Max's of Manila

If you live or work in town, it's pretty hard to find authentic Filipino cuisine. Sure, there's probably a Golden Coin or a Jollibee nearby, but that's Filipino fast food. If you want to try Filipino homestyle cooking, check out Max's of Manila. Buddy really enjoys Filipino food so on this outing, he did all the ordering and Bumper just ate what was served.  :)

Halo Halo

  1. Good move Bumper to let Buddy order. Looks ono - delicious. Was, huh?
    I think this is near the Costco in town.

    1. Yes, this is next to the Iwilei Costco. Buddy's favorite was the fish and Bumper's was the pork leg. And of course, we enjoyed the halo halo...who can say "no" to dessert? :)

  2. I do agree with all of the ideas you've presented to your post. They're really convincing and can definitely
    work. Still, the posts are too brief for beginners. May you please prolong them a
    bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
