As the meeting ended, the dignitaries were escorted to the main hall, whilst Huzoor returned to his desk and the chairs were repositioned to their normal position.
Thereafter, several journalists entered Huzoor’s office and took the opportunity to ask Huzoor questions during a press conference.
A journalist from the Philadelphia Inquirer asked Huzoor if he had been able to sample any of the local food.
In reply, Huzoor smiled and said:
“My people did not tell me of any local specialities but if you recommend something I will look to try it.”
Without hesitation, the journalist said:
“You should try a Philly cheesesteak.”
Later in the evening, the local Jamaat ordered the local speciality, known as a Philly cheesesteak, comprising strips of beef steak, with melted cheese in a long bread roll, from a local restaurant and, as he had promised the journalist, Huzoor tried it. Afterwards, Huzoor told me he had liked it and that it was a good recommendation by the journalist.
