We’re bringing back #YSCravings for a very special (and very late) Chinese New Year treat

I’ll let you in on a little (open) secret. At Young STAR, we like to eat. We’re obsessed with food, no question about it. We’re always on the lookout for the next best yum-yum to put in our tum-tums, sometimes going as far as approaching our favorite food joints to ask them to make something that will have us drooling even more (yeah, we’re sadists this way).

Our first and second #YSCravings collaborations happened four years ago (man, remember that?!) with Cupcakes by Sonja and Sweet Ecstasy. This time around, we teamed up with the food ninjas at Idiot Sandwich to create the Young Idiot Sandwich. Headed by cool couple Trisha Katipunan and Chris Cataluna, Idiot Sandwich has been filling hungry stomachs all over Poblacion, Makati for a while now, and this was the  right time to get together and make a delicious thing happen.

Nice to meat you: Get your fill of the Young Idiot Sandwich, our newest #YSCravings collab with Idiot Sandwich, at The Social on Ebro, Poblacion.

And since Chinese New Year is still (well, was) around the corner, what better way to collaborate than to make a pork sandwich for the Year of the Pig? I mean, it’s right there; how could we not? So we put a couple of luscious pork slabs over some peanut-flavored (by way of sesame oil) slaw, added some special sauces, and bam. Capital-Y Yum.

We threw a small party at the Idiot Sandwich stall at The Social on Ebro to launch the ‘wich, but you can get a taste starting today for P300 until supplies last. Oh, and did we mention it comes with stickers? Grab a tote at P200 while you’re at it, too.



Idiot Sandwich is located in The Social on Ebro, Ebro street, Poblacion, Makati City. They are open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 6-11 p.m. Follow them on social media at @idiotsandwich_ph.
