Lunch at Max's

There are so many restaurants nowadays and I still have a long list of places to visit for food trip but we cannot deny that there are times you just want to revisit your go-to restaurants.

For Filipino restaurants, we like Max’s. We dined here two weeks ago, my husband just came back from Brunei that time and namiss niyang kumain. Hehehe! Brunei was very strict in following Ramadan so even tourists or visitors need to follow, so bawal din mag-eat and drink or else you will pay penalty. Pwede siguro but not in public and if you can find restaurants that will serve food. 

Anyway, we ordered Kare-Kare, Lumpiang Shanghai, Rice, Leche Flan and Mango Cream Dessert. It was our first time to try Mango Cream Dessert, it is like eating mango float with different texture. My husband liked it but I still prefer the Leche Flan na habang tumatagal, lumiliit ang serving size. lol

Update October 2019

Two weeks ago, my husband and I went to SM to do some errands. I need to buy some school supplies and I used the PHP50 discount coupon from Donate a Book Drive that I got a few months ago. After doing our errands, it was time for lunch so we ate at Max’s because we have PHP500 Max’s Gift Certificate. It was part of the freebies when we bought our gas range last July.

Tipid Tips: Keep and don’t forget to use your free coupons or gift certificate. This is a big help lalo na pag wala ka na budget pero nagugutom ka.

It’s been a while since the last time we ate here so we were checking the menu to see if there is something new. And voila, aside from the usual combo meals, they are now offering rice bowls. Parang hindi ko ito napansin last February. Anyway, we ordered Platter Meal, Max’s Spicy Tofu Rice Bowl and Dessert Sampler.

Platter Meal - A quarter of a fried chicken, rice, pancit canton, caramel bar and drinks.
Max’s Spicy Tofu Rice Bowl - Deep fried tofu cubes tossed in spicy cream sauce.
Dessert Sampler - buko pandan, ube creme decadence, leche flan and cream cheese brownie a la mode.


  1. I don't know what happened but after some years of not eating at Max's and going back there again, I think the food was costly than how they used to be was and also, the delicious Max's before is different now. Those are just my thoughts.

    1. Yes, the price is a little bit higher and kumokonti ang serving. Kuya J is cheaper than Max's.

  2. Awwww i miss Maxs Aroz Caldo!! And I heard that the unli chicken is back!!! Wooooo! Cant wait!
