Schenley Drive, Oakland
This place stirs up contentious dialogue while dishing out affordable, tasty ethnic fare. Receiving death threats isn’t new to this CMU professor’s side project—a walk-up kiosk that only sells cuisine from countries with which the United States is in conflict. Past permutations have included Cuban, Palestinian, Venezuelan, Iranian, Afghan, and North Korean. The current menu is Haedenosaunee Confederacy. If you’re unsure of what that means, Conflict Kitchen has succeeded in their mission to hook you and educate.
