Max’s Restaurant, which uses the slogan “The house that fried chicken built”, has brought back the unlimited fried chicken promo for a month. The promo starts on June 10 and will end after a month. This round is a bit pricier than the previous one (from 165 to 199), and will no longer be an all-day event but would be restricted to the 6pm-10pm slot. The package comes with a regular drink that can be converted to bottomless for Php25 more. Rice or roll will cost extra.

Neth and I were in SM Taytay at around 3PM today to do some groceries and ended up waiting for the promot to kick in. The queue outside of the Max restaurant started to form at about 5:45PM so I decided to fall in line. We got seated at around 6:15PM and promptly ordered for to chicken-all-you-can with bottomless Mountain Dew (of course) and 2 rice servings. I ended up with 1.5 servings of rice as Neth graciously gave half of her rice to me. 🙂

The chicken was as good as we expected although the refilling slowed down after the third piece. I guess that was the time when all of the tables in the place were now availing of the promo. All-in-all the slowdown and the checking of the crew asking if we want other stuff made us break the 20-minute barrier[1].

Overall, I had 5 pieces of chicken (roughly 1 whole chicken), 4 glasses of Mountain Dew, and 1.5 servings of rice. Neth had 3 pieces of chicken, 2 glasses of the Dew, and half serving of rice. Our total bill ended up as Php518. Not bad. 🙂

And some optional snapshots:



BURP!
