L.A. Times Daily Dish names Max’s Restaurant as a fave Asian Fried Chicken Joint!
Popularly known as “The House that Fried Chicken Built” in the Philippines, Max’s Restaurant has been recognized in Jonathan Gold’s six(6) favorite Asian Chicken Joints in the Los Angeles area.
His faves also include Indonesian’s Merry’s House of Chicken, Thai’s Night + Market Song, OB Bear Korean Restaurant, Tokyo Fried Chicken, and Dongpo Chinese Restaurant.
Jonathan Gold (born July 28, 1960) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic who currently writes for the Los Angeles Times and has previously written for LA Weekly and Gourmet. He is also a regular on KCRW’s Good Food radio program. Gold covers all types of cuisine but often chooses small, ethnic restaurants for reviews.
“It is such an honor to be named by someone like Mr. Gold. It is probably unbeknownst to him that the success of Max’s Restaurant is deeply rooted from the 70-year-old fried chicken recipe concocted by Nanay Ruby, the niece of restaurant founder, Maximo Gimenez.” says Lana Marcaida.
“With the diverse LA food scene within a vast mosaic of race and culture, it’s so wonderful to be acknowledged and chosen, especially because of Max’s fried chicken, where it all truly began!” concludes Marcaida, Operations Director for North America, Max’s Group, Inc.
