The Best Food At Max's Restaurant Aside From Fried Chicken
They have other delicious items on the menu, too!
The very first thing you'll think of when you're at any Max's Restaurant branch is a serving of their Max's Fried Chicken. It's almost automatic to prepare the dip for this popular fried chicken which is a combination of banana ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce if you like it spicy.
But the Max's Fried Chicken isn't the only delicious item on the restaurant's menu. There are other food items that deserve your attention, maybe even more so. Curious?
Here are the best food to order at Max's Restaurant aside from Max's Fried Chicken:
Sizzling Tofu (P344)
The Sizzling Tofu may be the second most popular item off of Max's menu! If you haven't tried this delicious no-meat dish just yet, you will love the crisp deep-fried cubes of tofu tossed in a delicious salty-tangy mayo-based sauce. It's finished off with some chilies for an appetizing color and touch of heat.
This dish is great to order as a side dish, maybe alongside the Max's Fried Chicken but this is delicious on its own, too. Pair it with plain rice and you've got yourself a delicious and filling meatless meal. For solo eating, opt for Max's Tofu Bowl (P229)!
All Beef Kare-Kare (price starts at P321)
If you're the type who just loves meat, the All Beef Kare-Kare is a great 10/10 choice. Max's Restaurant's take on this classic dish has a thick peanut sauce that's made meaty with fork-tender beef chucks, oxtail, tripe, ox skin, and a medley of vegetables drizzled with annatto oil, and then topped with chopped peanuts and spring onion for more flavor and crunch. Of course, it isn't kare-kare without a serving of bagoong on the side.
Max's Restaurant also has a Vegetable Kare-Kare (P425), just in case you're trying to avoid meat!
Fresh Lumpiang Ubod (P137)
In a country of lumpia fanatics, the lumpiang Shanghai isn't the only spring roll that deserves love, and Max's Restaurant's proves this with their delicious Fresh Lumpiang Ubod. The restaurant's take on this lumpia is made with an egg crepe stuffed with julienned slices of fresh coconut heart, pork, shrimp, and crabmeat.
One of the best things about this type of lumpia is the flavorful sauce that gives it bold flavors: garlicky, nutty, and sweet. Make sure you get the addicting sauce in every bite!
Buko Pandan (price starts at P79)
When it comes to dessert, Pinoys love their buko pandan so it only makes sense that a Filipino restaurant like Max's Restaurant has this creamy dessert on the menu! They have a classic, no-fail approach to this dessert. They use coconut meat, green gelatin, sago pearls, pandan, and a sweet cream mixture.
Just in case you didn't know, Max's Restaurant now offers this dessert in a good-for-sharing tub. They even have a tub that's good for 10 people!
Caramel Bar (price starts at P150)
Who can ever forget Max's Corner Bakery's bestselling Caramel Bar? It's a dessert that doesn't need any introduction. The reason why the restaurant's bakery's Caramel Bars are so popular is that it has just the right amount of sweetness to satisfy the needs of anyone with a sweet tooth. It's almost impossible to just have one bite-sized, nut-studded Caramel Bar.
