Max's Fried Chicken Lipa City, Philippines Aug 18, 2012

Cassandra, Alithea and Andrea say Cheese at Max's Lipa
I work hard and I also eat hard :) So today, I decided to fulfill my promise to my children to take them out to Max's Restaurant Lipa City, in JP Laurel Highway, Barangay Sabang, just beside SM Lipa when I win another one of those online contests.

I've been a happy father for 10 years now and one thing's for sure, when children grow - they eat more!

All 6 of us fit inside the tricycle, including baby Hannah, thanks to yours truly's careful planning and geometrical proficiency. ;P

Alex was being introspective... Probably wondering
what he'll eat.
I felt a little shy entering the premises since most of the people who go inside - came with cars. Having the tricycle go up the ramp feels a little too provenzano but what the heck I don't have a car sooo - "Mah! Para!"

Max's Lipa City has their own building so medyo dyahe pag naka tricycle ka lang. Pag nasa SM ka - no one could tell the difference if you came in using a tricycle or a Pajero :D

We had the chicken re-done since I didn't really want to feed my children chicken with some blood in it. I don't know if Max's does chicken raw nowadays, but I guess now you have to tell them - to make it well done.


All in all, our experience was "okay". I guess talagang mas masaya nga lang pag kasama ang whole family. Granted the pricing was a bit steep, that's to be expected with any Max's restaurant. On the other hand, I could have saved more with their value meal packages, but I prefer to dine ala Filipino style, salu salo. Specially with my kids.

When I was done, the waiter was even kind enough to offer to light my cigarette.

The only downside to our experience was I couldn't eat the bones. You know, in other Max's restaurants - the chickens are so crispy you could literally eat the chicken's bones. I didn't bother this time.
