You know you’re somewhere out of the ordinary when you notice the ketchup on your table is…
For the non-Filipinos reading this, here’s a little insight – you will never have more fun than when you find yourself a guest among Filipinos!
They are a nation of party-lovers!
And this cultural spirit carries on over at Max’s, probably the best known Filipino restaurant not only in the Philippines, but in the world.
Here: the house that fried chicken built. This is how the restaurant started 73 years ago, with deep-fried whole chickens. Still served today!
Is it any good?
Well, Max’s Restaurant currently has over 127 branches in the Philippines, so I guess it’s worth a try…
But not only chicken…
Max’s offers a full selection of numerous fantastic and exotic dishes, that most people outside of the Philipines have never tasted – like the above Sinigang Na Hipon, a surprising shrimp soup in tamarind broth.
Or the below pictured Kare Kare, a delicious stew in thick savory peanut sauce!
Max’s can go from simple to sophisticated in its dishes, and thanks to the photos on the menu, and the fluent English of their staff, finding something for everyone is easy even without knowledge of the food.
There are fresh wraps…
…and there are skewered grilled prawns.
They are famous for their set menus – enormously good value for money!
And they also serve elegant entrees:
Overall, the atmosphere is one of fun. You can’t help but smiling and feeling happy at Max’s, because the staff is so genuine, so sincere, and Filipino culture in general makes the people just simply fun-loving individuals, and they have a passion for parties and festivals, and an obsession with singing and dancing!
As does their food!
And that fun I’m talking about – it’s shared with their customers!
If you dine at Max’s and don’t come out feeling happy – and full – something is wrong with you!
For fantastic Filipino food, and a dose of fun Filipino culture, Max’s is the place to try.
And once you’ve tried it, you’ll be going back again and again, until you will learn how to order by pronouncing correctly Pinaputok Na Tiyan Ng Bangus!
Good luck with that!!
