TikTok star Jerry Yguerabide taking over San Antonio restaurant for one night – mySA

A million TikTok users know Jerry Yguerabide for his approachable cooking tutorials. Later this month, about 40 people will have the chance to eat the food that made the San Antonio man a TikTok sensation. Yguerabide is the featured chef for Sari Sari Supper Club’s June 26 dinner. 

The last time we spoke to Yguearbide in March 2021, the TikTok culinary master had 600,000 followers and was prepping the idea of starting his own concept as an homage to his grandma. More than a year later, Yguerabide’s following has grown to more than a million followers on TikTok alone, and his idea for his own business, Mesa de Magdalena, is just months out from opening.

Each month, the recently opened Sari Sari Supper Club, owned by husband and wife restaurateurs Adrian and Camille de Los Reyes, invites local chefs to take over their kitchen for one night. Guests who snag tickets meet the chef throughout the night, mingle with fellow diners, and enjoy a curated menu with drinks. Live entertainment is usually on the menu for the evening as well.

For Yguerabide’s night, he will be serving a sneak peek of his upcoming food truck’s offerings. He’ll prepare the following six-course menu for guests: red pork tamales with green and red salsa with micro cilantro; chicken chicharron meatballs with crispy garlic and apple-guajillo glaze; braised pork belly with strawberry habanero coulis served with cherries stuffed with goat cheese; heirloom tomato crab salad with pickled peppers, cilantro lime ravagoat, and garlic chili oil; arroz con pollo, bomba rice, braised chicken, fried potatoes, tomatoes, and puffed sorghum chicken jus; and sweet corn flan topped with heirloom popcorn, carmel, and gold flakes.

Camille de Los Reyes says mariachi serenades will accentuate the evening. 

Yguerabide is looking forward to sharing some of the flavors he’s been teaching TikTok users with an in-person crowd. 

“It will be a unique experience,” he tells MySA. “For the very first time, people will get to taste a piece of Mesa de Magdalena. It’s going to be a memorable night.”

The food truck, named in honor of his grandmother, will be ready for a September grand opening, Yguerabide adds. He says he’s starting small, but anticipates the concept growing into a “huge venture.”

While Yguerabide’s special night will bring Mexican-inspired fare to Sari Sari Supper Club, the SeaWorld-area concept serves Filipino food for lunch and dinner throughout the week. The De Los Reyes also recently launches a Saturday and Sunday brunch menu.

Camille de Los Reyes says the restaurant will add Tuesdays to their hours of operation starting in July. Sari Sari Supper Club is currently open Wednesday through Sunday. You can find the restaurant at 10234 Hwy. 151.
