One of the highlights of our family’s 6-day Alberta Trip was our visit to Edmonton. Aside from having the chance to visit the largest shopping mall in North America (Edmonton Mall), my husband’s cousin who lives in Edmonton brought us to Max’s Restaurant. Max’s is the Filipino’s favorite fried chicken restaurant. And after 5 long years of living in Canada, once again, we experienced the taste of our favorite Filipino dishes. We had crispy pata, kare-kare, and pancit and of course we wouldn’t miss the chance to taste their specialty – their famous fried chicken. And that sumptuous meal was completed by our buko pandan dessert and caramel bar. Hmmm, I can still recall how even for that moment, we felt like we’re in the Philippines. We left Edmonton hoping that one day Max’s would open up a restaurant in Winnipeg or even somewhere close to Winnipeg (Brandon, maybe?)
Today, while I was browsing about the latest news in the Philippines (yes, even if I said before that I will stop reading news from home, I still can’t help it), I came across the news published by inquirer.net confirming that Max’s is coming to Winnipeg! I actually heard the news about it in the past months, but what is exciting about this latest news update is that they confirmed that it’s happening in 2018! It is happening soon.
According to the news, Max’s Group Incorporated (MGI), the company that operates Max’s Restaurants and other brands such as Pancake House, Yellow Cab and Sizzlin’ Steak announced that it recently partnered with Alibin Group Incorporated to establish the first Max’s Restaurant in Winnipeg, Canada by 2018. Alibin Group is a privately held Canadian company based in Winnipeg comprised of family shareholders and operators which is into the retailing business, food services, accounting, finance and private capital market, architectural and information technology.
Winnipeg will be the sixth city in Canada where Max’s Restaurant put up a branch. Max’s Restaurant currently operates in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto and Scarborough with the help of MGI’s other partners in the following locations:
EDMONTON: 11650-142 St NW, Edmonton AB T5M 1V4
CALGARY: 3575 20 Ave NE, Calgary, AB T1Y 6R3

I am so excited to taste Max’s all-time favorite Filipino dishes in Winnipeg!
