Max's Restaurant: "Sarap to the Bones" Treat!

Yesterday, Max's Restaurant unveiled their secret recipe. But hey, I am not talking about the secret recipe of their sarap to the bones chicken in here, instead something surprising for the mother who will always have a specially huge place in our heart. The woman we dearly trust no matter how our life has been going. Yes they have an unbeatable promo just in time for the upcoming Mother's Day celebration.

On every table was this small note asking one of the most not-so-easy questions regarding our mom. Hmmmm...I think I would consume more than a piece of bond paper, back-to-back just to answer this one-liner question. It was never too easy. Everything should be coming from the heart and I cannot just easily put it into words. Pretty tough question Max's that you really challenged me. By the way, nice move coming from a very well-established  family restaurant.

It was Mrs. Lyn Ching-Pascual, a mother to two kids who serves as `a host that morning.  With her wit, experience and glamour she is but a fitting example in terms of motherhood. The launching of the newest promo of Max's Restaurant was held at the number one branch, meaning pioneer branch of the fast-casual dining restaurant since 1945 found at Scout Tuason, Quezon City. One of the best ways to start my day right was attending this event. At least I am being reminded how important mothers are in our society. 

Max's Restaurant is currently  in tie-up with Body Shop. Sweet! For a minimum food purchase of P1,300 single receipt customer gets a FREE 60ml THE BODY SHOP SHOWER GEL.  It is soap free, lather rich and fruit infused gel. It's truly the perfect gift to pamper all Moms out there.
This is such a luscious treat! Don't you think?

Max's Assistant Marketing Manager for Dine In and Take Out Ms. Cathy Perez-See and Max' s Assistant Marketing Manager for Regional and Franchise Ms. Jessa Bien. Present as well is Ms. Rolyn Tumbaga, Corporate Sales and Business Development Manager for Body Shop.

Posted at the far end f the room are the pictures of our mom who tenderly cares for us. Three lucky bloggers were acknowledged for giving the best answer to the question Max's had provided. Gift Certificates were at stake. Congrats to all of them. A delicious treat for their family come Mother's Day plus, never to forget the Body Shop Shower Gel. Seems like moms out there need more belly satisfying and pampering too! It is their day so we should be making them genuinely happy!

 Blogger friends enjoying Max's luscious treat. Thank you 'The House that Chicken Built'. We really had a great filling lunch.

 Me and Ness holding each a long-stemmed rose to be given to our mothers when we got home. Lovely!

What was out for grabs were of course Max's line of scrumptious Filipino dishes. No matter how many times I've tasted these all, I guess I will never get tired of smelling and tasting the very same recipes and dishes over and over again. It is very reflective of our tradition, Very Filipino! Very satisfying. 

 Deep-fried Boneless Bangus

 Kare-Kare (my favorite..will always be my fave!)

 Always on their toes. Their staffs are friendly and courteous. 
How did he manage to balance such a huge tray with so many Max's Fried Chicken on it. 
As always I am again bothered with their uniforms. Fashionable. Fit for the restaurant's theme. But did you guys know who is the designer of those clothes that their managers are wearing down to the restaurant's servers? It was no other than an internationally acclaimed designer Mr. Rajo Laurel.

By the way, Pork Liempo and Sinigang na Hipon were served to the media men and bloggers alike. I cannot place it how come I have no photos of the two. Maybe I am just overwhelmed with the restaurant's generous serving that moment.  ^_^

Sweet ending!

I have been to this branch several times already. Attended various celebrations from debut party, christening celebration, wedding celebration etc of our relatives, friends and family friends. That is why these last three photos above will always remind me how frequent I am at this branch. The small pond with so many healthy  and of different sizes fishes, the function rooms, the tranquil facade and even the Max's mascot statue. A perfect venue for whatever celebration you have in mind. So see you again Max's! 'Til your next event. 

Treat your Mom this Mother's Day! Check out Max's Restaurant's current promo here.

Note: Everybody was given a box of cupcakes, Max's gift certificates and a Body Shop sample item.
