Getting to taste Max’s Calderetang Bulalo was definitely one for the books– a lavish fusion of two of your favorite Filipino dishes in one, made with a rich tomato-based beef shank stew with boiled vegetables and topped with melted cheese and sautéed peppers.

Looking for something with a little more sizzle? We were also able to devour the Sizzling Bulalo from Max’s with its tender beef shank lathered in rich and savory gravy, and sprinkled with crispy fried garlic. Starting at P549, these new dishes are available for dine-in, take-out, and delivery.

Puto bumbong is definitely my favorite since it reminds me of Simbang Gabi mornings with my mom, and the Puto Bumbong Cheesecake from Max’s Corner Bakery definitely take me back to that memory.

This cheesecake is a special take on the classic Simbang Gabi kakanin made with glutinous rice flour with ube flavor, smooth and silky cheesecake, and topped with ube crumbs, coconut, and muscovado sugar.

Also, coming back to town for the holidays is the Bibingka Cheesecake, made with soft and fluffy vanilla chiffon, smooth and silky cheesecake, and topped with salted egg slices. These Pinoy Holiday Cheesecakes are available for dine-in, take-out, and delivery starting at P289.
