Conflict Kitchen is introducing Pittsburgh natives to the rest of the world through delicious dishes made in house. These dishes will not be found anywhere else. Currently, they are introducing us to food from the Haudenouaunee Confederacy. Conflict Kitchen tailors the restaurant each time they switch the menu converting everything from the beverages to the desserts and everything in between.
First, the “Small”. Conflict Kitchen’s featured small dishes from the Haudenouanee Confederacy include items such as the WADESAI’DÖ:NDAK $4. Which, as we all know, features “sweet maple baked beans with salt pork (GF). However, if you are feeling a little more conservative they are also offering a “salad of wild greens lightly dressed with blueberry vinaigerette (GF V+)”.
Secondly, as the menu states “Mains”. The “Mains” list, at first glance, seems small offering only four items (ranging from $9-$13.5). However, each dish is packed with a filling punch. The NEOGË, menus priciest option, offers “grilled venison loin with a corn-chestut puree, mushrooms and salt-cured blueberries (GF)”. Yet the JOHNGWE’YÖNI’ $12 looks and sounds the most interesting offering “whole grilled quail served with roasted mushrooms and a wild greens salad (GF)”.
Finally, the “Sweets”. Other than the corn cookies Conflict Kitchen offers just one other dessert item, at least for this menu. OJIGSWA‘ introduces us to a whole new world plating up “popcorn pudding with corn bread crumble, toasted pumpkin seeds and bee pollen (V)”.
Conflict kitchen’s hours are Monday-Saturday 11-6 and they are located at 221 Schenley drive, Pittsburgh, a strong suggestion for anyone looking to eat somewhere unique.
