The Conflict Kitchen is a new "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant in Pittsburgh that serves customers food from "enemy" nations (at least "enemy" according to the American government). The creators, Jon Rubin, John Pena and Dawn Weleski, created the Conflict Kitchen to raise awareness of international issues surrounding the USA and its conflicted counterparts.

Every four months the restaurant is supposed to change themes, highlighting the numerous country conflicts. Featured this month is the 'Kubideh Kitchen,' which features the Kubideh sandwich, an Iranian specialty. The Conflict Kitchen is a pretty inventive way to raise awareness.
