Update: Que Ricas will be opening on Wednesday, December 18th!
A new restaurant specializing in South American fare such as empanadas and arepas will be opening at 46A Haddon Avenue in Westmont in early October.
Que Ricas announced on Facebook today that it will be “opening soon” with “a menu that caters to meat lovers, vegans, and the gluten-free community as well as featuring many locally sourced and organic ingredients.”
Haddon Township resident Sahar Soleymani comes from a family who has been in the restaurant business for over 40 years. They owned and operated long-standing Skyler’s Hoagies in Mount Laurel until they sold it earlier this year.
Soleymani explains, “We have always done delis and cheesesteak places but it was time to have something that represents who we are, and serve food that we feel good serving to the community.”
The menu at Que Ricas will feature treasured recipes passed down on her mother’s side of the family.
In addition to traditional South American cuisine, they will be doing Philly/Latin twists like the “Jawn” which is a Philly cheesesteak empanada and will be working on a porkroll, egg and cheese arepa.
The space is currently under construction so they are targeting a grand opening sometime between August and October.
More details as they become available. In the meantime, follow Que Ricas on Facebook where they will share a full menu soon.
