Dinner at Dick’s Kitchen

Normally, I really enjoy cooking, but after getting home from work yesterday evening, I had absolutely no desire to cook. I felt quite tired, my eyeballs hurt from staring at a computer all day and prepping a meal was the last thing I wanted to think about. I suggested to
Jesse that we go eat at Dick’s Kitchen, the only restaurant in Portland that actually coins themselves as being paleo-friendly. Luckily for me, Jesse complied. I guess I can say lucky for him too because eating out is a very rare occasion for us.

This place offers a wide variety of burgers, all made from high quality meats (there are non-meat options too). There’s organic turkey, grass-fed beef, wild salmon, buffalo, etc. They also serve an array of other things, such as kale salad, kielbasa and so forth. I chose a turkey burger served “naked” (aka without the bun, but with a lettuce “bun” rather). I got it with housemade kimchee instead of cole slaw and a side of collard greens.

The burger was served with their signature sauce, which is some type of aioli (I think the waitress said it was garlic, but I don’t remember), red onion, tomato, housemade pickles and of course, the lettuce bun. It was messy, juicy and delicious.
Jesse was laughing at me trying to bite into it. I thought about having him take my photo for the blog, but then I came to the realization that nobody needs to see that. It was not pretty! Jesse had two sliders – one beef, one buffalo – and sweet potato “not fries,” which are baked rather than deep fried. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and will definitely go back soon.

    Hi Alisa! Thank you for your great review of Dick’s Kitchen! I’m getting to this a little late, but the sentiment is still the same. Thank you!

      Of course! I absolutely love Dick’s Kitchen! At the time that I wrote this post, I didn’t eat beef yet (I was a recovering vegetarian), but I do now and love the grass-fed beef burgers! They’re always done to perfection and never disappoint.
