Pancit Sisig, anyone? While it may sound unconventional at first, you will soon find yourself craving more of this from Big 5, the newest food delivery and takeout service in the metro.
Big 5 is the brainchild of five like-minded entrepreneurs Ivan Zalameda, Mike Tayag, Billy Villareal, John Co and Jeff Co – the first three of whom have seen success in the F&B industry being behind household names such as BESO Cucina Vinoteka, Draft Gastropub, Imperial Ice Bar, Tambayan Gastropub among others, while the latter two are bringing in their creative and financial acumen to the fold.
“Filipinos love to eat, whether at home or in the workplace. What Big 5 aims to do is to provide them with great options for delivery or take-out that is fast, affordable and most of all, good. We’re especially looking at two markets – the office crowd and families who have no time to cook,” said Ivan Zalameda, one of Big 5’s founders.
“Our quantities come in small, medium and large sizes to cater to different groups, and we also have a well-curated menu of heirloom recipes from Pampanga,” Zalameda shared.
Its flagship products are the Pancit Platters which provide a twist to the usual fare: Pancit Sisig, Palabok, Pancit Pata, Cheesy Baked Mac and Pinoy Spaghetti. For meat, Big 5 offers Fried Liempo, Butterific Fried Chicken and Sisig from Pampanga. It also has different versions of lumpia and Big 5 balls, which are all available in chicken, pork and longganisa variants. To finish, Big 5 is excited to offer its flavored Butchi which come in White Chocolate, ChocNut, Sweet Cheese, Custard & Red Egg and Ube flavors. The best part is that it all comes at very affordable prices.
“Whether in the office or at home, dining is an experience shared between people, and we want to help make that experience even more gastronomic and unforgettable,” Zalameda said.
BIG 5 is currently located at G/F PhilPlans Corporate Center in BGC with plans to expand to Alabang, Makati, Mandaluyong and Quezon City.
