Ben’s Independent Grocer (B.I.G.) – Malaysia’s pioneer in premium grocery shopping, has opened its doors at Plaza Batai. “Little Big”, as it is fondly known, will add a new lively and interactive shopping experience to the Damansara Heights and neighbouring communities.
At 17,000 sq ft, the relatively compact store is about one-third the size of it’s bigger brother at Publika but maintains a strong selection of products and produce.
Little Big is divided into several sections including Botanical Produce (fruits & vegetables), Barn Butchery, Bay Seafood, Malaya Kitchen (local ingredients) and S.wine Deli – just to name a few. A Cheese Room, which emulates a French fromagerie is located at the center of the store and it offers a unique selection of seasonal cheeses from around the world.
B.I.G.’s Eat.Drink.Shop. concept is very much alive at the Plaza Batai outpost with a variety of dining options. For a quick pick-me-up, you can head to Plan B roasters which can be seen as soon as you enter the supermarket. To complete the coffee experience, pair your drink with a fresh, daily made pastry or bread from B.Read just next door.
Ben’s General Food Store located at the opposite end of the grocer houses a wide array of brands each with their own unique cuisine and expertise. Their signature fresh salads, spit roast chicken and pizzas, to a new range of modern tapas, seafood and shuck-to-order oysters will make a perfect gathering spot for your family and friends.
For a night to remember, head to Beauty & the Beast for juicy steaks, lobsters, hearty burgers and exquisite cocktails. Mark your calendar and keep an ear out, as the venue will debut at the end of this month.
At the opening party last night, The BIG Group founder Benjamin Yong said he was delighted with the new opening, not only because they are able to bring the B.I.G. experience to a new audience, but the exciting challenge it presents. The grocery has spent a great deal of effort in sourcing products and working on ideas that would appease the new customers’ expectations.
Then it’s time to indulge in good food and drinks! Now I know what goes down at a premium supermarket’s launching event: you get to taste some of the best products like fresh oysters, juicy Australian lamb cutlets, foie gras, sashimi and premium imported ice creams. And not to mention the free flow of beer, wine and champagne – it only made the night better.
