Recommendation by Lemi
Starting out in 1945 as a cafe for American occupation troops to grab food and drinks, Max’s Restaurant is now a local institution where families gather for different celebrations. Dubbed as “The House that Fried Chicken Built,” it is revered for what many consider the golden standard in local fried chicken: skin that’s crispy even without breading, and meat that’s incredibly tender, juicy and tasty. It’s best partnered with their version of banana ketchup, a purely Filipino creation that sprung from a shortage its tomato counterpart during World War 2.
