Its a great time for us to talk and eat while preparing ourselves to face another busy week. Being fortunate enough, by a research, we discovered an interesting place.
Located at Quezon St, Tondo Manila, we found Big Slice Pizza that offers genuine and high quality pizza at very affordable price. Probably, your first question is how does it taste. Well, the taste went above and beyond expectations making us excited to be back soon!

A PASSIONATE CHEF BY HEART
A 43-year old engineer, Mr. Eldie de Castro have been able to maintain and develop his recipe for three years now. He started selling his pizza for the store inside university of "Pamantasang Lungsod ng Maynila" and currently supplying stocks for another store inside "Espiritu Santo Parochial School". Having a proffession away from culinary, Mr. Eldie was able to create his own recipe thru research, help from his loving wife and prayers to Almighty God. He is a man devoted to his family with outstanding courage to challenge status quo that has been providing him rows of growth development and innovations. What a man!
The menu offers 8 different flavors of pizza. Mr. Eldie recommended us to have the "Four Flavors" tasted since we are newbies. This choice is clever because it combines four different flavors of pizza in one plate. (Ham and Cheese, Pepperoni, Hawaian and Beef mushroom)
What makes it more clever is you will have an opportunity to compare each other and gets to choose your favorite pizza.
* My friends and I chose to have beef mushroom and hawaian as winners among four.
The crunchy base, followed by distinctive layer of soft bread with cheesy palette of zesty spices that gently dances with the juicy sounds of meat swishing inside your mouth is what makes their pizza to become outstanding.
Four flavor pizza together with creamy carbonara
All the ingredients are fresh and cooked directly from Mr. Eldie's kitchen while the dough is an original recipe that went under certain studies and experimental works to achieve the tasty texture and mouthwatering effect. Mr. Eldie have truly set the standard at how to passionately make these products and baked to perfection.
Besides from pizza, the store also offers pasta, burger, fries and frappé.Look how genuine the amount of pasta they serve:
Creamy and Cheesy Carbonara paired with garlic bread
From the outside, rows of detectable double-decked furnitures can be seen. But as we enter the door, the atmosphere began to change.
Those double-decks are like mini rooms where everybody sits like an indian.
The place also have frames containing scriptures from the bibble
The wallpaper is inspired by spring when all flowers get to bloom and what makes it more interesting is seeing a table at the center making an ambiance similar to my favorite korean novela. If I will have 3 words to describe, it will be:
Thru conversation, we found out that the concept of the place is belongs to the idea of Mr.&Mrs. De Castro's children. It is amazing knowing how each member of the family contributes to build a nice and millenial-inspired business like this.
