R & D Kitchen Should Be Your Family Favorite

R + D Kitchen serves consistently excellent food in a trendy yet comfortable setting. The space is beautiful, with outlines of exposed wood and natural light pouring through the asymmetrical roof. Many customers come for a drink at the large, oval bar which seats many and also serves the full menu. The menu is small yet still provides a variety of dishes and allows them to focus on getting everything exactly right.

Usually when you see sushi on the same menu as as a burger and meatloaf, you steer clear of that restaurant. It is quite the opposite with R + D Kitchen. The sushi ingredients are of the freshest quality, and the rolls are not only unique but also very tasty. One of our favorites is the Thai Tuna Roll. It combines gorgeously pink ahi tuna with creamy avocado, sweet coconut flakes, and macadamia nuts. The flavors are fantastic and the crunch of the nuts adds an entirely different salty dimension to your normal tuna roll.

Dip Duo

If you want to start with an appetizer, try the Dip Duo. A small bowl of guacamole and a small bowl of pimento cheese dip are accompanied by crispy tortilla chips. The cheese dip is luscious and spicy and the guacamole is chunky. They are a match made in heaven.

It's a tough competition around Dallas, but we believe R + D Kitchen has one of the best burgers around town. A juicy beef patty is layered with all of the normal toppings and lathered in a hickory sauce all nestled between a house made bun. The bun is excellent and the meat is fresh, but the sauce is really what makes this burger stand out. It adds just the right amount of sweetness and tang. You have to give this burger a shot.

Another favorite item on the menu is the Newporter Salad. While all of the salad options are great in their own right, the Newporter is chock full of healthy and satisfying toppings. A bed of mixed greens and spinach with a mustard bacon vinaigrette is piled high with a combination of nuts, julienne apples, provolone cheese, golden raisins, hard boiled egg, bacon, and rotisserie chicken. This salad really packs a punch, and it may just be our favorite salad in Dallas.

It's hard to skip dessert at R + D Kitchen. Every dessert is delicious, but splurge and go for the giant ice cream sundae next time you stop in for dinner. Vanilla ice cream is topped with homemade whipped cream and candied nuts. The sundae is transformed when you pour on the thick hot fudge sauce. It is no ordinary sundae. It is rich. And it is divine.
