Pakistani ‘street food’ draws large crowd at UN
“The UN provides a unique platform to promote Pakistan’s soft power,” said Ambassador Lodhi and added “and that includes our cuisine which is quite distinctive and yet familiar to many people”.
The ‘street cuisine’ offered at the largely attended event included samosas, namak paras and bun kababs, which were billed as desi sliders.
The Mission had also displayed colourful standees and infographics decorated with motifs and patterns from Pakistani Truck Art.
Diplomats from around the world showed keen interest in the quintessential Pakistani take on art used to embellish trucks and lorries.
The event was part of a series of projects and initiatives that have been undertaken by Pakistan’s Mission to the UN under the leadership of Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi to showcase the rich cultural heritage and diversity of the country.
Ambassador Lodhi and other officers of the Mission mingled with the guests and explained the food items which were much appreciated and enjoyed during the lunch hour on a busy day at the UN.
