Food is Happiness

Max's Restaurant of Manila

Posted on: March 1, 2013

I rarely ever eat at a Filipino restaurant. Most of the time I eat just home-cooked Filipino at a friend’s house. So when given the chance, I definitely like to jump on the opportunity to try a Filipino restaurant.

This adventure was pretty delicious. My favorite dishes were the crispy pata and the Max’s specialty chicken. Yes, both are fried deliciousness! I went in a big group to order this much food, so I recommend going in a group of four or more. Also, the chicharon is very good too!

If possible, try parking in the parking lot across the street, where it’s free. The valet service here is $1.50– which if you are willing to walk, is unnecessary. The place is also pretty easy to miss, so be on the look out. I passed this place up the first time I drove there with GPS.

For those the curious, the only other Filipino restaurant I’ve had was in San Francisco– Patio Filipino (post).
