Max’s chicken-all-you-can promotion @ P165 was such a big hit, I know. Where else in the world can you get irresistibly good chicken for a little more than $3 in an eat-till-you-drop fashion? Before the promo closed, I made sure to eat with three of my male officemates in Max’s Ma. Orosa branch in Ermita. Luckily, this was a secluded location and not as crowded as the others. This time around, it was nice taking a shot of the bones after we devoured all the chicken 😀
Now, Max’s is having a promo again, albeit in a smaller fashion. Diners will be treated to a free serving of rice and a glass of Pepsi if they order any of the two main dishes that the resto recently introduced.
You gotta try their chicken caldereta, a richly-flavored tomato-based stew traditionally garnished with potatoes, carrots, green peas and red & green bell pepper. I like my sauces, and I found this so yummy that am thinking of going back to Max’s again to savor this.
The second dish, pork binagoongan, should appeal to people who like the combination of sweet, spicy and salty in their dishes. This is a classic Filipino pork dish cooked in shrimp paste. I appreciate the Max’s version because it’s topped with sliced green mangoes, garnished with tomato wedges, served on a bed of fried eggplant and finally sprinkled with green onions. Looks so special, right?
Max’s says the chicken caldereta and pork binagoongan are part of the heirloom recipes of Nanay Ruby, the restaurant’s first cook who developed the recipe for Max’s sarap to the bone chicken. Order them today at any Max’s Restaurant nationwide, or call the Max’s delivery hotline 7-9000. Better yet, join the Max’s fan page on Facebook to be updated on the latest promos.
Spotted in Max’s Glorietta 3: the Max’s waiters that we saw in the chicken-all-you-can ads. Holy Schmoly, they’re real! 😀
