of his career and just what it takes to run a successful restaurant.
If you have a spare evening and don’t feel like cooking then I can highly recommend Stanbuli.
