Take Out Stand Only Serves Food From Countries The U.S. Is At War With

Take Out Stand Only Serves Food From Countries The U.S. Is At War With

Conflict Kitchen uses gourmet food to create a conversation about global politics.

Karen Baker

This rotating take-out restaurant in Pittsburgh is redefining political protest: they only sell food from countries the U.S. is in conflict with. Forget fliers, think arepas, a staple of Venezuelan cuisine. Leave your bullhorn, just order some kubideh, a signature Afghan dish.

A project of Carnegie Mellon University graduates, the restaurant stirs up public conversation around political conflicts with food. Each theme is augmented by related events, performances and discussions. The take-out only food comes served in paper covered with quotes from interviews with nationals on various political topics, ranging from economic embargo to the nuclear missile crisis.

Offerings have included Iranian, Afghan, Cuban and Venezuelan food. Up next? North Korea.
