Started the day with Steve g the former figure skating pairs national champion turned referee. Philip was the other ar in this first match of the day.

The boss came out tonight to chat and explained how he makes the kibbeh. He butchers his own meat it turns out which gives him much better quality control.

Tonight as every time I’ve tried the kibbeh here is has been nothing short of the best as it was tonight.
