Patricia and Ries - Que Pasa

September 13, 2018
Have you been to Que Pasa in the Wilhelminastraat recently? The restaurant has undergone a facelift, which has left it inviting and sparkling. The menu reflects the new élan of the place, with starring roles for the daily specials, the awesome theme nights, the food and wine pairings, the Happy Hours and the gourmet dinner nights.

The kitchen team is headed by chef Ries Helsdingen (34): he knows Que Pasa inside out after 6 years at the helm. Restaurant Manager Patricia Vedder (23) may be young, but she also knows what she’s doing. Her smile lights up the restaurant every evening. Her experience includes a stint in South Africa as well as at the Holiday Inn on Aruba, where she spent 10 months learning everything about running a restaurant. At Que Pasa both Ries and Patricia show off their creativity: Ries with the fresh produce with which he creates innovative dishes and Patricia with ideas about exciting happenings.

In the historic, 100-year old, two-story building, Que Pasa embraces all guests. As soon as you enter, you feel welcome and relaxed. Come as you are or dress up nicely: it doesn’t matter what you wear, as long as you are there. You can sit inside or at the back on the revamped city patio.

So, come in, say hello to everyone on the team and have fun. Because fun is what Que Pasa is all about!
