Two is Better than One: Max's Kabisera

With the local food scene getting crazier and crazier each day with the number of new brands and concepts opening in every corner, there are still classics that I go back to with Max's as one of my go to restaurants when it comes to Tofu Sisig, Pancit Canton and of course, fried chicken. And when it merged with my other favorite Filipino restaurant Kabisera, it felt like it was an early Christmas gift. 

Hello, Max's Kabisera.
Max's Kabisera came from the idea of merging two of Max's Group brands under one store to offer the best of both concepts resulting in a wide array of familiar dishes yet in a redefined dining experience and setting. 
Its posh look sure sets it apart from the usual Max's but at the same time became more bright and even more appealing compared to the old Kabisera with its minor touch ups. 
We feasted on some of the two brands' bestsellers namely Max's Fried Chicken, Adobo Ribs, Kare-KareLumpiang Sariwa, Pancit Canton, Crispy Pata, Salmon Kinilaw, and Sinigang na Bangus Belly.
It was my first time to try Adobo Ribs and it was really good. I love how rich and flavorful this dish was in every bite. The lovely blend of soy sauce, vinegar and pepper with the succulent ribs would win anyone's taste buds. I prefer to eat this with rice though given its strong flavor.
Kare-Kare was great too. The thick peanut sauce with ox tail, tripe and veggies would make an excellent addition to any meal. Don't forget the shrimp paste!

I was surprised that the bangus belly in sinigang is now lightly battered and fried. It didn't really change the taste of the dish but it did add a bit of texture.
Pancit Canton, as always, is a nice dish to have with the classic fried chicken. But this version we got was topped with seafood making it even more delicious!
And speaking of fried chicken, the famous Max's fried chicken is now available in High Street! This is probably the only chicken I prefer with banana ketchup! I just found the piece I got a bit dry. 
Crispy Pata will definitely make any meal extra special. But be prepared to fight for its crispy skin. 
But if you prefer something light, Salmon Kinilaw is the perfect choice. Its tangy taste as starter as it will surely whet your appetite. 
And for merienda, nothing beats Lumpiang Sariwa. 
Or perhaps have yours to go. Pick your favorites from Max's Corner Bakery. 

I can't wait to go back for more!
P.S. They also offer our favorite street food!

Max's by Kabisera is located at B3, Bonifacio High Street, 7th Avenue, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
