Portland Burrito Shop Forced to Close After Getting Hounded for ‘Stealing From Mexico’

May 25, 2017

Tortillas Burritos
Kali Wilgus and Liz “LC” Connelly, owners of Portland pop-up shop Kooks Burritos, just wanted to make and sell some really great burritos. So when they were on a trip to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, they “picked the brains” of the local tortilla ladies and brought those recipes back to the States.

“I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did,” Connelly told Willamette Week. “They told us the basic ingredients, and we saw them moving and stretching the dough similar to how pizza makers do before rolling it out with rolling pins. They wouldn’t tell us too much about technique, but we were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look. We learned quickly it isn’t quite that easy.”

Whelp, apparently this interview sparked an Internet shitstorm, which ended in Kooks Burritos shutting down and the two white women who owned it scrubbing social media of the business’ existence.

Wilgus and Connelly were accused of cultural appropriation by the Internet mob, and even the theft of PoC’s recipes.

    Even just a few years ago this type of story would have been assumed to be satire and a good joke.

    It says a lot about our culture that now this sort of thing actually happens…sad.

    Again, the “tolerant” left shows it’s increasingly ugly head. Why don’t they go after Taco Bell and see what success they would have. Better get rid of Panda Express less we annoy. And next should go would be Olive Garden. I guess Trump hasn’t done anything they can complain about this week so they have to go after 2 WOMEN who were just trying to support their families. (misogyny much?)

    It is a shame because these Progressive liberals don’t care one bit about Mexico or cultural leanings; they are just against business success. Progressives do not want anyone succeeding in any business because that takes away from their wanting to convince everyone that we need government to take care of us. Ever notice how Progressives treat Black American’s who succeed in business? Ever wonder why Black American’s who succeed in business shun Progressive attitudes? These two women were attacked for being responsible Americans trying to what the American Dream is supposed to be all about. Had Glen Bell not already succeeded in his business, these Progressive obstructionists would most likely have prevented the U.S. from ever having Taco Bell.

        It’s a bit difficult to advertise if you don’t make noise about your product or service. If these folks had not been located in such a Progressive liberal area, the trash talk against them would have brought in a lot more business for them.

    Anyone who watches Food Network (DD&D in particular) knows that people go abroad to learn a cultural cuisine in order to come back, share it with the public and make a living from it! I applaud these ladies for wanting to make their food as authentic as possible. What’s the BFD? This is still America, right? Can’t Americans live the American dream, too?

    Steal FROM Mexico? That’s rich!

  • Glen

    This is rotten bullshit. These folks have a perfect right to run their food stand the way they see fit. They were only trying to improve on their food offered when they went to Puerto Nuevo for a vacation and also to hone their cooking skills. So, what’s the big fuc*ing problem. Leave people alone and let them do their thing. This is wrong Portland, your wrong!

  • Curmudgeon

    Is there any way to help these ladies? Rotten commiecrats…..

    No more bagels for Christians!

  • RB

    Look out Wolfgang Puck and Rachael Ray, you’re next!

    How dare they share top secret recipes and cooking techniques with the general public. Anyone using these “illegal” recipes should be waterboarded and locked up in Gitmo.

      Gordon Ramsey too!
