It's difficult to say there if there is one wood "specie" that works best in the kitchen, as I would argue the answer is subjective. However, there are some factors I would recommend you consider when putting a wood floor in your kitchen. In the kitchen, you will necessarily get liquids on the floor and so, using a floor that is more resistant to moisture is important. I would avoid at all options any solid wood planks that are less than 1/2" thick. The thinner planks are more prone to warping. If you go solid wood, I would recommend using 3/4" material. Next, I would consider an engineered wood floor floor. An engineered floor offers excellent moisture resistance because the substrate is typically applied in alternate pattern, engineered flooring also typically is less expensive than solid wood. Lastly, I would consider a handscraped wood floor product. The benefit of a handscraped floor is that the natural waviness of the flooring will hide most impefections that a slight warping could cause. I would just make sure that the handscraped product is greater than 1/2" if its solid wood and use an engineered handscraped product.
