Expand your horizons…but not before expanding your belt. At Rico’s World Kitchen, comfort food gets a cultural awakening from chef and owner, Rico Cunnington, whose knack for creative flavor combinations has put this Pure-gas-station-turned-restaurant on Atlanta’s radar…big time. Rico pulls from a boundless amount of international influences to create menu items like Nett’s Lumpia, a Filipino-style egg roll, Andalucian-inspired Chicharrones, and…
…arguably some of the best fried green tomatoes in the city. Served atop a bed of shredded lettuce, Applewood bacon (which is smoked to perfection on their outdoor patio), bleu cheese, and Roma tomatoes – all tossed with Rico’s famous homemade celery seed dressing – Rico’s Fried Green Tomato Salad is a fan favorite for a reason.
Another favorite is the Authentic Louisiana Po Boy…especially when tuna is fried up as the “Fresh Catch.” On toasted French bread with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, mayonnaise, and another one of Rico’s famous homemade remoulades, this Po Boy is a crowd pleaser, fo sho.
Fried Green Tomato Salad
Rico’s award-winning, lightly fried green tomatoes, served atop a bed of shredded lettuce, smoked-on-premise Applewood bacon, bleu cheese, and Roma tomatoes, all tossed with Rico’s famous homemade celery seed dressing. These glorious green tomatoes are also available as an appetizer (and, of course, served with another one of Rico’s famous homemade remoulades…this one Creole style).
Authentic Louisiana Tuna Po Boy
So, you can always order this with either fried shrimp or fried oysters…but when tuna is on the menu, take it! On toasted French bread with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, mayonnaise, and – you guessed it – a homemade remoulade, this is one satisfying Southern sandwich.
Mojo Pork Sandwich
Culturally influenced by the Canary Islands, this sandwich gets kicked up with Mojo marinated pork, which is hickory smoked on Rico’s own patio, pulled and sandwiched between a potato bun with guava barbecue sauce and pickles.
