Filipinos generally love to dine out whether be it with family, friends, classmates or co-workers. I myself love eating out in restaurants and cafés with my barkada. However, one problem I usually encounter is not having enough food for everyone in the group. To address this and make eating out more fun, Max's Restaurant created their latest group meal offering, 4Sharing Meal.
Max's Restaurant has been one of the most favorite homegrown dining spots of almost every Pinoy. And since we, Filipinos are known to treat every meal like a happy bonding session, Max's brings us a sumptuous group meal for everyone to enjoy.
Since April 15, 2012, Max's Restaurant has already been offering the 4Sharing Meal which gives diners a sumptuous spread of their most delectable and sought-after dishes. For only P799, every group of four can enjoy one whole regular sarap-to-the-bones Fried Chicken, a bowl of piping hot Sinigang (with a choice of Sinigang na Baboy, Sinigang na Hipon, Sinigang na Tiyan ng Bangus or Sinigang na Ulo at Tiyan ng Salmon), four servings of plain rice, and four glasses of iced tea.
To make the 4Sharing campaign even more fun and exciting, Max's Restaurant will be raffling off 4 iPhone 4S every week for a period of 8 weeks! To join, simply avail of the 4Sharing Meal valid for dine-in, take-out and delivery. Keep the official receipt and log on to Max's 4Sharing Page where you have to fill up a customer identification and an online raffle entry form.
Last Thursday, I was fortunate enough to be invited to Max's 4Sharing Meals Media Launch held at the first ever branch of this famous homegrown restaurant. Unlike the usual branches of Max's though, the Scout Tuazon restaurant in Quezon City had 2 buildings and an inviting al fresco dining area.
Together with other bloggers and media personnel, I got to sample a preview of the delectably filling and budget friendly 4Sharing Meal starting with the golden brown and perfectly-fried chicken that made Max's an institution. We also had a bowl of Sinigang na Hipon, along with plain rice and iced tea.
Max's 4Sharing Meal is definitely one very satisfying spread. But for people like me who can't miss a meal starter, then there's no harm in ordering a serving of Lumpiang Shanghai (P142.80) which comes with atchara and a sweet and sour sauce. For a sweet ending, you can never go wrong with a refreshing cup of Buko Pandan (P48.30).
Max's Restaurant has been one of my go-to dining spots for a quick meal, not until my family and I had a very disappointing experience with the Chicken All-You-Can promo at the branch near us. Ever since that incident, we already became very wary of eating at Max's, even in other branches. But with a good experience at the Media Launch, a new group meal, and a family of four, I guess it wouldn't hurt to visit Max's Restaurant yet again. I have high hopes that this time, Max's will deliver not only good Filipino food, but also a dining experience worth remembering for the good reason.
