Max's Express: New Express Food Service For Thomasians
Max’s Express is a new place to dine in offered for Thomasians, it is located in the new Quadricentennial Pavilion just right in front of the Engineering building.
I asked the manager why “Express”? And how does it differ from the usual Max’s Restaurant. Obviously, “Express” means “Instant” or “Fast”. They come up with a new genre of Max’s from “Resto” to “Fast-food”, through this, they are able to compete with other fast-food chains by offering a classic dine-in with a twist.
The menu of MAX’S EXPRESS and MAX’S RESTAURANT varies in some ways. If you are a MAX’S avid fan, their Restaurant offers Filipino food (with sauces and veggies), chicken, desserts and the like. In Max’s Express, Chicken is still offered because it is their specialty, but Filipino foods that needs a while to cook like (Sinigang, Kare-kare, etc.) is not offered in their Express. In addition, they offer pastries and bread which can be eaten if you are ON-THE-GO.
Their “Express” fits the lifestyle of Thomasian students who needs fast, delicious, and quality served food.
If you want a different kind of dining and not like the usual fast-food chains around the campus, visit Max’s Express. Their grand opening will be on June 4, 2013; just in time for UST’s opening of classes.
So here I am again, as an architecture student my “curiosity” about architecture and interior bothers me; we are always keen observers of details.
Their facade is slightly hidden from people who passes by, I think it would be great if they have a huge sign outside just like this big yellow ball boulder outside the Quadricentennial Pavilion.
Here’s how we get here:
After the enrollment, we were approached by Max’s crew, they gave us a coupon which we needed in exchange of P150.00 play moneys to buy our food. We are entitled to purchase anything with this amount (they’re all free).
The whole Max’s Express family (I just want to call them “family” haha) welcomes us warmly and gladly, with bright wide smiles. :)
With regards to food and menu, they have a lot to offer, and I’m glad they have a lot of desserts to choose from. OMNOMNOM!
INTERIOR AND ARCHITECTURE:
I love their country look interior, it is cozy and homy.
There are variations with wall decals, furniture and finishes, which make it looks like a good “tambayan” for Thomasians. Their tile details are cute and graphic designed walls are eye-catching. The combination of wood, plastic, metal, fiberglass, glass and paints are good. Lights are kinda dimmed for some reasons, but as a whole… it ROCKS!
OMNOMNOM! THE FOOD!!! Everything’s good.
3 Things about the food:
2.) Worth It
3.) Fits Everybody’s Taste
As a whole, the Max’s Express experience is savorily good! =)
Yehey to my friend “Emy” who celebrated her 19th here.
We celebrated the birthday of my father at Max’s Restaurant in SM Pampanga last December 27. The resto was not that crowded since it was an hour early before lunch time but when we were eating, the people started coming in.
We ordered the following:
- Descriptions of the dishes came from Max’s menu
Kare-kare - Classic Pinoy favorite done the Max’s way - rich beef and vegetable dish of oxtail, ox tripe and beef chuck simmered in thick peanut sauce and served with Max’s bagoong alamang
Max’s Fried Chicken (Half) - 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!
Pork Binagoongan - Pork cubes sauteed in a rich, mildly sweet and salty shrimp paste sauce placed on a bed of fried eggplant. Garnished with tomato wedges, fine julienned green mangoes and sprinkled with chopped spring onion.
Sizzling Tofu - Tofu cubes with chopped onions, red and green bell peppers glazed with a special sauce topped with chilis.
