Can't believe that after all these years, we just had our first Max's date last weekend! Hahaha!
I think that Max's has been the most successful Filipino restaurant chain. It has not changed it's chicken recipe since 1945; still "sarap to the bones!".
They serve an array of Filipino dishes alongside their famous fried chicken. They have soup, salad, vegetables, beef, pork, seafood, and noodles. They also serve all day breakfast, sandwiches, snack, and desserts. Whether just eating for one (combo meals) or for a big group (per table set menu), everybody is welcome.
For appetizer, we had Kamote Fries. You can opt to eat it on it as is, or sprinkle sugar on top.
I ordered Chicken Dinner Meal (soup of the day, half chicken, rice, drink, ice cream) and bf ordered Spring Chicken Meal (soup of the day, half chicken, rice, drink, caramel bar).
We also tried Adobong Kangkong Stuffed Tofu, one of their newest offerings. It was really yummy!!!
I also liked their bottomless Sago't Gulaman.
I would like to share with you how to typically eat their fried chicken. You'll notice that it is not served with any gravy. It is delicious enough to eat on it's own, however I like to add some sauce with mine. I'm not sure if everyone knows about this but the best sauce combination: banana ketchup and worcestershire sauce! It can be found in every table. Add a bit of hot sauce if you desire.
Max's has been part of every Filipino household. It has been with us even before all of these fancy restaurants showed up. It has seen every birthday, every wedding, nearly any celebration. It is truly The House That Fried Chicken Built.
