Conflict Kitchen: Food from America's Antagonists

by Andrew Price

June 27, 2010

Sure, Ahmadinejad is bad, but kubideh sandwiches are great. Just because America has differences with some despot, that doesn't mean we can't appreciate his country's culture. That's the idea behind Conflict Kitchen, a take-out restaurant in Pittsburgh that "only serves cuisine from countries that the United States is in conflict with."

Right now, Conflict Kitchen is serving Iranian sandwiches with spiced ground beef, basil, mint, and onion on barbari bread. Each one comes in a special wrapper that features information about Iranian poetry, food, film, and history. Every four months the menu (and facade) will change to highlight a different nation, and each new version of Conflict Kitchen will be supplemented with events about the featured country. Next up: Pyongyang manduguk, perhaps?
