[April 10, 2000] Looking for Filipino delicacies and have
them delivered to you? Pinoydelikasi.com, an online delicacy
store offers a variety of delicious mouthwatering Filipino
delicacies delivered right at your doorstep. It offers a fast
and convenient way to purchase Filipino delicacies.
Lisette Cipriano VP of Pinoydelikasi.com said that the idea
behind the name Pinoydelikasi is "Lutong Pinoy, Delicious
Kasi!". That's Pinoydelikasi if it were expressed completely.
"Lutong pinoy or Filipino cuisine is composed of dishes,
sweets, and pastries of great variety as the regions of the
Philippine archipelago itself," said Cipriano. "And
its taste comprises many qualities, but all sum up to one
word - delicious!"
Pinoydelikasi aims to share this taste to as many people
as possible. Why? Cipriano explained, "The reason is
simple- because (because in Filipino is "kasi")
Filipino's cooked and baked products are so delicious that
you have to taste them all yourself.
Pinoydelikasi.com's prices are competitive with those at
local makets. Unlike local stores, the consumer will be less
inclined to impulse buying. Product such as dried mangoes,
dried pusit, danggit, papaya, are here. Cipriano intends to
offer all kinds of local delicacy in his site soon.
For first time shoppers, use the Express Lane feature of
the site, which simply allows the buyer to type in the quantity
with minimum of five items of delicacy, fill out the form,
and hit 'Express Lane'. It is better to place orders before
5 PM on a Friday so the buyer can schedule or reserve a delivery
time for Wednesday the week after. Place the preferred schedule
of delivery at the "Additional Information" section
of the order form. Pinoydelikasi.com delivers seven days a
week, from morning to evening. Before an order can leave the
store for delivery, it is carefully checked for accuracy and
A trained, uniformed Pinoydelikasi.com messenger will deliver
the orders right to buyers door. While the payment can be
on cash or by bank transfer. Cipriano said that it will soon
have an online payment facility.
