It’s Max’s of Manila’s 74th anniversary, and the restaurant will offer its Max’s Fried Chicken at 50 percent off on Tuesday,
Oct. 22 for the whole day. This offer is good for takeout or dine-in with no limit, shares Maly San Luis, general manager of Max’s of Manila in Hawaii.
Established in the Philippines in 1945 by Maximo Gimenez, the eatery serves the finest in traditional Filipino food. Max’s of Manila has two Hawaii locations, one in Waipahu and another on Dillingham Boulevard in Honolulu.
Max’s Fried Chicken (regular price $15.95, promo price $7.98) is crispy — with no breading — on the outside, and tender and juicy on the inside.
Another popular order at Max’s is the Lumpiang Shanghai ($9.25), a Filipino-style egg roll. It’s stuffed with a filling mixture of ground pork and vegetables, enveloped in a pastry wrap, and then deep-fried.They are served with sweet and sour sauce.
Another poultry dish at Max’s is the Chicken Sisig ($11.75). It includes diced Max’s chicken and liver mixed with celery and onion. It is seasoned with a special sauce and served on a sizzling platter.
Besides chicken liver, Max’s also offers pork cheek, pork belly, beef, bangus fish belly and tofu sisig choices. San Luis explains that Filipino sisig dishes were made famous in the United States by celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.
Guests at Max’s also adore the zesty flavor of the eatery’s Adobo Fried Rice ($12.50). The rice is seasoned with classic adobo-flavored shredded pork, specks of black pepper and bits of garlic. It’s all topped with chopped tomato, salted egg and green onion.
Additionally, tack on something different like Crispy Pata (pork knuckle) or Kare Kare (beef and oxtail peanut stew).
