Five or six big scoops of Jasmine rice are served on a plate to be shared with your colleagues or family who also attends the dinner.
Max’s special fried chicken is among the well-loved dish by Filipinos and even non-Filipinos. It is a whole chicken minus the head cut in the half. It is well done on the inside and very crispy on the outside. Pancit palabok is a noodle dish with shrimp sauce that is topped with boiled pork, cooked shrimp, fish flakes, fried tofu, friend garlic, scallions and crushed chicharron. You can partner it with a cold climate.
Pinakbet is a vegetable dish while crispy pata is a pork knuckle deep fried which makes the skin crispy on the outside but the meat is very tender on the inside. Chicken adobo is another big hitter in Max’s Manila as it not only has captured the heart of Filipino people but also the heart of non-nationals. Chicken adobo is a chicken marinated in bay leaves, shoyu, a little vinegar and garlic. This is indeed very delicious.
If you’re a vegetarian, the ensaladang kangkong is a great option. The blanched ong choi stems are crispy while the shoyu-based dressing and tomatoes juicy are tasty and well balanced. When you try their pork sisig, you will realize that it is unlike anything your parents or you had ever tasted before. What’s more is that you will really get a stomach to eat the Bicol express, Miki bihon, crabmeat rice, sinigang and kare-kare as they are quite hearty to have for your meal.
For dessert, you can have ice cream/shaved ice or halo-halo that are very tasty and can be bought at an affordable price. Aside from having mouthwatering dishes and desserts to complete your day, Max’s Manila has professional chefs or cooks and servers.
