max's restaurant

Over the weekend, me and the fam trekked out to Vaughan for some Filipino food at Max's Restaurant. Max's is a chain in the Philippines and is known for it's fried chicken. At 8 p.m. on a Saturday night, we had to wait about an hour to get a table. Service was quite slow, but the food was classic Filipino deliciousness.
Max's teasers appetizer plate (Lumpiang Shanghai/Filipino springrolls, crispy calamari)
Our table
Whole Max's chicken
Garlic rice (fried rice with A LOT of garlic)
Lechon kawali (crispy deep-fried pork belly)
Pancit canton (stir fried egg noodles, vegetables, pork, chicken, shrimp)

Then onto dessert! We went for the Halo Halo, shaved ice topped with sweet beans, ube (yam) ice cream, jackfruit, coconut jelly, palm nuts, leche flan (caramel custard), evaporated milk and crunchy rice flakes.
And Buko Pandan, young coconut mixed with Pandan gelatin, condensed milk and Macapuno (a type of coconut) ice cream, topped with crunchy rice flakes.
