It’s just a few days away from Thanksgiving, and while the holidays are all about tradition, some years there may be an inkling for some change. Follow that whisper to Max’s of Manila this Thursday and feast on an array of Filipino fare at its Thanksgiving Brunch Buffet from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The buffet presents breakfast, soups, salads, appetizers, hot entrees, desserts and drinks for just $27.75 for adults and $15.50 for keiki 10 and under.

Among the hot entree pickings is Embutido ($12.50 a la carte), or Filipino meatloaf, which is stuffed with hot dog, hard boiled egg, raisins, relish and various veggies.
