Just who exactly are attacking the Kook burrito makers? It really does sound like a joke. If this “cultural appropriation” charge is seriously raised, it’s an even bigger joke.
And, just who closes their establishment when they get so much publicity?
Its a food cart. They have vastly less overhead than a traditional restaurant. They can relocate if, for some reason, the local people signify their displeasure. The only real reason you’ll close your business is if your product is not wanted or you have mismanaged your business.
I’m a burrito fanatic. Not to brag, but I’ve had the greatest known burrito. And if I’d heard about their food from this article, I would absolutely have gone out of my way to buy their burrito. I’m sure there are many hungry thousands in Portland who think likewise.
So, I’ve got to believe the reason for their closure is only distantly related to the present “scandal.”
