With over 127 branches in the Philippines, Max's in Abreeza is one of the most recent restaurants to be added into the brand's growing list. My recent dinner at Max's isn't my first time, but it is for a long time. I can remember during the 90's that there was a Max's branch in SM City Davao but it closed and then returned to Davao in Abreeza when the mall opened last year. Hence, this is another opportunity for the famous fried chicken restaurant to appeal to this generation's discerning taste for fried chicken, especially given that there are a wide array of options for restaurants specializing in this particular dish (in a wide range of prices, too).
We started off our meal with this Cream of Mushroom Soup. This is one of my favorite soups of all time, including seafood chowder. Max's version is rich and creamy. If only the waiter could remember to serve it with its own dedicated spoon, this meal would have started off on a better note.
The Basic Meal set is a yet satisfying combination of the famous Max's fried chicken (quarter size), steamed rice, and a caramel bar. This meal set also comes with free drinks. I opted for their Iced Tea. This fried chicken is arguably one of the best I've tasted - crispy on the outside, yet juicy and savory on the inside.
Chicken Barbecue Meal
If you have a bigger appetite, the Chicken Barbecue Meal is a good option at Max's. This meal set consists of two pieces of chicken (leg and thigh portions) that are flame grilled to get that tangy barbecue flavor. Max's chicken barbecue is notable, though, because it is soft on the inside despite having that char-grilled effect on the surface. This, too, comes with its own free drink.
