Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet ($8.95)

It’s always bound to be the fiesta of all Filipino fiestas at Max’s of Manila. Located on Dillingham Boulevard and in Waipahu Shopping Plaza, this favorite establishment brings a taste of the Philippines to our Island home.

While dishes such as Crispy Pata, Lumpiang Shanghai, Sisig and Pork Adobo are signature items off the menu, Max’s of Manila can’t help but revel in its new Max’s Lunch Specials.

Now served Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., these lunch specials are perfect for those on the go. With six specials to choose from (at $8.95 each, dine-in or takeout), including Chicken Adobo, Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet, Tenderloin Tips, Pork Adobo, Seafood in Coconut Milk and Vegetarian Special, Max’s offers complete meals that are well worth your buck.

“We only recently started offering these lunch specials, but it’s been doing very well. A lot of students and the younger generations have been liking it,” says Elizabeth Joven, operations manager of the Dillingham branch.

All lunch specials come with steamed or garlic rice; choice of side dish such as Lumpiang Shanghai, Veggie Crunch or tossed salad; and choice of soft drink. For dessert, enjoy a scoop of tropical ice cream for $1 more, or a mini Buko Pandan for an additional $2.50.

“You receive high-quality food for a good price,” Joven adds.

With 127 branches in the Philippines, two branches in Dubai, two in Canada and eight branches in the U.S., we’re lucky to have Max’s to call our own. Max’s of Manila is slated to open six more restaurants in the Philippines and four additional international branches.

So, when it’s a home-cooked Filipino meal that you can’t live without, you’ll find it all at Max’s of Manila.
