Filipino favorite shutters upscale San Antonio supper club after 2 years
After two years in business, a standard-bearer for international cuisine is closing. On December 3, Sari Sari Supper Club owners Adrian and Camille De Los Reyes took to social media to share that they were shuttering their upscale Filipino restaurant following service on December 23.
The supper club opened on the Far West Side in December 2021 as an offshoot of the De Los Reyes’ popular eatery and market. A project born out of the pandemic, the restaurant expanded the lexicon of Filipino fare while staying true to family traditions and established ingredients.
Along the way, the eatery attracted critical acclaim. Guests were especially drawn to the communal monthly supper club experience that traversed the versatility of Filipino fare and the global influences brought by colonization and the country’s Asian neighbors.
The couple did not detail the reasons for the closure, only characterizing the move as a “hard decision” made with “heartfelt gratitude and deep sadness.”
“We are thankful to have served many wonderful meals, have had delightful conversations, and have celebrated many joyous occasions in this space, but the time has come to say goodbye,” they wrote.
The De Los Reyes’ other ventures, including the restaurant on Wurzbach Road and the Stone Oak market, will remain open. In addition, Jeepney Street Eats, the food truck concept serving fusion Filipino favorites like lumpia and crispy fried wings, will continue operations. Most recently, it began a residence at Grayson Street’s new SA Yacht Club development.
Fans can also look forward to a final supper club on December 10 in collaboration with Botika chef Geronimo Lopez. The $85 prix fixe includes a suckling pig cooked on a caja de china, dulce de leche churros, and Pinoy Pancit, a noodle dish.
