Recently I was invited to an Atlantic Station Foodie Crawl, it’s always a pleasure being able to share the latest foods and treats with you all. We had 4 stops on our #ASFoodieCrawl tour; Rosa Mexicano, California Pizza Kitchen, Chick-a-Biddy, The Pig & the Pearl. I always find that it’s important to dig deeper into what these restaurants have to offer because, sometimes we overlook a spot just because we don’t know what options are there. Check out the menus from each spot and pics below!
Menus for #ASFoodieCrawl
Our first stop was Rosa Mexicano, now I’m not sure if you’ve had a chance to check this spot out but I can honestly say that they make one of the best Guacamole I’ve ever tasted. The menu is full of flavorful cuisine and awesome cocktails to boot, it’a the perfect dinner or happy hour spot!

CPK Bonus: Butter Cake
I think when most people think of California Pizza Kitchen, they think it’s only about pizza. As you can see above they offer a wide variety of delicious foods for any foodie. As an added bonus we were introduced to the CPK Butter Cake, let me just tell you how SINFULLY good this cake is. I ended up ordering another one the next day because I couldn’t get enough.
Grilled Piri Piri Wings with Cilantro Garlic Sauce
Plantain Chips with Guacamole & Chipotle Hummus
Cocktail: Afternoon Delight
I wasn’t as familiar with Chick-A-Biddy but it’s been on my list of places to try for awhile. I loved the laid back atmosphere and those wings with the cilantro sauce were very tasty. Whether you’re looking for dinner after your movie or just need to grab a midday snack, it’s a great place to dine.
The Pig & the Pearl:
The Pig & The Pearl still seems to be a bit of a hidden gem, but I definitely love it. Every time I’ve been there I’ve had a great experience. They do a lot of specials for wings, oysters, & more so be sure to grab a few friends and get your eat on!
Pimento Cheese Croquettes with pepper jelly and pickled veggie
Buffalo pork rinds with bleu cheese, celery and carrots.
Oysters – three types
Cocktails: Red headed step child with Bombay gin, strawberry, ginger and basil
Patio punch with peach vodka, minty lemonade and pomegranate.
I hope the delicious cuisine above will entice you to grab a bite or drinks soon with friends or family.
