Max’s Restaurant | Karama

Beef Sisig

No argue, Filipinos love their fried chicken crispy and tangy! I get cravings for it once and awhile and whenever I do I’ll just have to walk 5 minutes to Max’s Restaurant!

Last weekend we had our dinner at Max’s Restaurant in Bur Dubai. It is close to our favourite breakfast nook, Taste Kitchen! The place was buzzing!

Max’s Restaurant is one of the oldest multinational chain in the Philippines.

First to arrive were our two drinks, Pineapple juice and Melon shake – both are refreshing. Shortly afterwards, our Fresh Lumpia arrived. This was beautiful with a very unique twist of peanut sauce. The lumpia were cool however it worked very well with the flavours. Our main course is followed.

The Crabmeat rice had a lovely eggy taste with lots of fresh crab in the middle. The Fish dish is called Pinaputok na Tiyan ng Bangus, it arrived wrapped in a banana leaf. The fish taste very fresh and came with a lovely traditional soy sauce dip. This was our healthy choice!

The Fried Chicken platter was well-presented with a wide range of food including, rice, noodles and caramel bar.   This plate alone is enough to fill someone. I can’t forget the wonderful crispy friend chicken skin.

And finally the star of the show, the Sizzling Beef Sisig. Of course normally as Filipinos are used pork in our sisig and it feels like a sacrifice when we have to choose chicken or beef. However, this sisig was as good as any pork equivalent. Beautiful tangy beef mixed with a creamy egg made for a lovely dish that I have been craving for ever since.

After our meal we have a  lovely chat with Ms. Cynthia who turns out to be also a foodie with a great knowledge of local eating haunts. So Ms Cynthia if you are reading this Hello and hopefully we can go on an adventure soon.

Overall we have a lovely trip to Max’s restaurant and I really do feel that the restaurant carries a little bit of Philippines with it.
I would recommend it for any homesick Filipinos who craves for a taste back home.

With Jollibee soon to open it’s a good time to be a Filipino foodie in Dubai.
