Max’s Fried Chicken, a classic Filipino dish
When I was much younger, every Manila trip would not be complete without a meal at Max’s Fried Chicken Restaurant. It was always a feast of sorts. We’d order Chicken, Pancit, or any of their delicious dishes. Each one complements the chicken well. As I grew older, my friends and I would do the same. This time usually ordering chicken with sinful Crispy Pata or Kare-Kare.
No doubt about it, Max’s brings to mind memories of home-cooked meals shared with relatives and friends. And with that in mind, Max’s has designed the Max’s 4Sharing Meals that are meant to be shared among four family members or friends.
Max’s recently launched their Beef 4Sharing Meals. It consists of 1 Whole Fried Chicken, Adobong Beef sa Gata or Beef Kaldereta, 4 cups of Rice, and 4 glasses of Iced Tea. All for the price of PhP 899. This definitely makes the Max’s dining experience easier to manage.

I was able to try both the Adobong Beef sa Gata (Beef stewed in coconut milk) and the Beef Kaldereta (Filipino Beef Stew in Tomato Sauce). And I must say both go really well with the chicken. After all, Max’s creates and serves only dishes that goes well with their chicken. Both also have rich sauces and generous servings of beef.
Between the two, my top pick is the Adobong Beef sa Gata. First off, I’m a fan of gata (coconut milk). And I definitely love all kinds of beef stew. Combine the two together and you will find me very, very happy. Max’s Adobong Beef sa Gata has a rich, mildly spicy sauce with generous chunks of beef and some sayote (chayote) to add a bit of crunchiness and freshness. Plus, I sense a hint of vinegar (the base for all adobo) which cuts through the richness. It’s a unique take on adobo which is usually made with pork or chicken. In some regions, adobo is made with gata and I find that very yummy. So this one is a really, really good version of the very Filipino adobo.

If there’s more of you in the group, it’s easy to order an additional dish or another 4Sharing Set. So what are you waiting for? Celebrate those bonding moments with family or friends over a 4Sharing Meal at Max’s Fried Chicken Restaurant.
