Max’s Fried Chicken: Family Half + Spring Whole
from Max’s Restaurant
-BGC, Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines-
Max’s eponymous fried chicken comes in three sizes: spring (small), regular (medium), family (large).
I got the large and the small to see if the sizes had any difference in texture or flavor. The smaller one, which I would’ve thought to be more tender and tasty, ended up a bit overcooked – I’m wondering if it was cooked for the same amount of time as the large size – and thus dry and bland.
On the bright side, the chicken was much better than I’d remembered from my first and only prior experience with this chain (see most recently 5.235 Fried Chicken). In fact, the delicate deep-fry reminds me of old-school Korean tongdak (see 6.041 The Original Storm).
