Conflict Kitchen is a pretty amazing concept. It’s a pop-up restaurant that only serves food from countries that the United States is in conflict with.
A project run by Jon Rubin and Dawn Weleski and funded by the Sprout Fund, The Waffle Shop, The Benter Foundation, the Centre for the Arts in Society, and the Studio for Creative Inquiry, it changes its façade with each change of the menu.
Taking tips from the country whose cuisine they are serving, the Conflict Kitchen’s design and typography is fabulous – colourful and clever and blending cultures seamlessly.
So far the restaurant has served dishes from Iran, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Cuba and will serve delights from North Korea and other countries soon.
We say “soon” because the gang is currently on the search for a new location in downtown Pittsburgh. So keep your eyes and ears open.
