VANCOUVER, BC (July 30, 2013) – For a family or a group of friends who are planning a trip to Vancouver in British Columbia, Max’s Restaurant located in the Renfrew Collingwood area is a culinary landmark that serves authentic Filipino cuisine – a delectable menu that features the famous Max’s fried chicken, crispy pata, lumpiang shanghai, pancit canton, halo-halo and many other traditional Filipino dishes. It has become a favorite stop for tourist buses and travelers from neighboring cities.
Their very own mascot Chickie Boy appears on special occasions to greet and entertain their diners and their kids. He is a lovable anthromorphic chick which wears a jumpsuit, hat and constant friendly smile. He even sings the Happy Birthday song during birthday parties.
Established in 1945 in the city of Manila after World War II by Stanford-educated teacher Maximo Gimenez, Max’s Restaurant has expanded with over a hundred branches and franchised locations in the Philippines, including restaurants in Metro Manila, Northern and Southern Luzon and Cebu. In North America, there are ten branches with two in Canada and more coming soon to other cities.
The Max’s Restaurant Vancouver BC branch opened on Kingsway on May 25, 2012 and has quickly established itself as the “go to” restaurant for Filipino celebrities, like Janno Gibbs, Aegis, Jose Mari Chan, Parokya ni Edgar, Mocha Girls, Kris Bernal, Aljur Abrenica and many other artists who are performing at concert venues in this city.
