One of the first Filipino restaurants I ever dined in was Max’s Restaurant, way back in 1986 when I lived in Metro Manila for one year. Twenty eight years later, Max’s Restaurant is still one of my favorite Filipino restaurants. During my weekly visits to SM Mall, I always drop in Max’s for a late lunch or for merienda, a late afternoon snack. It is not only the food I enjoy at Max’s but I also enjoy the service, which is top notch and A # 1! The wait staff are friendly, talkative and they treat you like you are a special customer! Max’s also has ice cold San Miguel Beer.
You don’t have to take out this wonderful treat, as you can order it in the restaurant. Max’s Fried Chicken is not KFC but rather, it is Filipino style fried chicken and I don’t think there is anyone around who can turn out this style of fried chicken better than Max’s!
More Than Just Fried Chicken!
Hands down, the fried chicken at Max’s is their specialty, however, you can also find many other Filipino favorites and also food that expats will surely enjoy!
Pancit Luglug! This savory noodle dish is one of my all time favorites! Garnished with chicharon, boiled egg and kalamansi lime, the sauce is very delicious! You can also order Pancit Luglug with lechon, which is nice slices of roasted pork. It is fabulous!
Max’s Chicken Burger! Now, this is an expat favorite! A fabulous chicken burger and who would not like this? A crispy fried chicken patty, tasty cheese and lettuce on the bun.
I cannot think of a better beverage that goes with fried chicken, a chicken burger or Filipino Cuisine than a San Miguel Light! Or a San Miguel Pale Pilsen. Yes, Max’s has both available!
The next time you want to have lunch, mirenda or dinner, do yourself a favor and head out to Max’s Restaurant-The House That Fried Chicken Built. In Bacolod, Max’s Restaurant is located in the north wing of SM Mall.
Enjoy your food!
I hope to see you one day, somewhere..all around Bacolod!
