It has been close to two years since Rita’s Italian ice closed at 1352-56 E. Passyunk Ave. We had spotted some activity there back in January, but since then there have been few signs of what’s to come.
A neighborhood tipster spotted signage for a supermarket called El Paisano that will be coming to the location.
The Mexican joint La Lupe at 9th and Federal is giving way to a place called El Paisano Express Food.
Workers have been sprucing up the restaurant for a few weeks now, replacing the awning and painting the facade. We couldn’t find any information about the place online, and there was a bit of a language barrier when we stopped by.
But from the list of offerings along the awning, it appears this place will cover a lot of bases.
