Chicken-to-the-Max's

Max's Fried Chicken went all out: in it's most recent promo offer, diners had to pay Php165.00 and they could eat chicken to their hearts' content (and until they've had their stomachs' fills) from 6pm to 10pm. 


On the last Friday of the promo (July 16th), Donald, Lea, Jhoanne, Crystal, and I went to Max's in Pansol, Calamba to check it out. The restaurant was so full! There were so many customers that we had to wait for seats and then wait for our chicken. 



With so many chicken calls all around, the servers couldn't help but be wiped out by the time we started dinner. 


The gap in between chickens was quite long that it was challenging for Donald to eat all the chicken he planned to eat.

The evening crowd, mainly yuppie groups and families, was quite rowdy. The sosyal atmosphere that I've always known in Max's was not there that night. It all depends on the crowd... and on the servers (who performed a well-received dance routine).


I loved the way the fried chicken was cooked that night: not too dry and not soggy. However, I'm not sure I'd go for another eat-all-the-chicken-that-you-can spin. After eating two chicken quarters (both fried), I started to feel uneasy, and I attribute that to all the cooking oil I ingested. It kept me awake all night.

Little did I know that the next two days would involve quite a number of chicken meals.
