One of those is "The House that Fried Chicken Built," or more popularly known as Max's Restaurant, which celebrated its 5th year in the Middle East last September. Since it first opened in Karama back in 2011, it has expanded and opened three more branches in the UAE: Al Ghurair Centre, Dragon Mart 2, and Sharjah City Centre...allowing more and more Pinoys (and other nationalities too!) to satisfy their hunger and cravings with their delectable menu items.
Now I love seafood. And as a Pinay in a foreign country with countless restaurants offering an unending variety of cuisines, at the end of a tiring day, I would still prefer to sink my teeth in familiar comfort food from my homeland. So when we received an invitation from Max's through Tito Art Los Baños to have a Pinoy Bloggers night at their Al Ghurair branch and try their seafood specials, naturally I was all for it.
That night, we were served a feast of delicious, mouth-watering dishes, freshly prepared by Henry Suarez, Jr., their Executive Chef. But because I'm not that good with words, and since a picture speaks a thousand words, I'll let these shots do the talking so you can see what and how much we enjoyed ☺.
Here's what we had from the sea:

|Sugpo (Tiger Prawns)|
|Pusit (Grilled Squid)|
|Max's Fried Chicken|
|The perfect sweet ending to a scrumptious meal!|
