was born out of a passion to promote the culture and traditions of Bicol Region's (Philippines) culture and traditions through food.
Our story starts in 2019 when our movement to share the region’s heritage has uncovered a shared pursuit of discovering what eating well and what truly good food means to different people. Read more>
Our spirit of discovery is kept alive by every single thing we craft - from our Bicolano recipes with a twist to our masterfully-flavored Pili nuts collection.
We take pride in our culinary traditions while continuing to push the boundaries of what delights the Filipino palate. We craft dreams and impact communities through taste, travel, and tale-tellings.
Today, Que Rica stands to write the story of the Philippine Pili Nut in the global food scene.
At Que Rica, we celebrate the provenance and rarity of each nut: grown wild in mineral-rich volcanic soils under unique weather conditions. Our premium Pili Nuts are packed at the source, hand-harvested, crafted in small batches, and masterfully-flavored in French copper cookware.
Each nut shares the story of a community of local farmers, masterful hands, and a nation of fine taste.
At Que Rica, community matters above all.
We devote a huge portion of our time finding ways to give back .
Through efforts such as FLEET OF HOPE where we help raise funds to provide bancas (fishing boats) for fisher folks in Bicol, Philippines, we deliver.
