Max’s — the immensely popular Filipino cuisine eatery with locations along Dillingham Boulevard and in the Waipahu Shopping Plaza — now offers Chicken Chicharon ($5.95) on its menu. The crispy chicken-skin dish is similar to Filipino favorite Pork Chicharon — also known as pork rinds — and comes served with a vinegar garlic dip. Talk about a chicken-skin moment.

The Chicken Chicharon can also be found in one of Max’s new take-out packages that go perfectly with a day at the beach, or family get-together. The KO Package ($15.99) features some of the restaurant’s favorite finger foods and includes 16 pieces of chicken (legs and thighs), Lumpiang Shanghai and the Chicken Chicharon. The Quick Picnic Package ($26.99) includes Max’s Whole Chicken, Lumpiang Shanghai and a choice of Pancit all bundled in one of Max’s Eco Bags.

Also, Max’s Teasers ($7.95) offers a pupu sampler for diners with hearty servings of Lumpiang Shanghai and Calamares — both the rings and tentacles — along with zesty dipping sauces. The Tokwa con Lechon ($9.95) is a stir-fry dish composed of fried pork belly, tofu cubes, onions and bell peppers tossed in a soy vinaigrette sauce.
