With 175 locations worldwide, the iconic and well-known Max’s of Manila has not only introduced people all over the globe to Asian and native Filipino cuisine, but has also served as a “home away from home” for many Filipino food connoisseurs and devotees.

The restaurant had its humble start in Quezon City, Philippines in 1945 where American troops, stationed in the Philippines after World War II, used it as a casual stomping ground to visit their good friend Maximo Gimenez, the restaurant’s founder.

Max’s of Manila was founded on family, friends, shared stories and home cooked meals, and all of its locations are still sustained by those very elements. A cultural institution in its own right, Max’s offers customers delicious meals packed with tradition, tastiness and togetherness all in one.


Max’s Holiday Tray Medley ($65) is a carefully catered, deliciously prepared, filled-to-the-brim platter good for six to eight hungry individuals. Available for takeout only, the dish consists of six pieces of Max’s famous fried chicken, two variants of Pancit noodles (with choices of Canton, Bihon, Miki Bihon or Palabok), six pork barbecue skewers and 20 pieces of Lumpiang Shanghai. This mountainous delectable concoction will be available to order until Jan. 5.
