Max’s Restaurant: Celebrate Love, Share Kindness

For the month of February, The Salvation Army in Winnipeg has teamed up with Max’s Restaurant on a sweetheart of a deal for a full family meal.

The meal, available for dine-in or take out, includes one whole fried chicken, Pocherong Baka, Pancit (Canton, Bihon or Miki Bihon), steamed rice and caramel bar ice cream for $55. From every meal sold, $2 will go towards local Salvation Army programs and services.

For those not familiar with Filipino cuisine Pocherong Baka is a stew of beef simmered until tender in beef stock with honey sweet baked beans, tomato sauce, fresh potatoes, saba banana, corn and green vegetables. Pancit is a stir-fried noodle dish sauteed with vegetables, pork, chicken and shrimp: Canton uses egg noodles, Bihon uses rice sticks and Miki Bihon combines rice sticks and egg noodles. Pancit is often served during birthdays and special occasions to symbolize long life.

“The Salvation Army is a reputable organization heavily involved in helping the community. Max’s restaurant has always been moved by these types of initiatives and we are committed to helping other people in our community, to give hope and encourage others especially during these trying times” says Arnel Alibin Co-Owner and General Manager of Max’s Winnipeg.

The Filipino restaurant, known as “The House That Fried Chicken Built” has been a staple in the Philippines since 1945. There are over 200 locations in the Philippines, eight in the middle east and 17 in North America. The Winnipeg location opened in 2019.
