Conflict Kitchen is a take-out window in Pittsburgh that serves cuisine from countries the United States is in conflict with. Or, in the case of a recent theme, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, a union of six Native American nations. The menu included traditional Iroquois dishes like neogë’ wade’sgöndak (cranberry-and-juniper-braised venison), onädatgos (wild greens dressed with a light blueberry vinaigrette), and wadesai’dö:ndak (sweet maple baked beans with salt pork).
Previous iterations have featured authentic dishes from Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Afghanistan, and Palestine. The food is further enhanced by events, performances, and other cultural initiatives designed to spark a dialogue. Travelers, food lovers, and anyone interested in the greater global good would do well to follow their feed with open eyes and a serious appetite.
