A fusion between Dencio’s and Max’s Restaurant, Max’s Kabisera boasts a one of kind look and vibe among its neighboring establishments along BGC.
Highlighting delicious Filipino food and the famous Filipino hospitality, Max’s Kabisera aims to cater more to the lifestyle and taste of people in their location as they combine it with elements of Kabisera’s elevated and well-thought aesthetic and a menu that is an adaptation of traditional and long-time Pinoy faves like the Max’s Fried Chicken, Kare-Kare, and Crispy Pata, reinvented with additional food selection such as Sizzling Bulalo Steak, Pugon Lechon Belly, and Adobo Ribs.
Plus, as this place is an upscale of Dencio’s as well, it is no surprise Kabisera houses a bar with a remarkable selection of beers and wine, both local and international, and a delightful list of bar chows that would surely attract chill hangout sessions over casual chit-chats.
Starting my dinner with their famed Adobo Back Ribs (php 599) which is a Kabisera Special, this dish is a twist on the classic taste of traditional Adobo – tangy and savory flavor. This 3-hour oven-baked half slab baby back ribs is moist, fork tender, and caramelized, and topped with onion leeks and baked garlic bulb on the side.
This next dish is one of Nanay Ruby’s Special – the Kare-Kare (Php 499). Nanay Ruby is one of the brains behind their menu. With that, this one is a classic Filipino stew with thick peanut sauce made with oxtail, tripe, skin, and beef chuck, plus a variety of mixed vegetables, and of course, served with max’s tasty bagoong.
Another Nanay Ruby’s Special is Max’s Kabisera’s Crispy Pata (Php 799) because a celebration is not complete without this trademark Max’s dish. This is a delightful order of premium pork knuckle cooked the same way as Max’s Sarap-to-the-Bones fried chicken, and served with atchara and special pata dipping sauce.
From their Lighter Fare selection, Max’s Kabisera has Seafood Pancit Canton (Solo Php 239 | To Share Php 449) which is one of their bestsellers. It’s a special noodle dish made with canton egg noodles, sauteed with mussels, shrimps, and squid.
Of course, you would probably be in doubt if I don’t actually try out Max’s House Special, their Best fried Chicken which I got in Regular Chicken (Half Php 216 | Whole Php 424). This is the original and classic fried chicken that made Max’s a Filipino institution. Golden fried to perfection, with a unique blend of secret spices, talagang Sarap-to-the-Bones! You can also get this one in Spring Chicken.
Meanwhile, if you want something hot in a bowl, then good thing Max’s Kabisera has Molo Soup (Solo Php 100 | To Share Php 199) for you! This one is an Ilonggo dish perfect for a filling merienda – ground chicken with shrimp, wrapped in molo wrapper simmered in chicken soup stock.
Lastly, when you feel like having some sweet in you, then go look at Kabisera’s Desserts: Panghimagas selection wherein you can choose something that you think would satisfy your sweet tooth. For me, I got the Kabisera Buko Pandan (Php 90). It was certainly a delectable dessert that was all milky and creamy, and I loved every spoonful I had.
As Max’s Kabisera presents itself as a dining and social destination for folks in pursuit of good, fun times over hearty, hefty meals, and maybe even a splendid drink or two with some friends and family, diners will absolutely once again appreciate not only Filipino food, but Filipino culture and definitely, Filipino hospitality as well.
