Though I wasn’t impressed, Max’s chicken was still sarap to the bones..
Before watching the movie Source Code, me and my brothers decided to have dinner at Max’s Restaurant in SM Tarlac. I was quite disappointed eating in this restaurant though Max’s is one of my favorite Pinoy restos since I was a kid. Not only they would NOT let me take pictures of the restaurant’s facade, some of the food we ordered were also a little cold and dry.
I ordered the usual Max’s Platter Meal for me and my brother while my other brother had the Max’s Fiesta Plate Meal.
The Max’s Platter Meal consists of 1/4 regular fried chicken, pancit canton, a choice of rice or rolls, iced tea, caramel bar. The chicken was good but the pancit was a little cold.
The Max’s Fiesta Plate Meal consists of 1/4 regular fried chicken, fresh lumpia, a choice rice or rolls, iced tea, caramel bar.
We also got the Sizzling Tofu which did not really sizzle when served to us.
And we also got the Steamed Fish Fillet in Light Soy. It was not the same fish fillet recipe I usually have in most Chinese restos. I thought the light soy meant light soy sauce but the fish fillet was actually topped by a gravy-like sauce whose taste I did not find amusing.
I dunno if I am ever coming back this Max’s branch. Other Max’s branches are awesome but this one I find a little disappointing. This is the second time I have been here and the first time I was in this resto it was a little packed that we weren’t served very well. Oh well, that was months ago. And even if the experience wasn’t that awesome, I still need to post my tagline.
Spread some awesome..ness..
