Food Trips | Late Lunch at Max's Pansol (Laguna)

@ Max's Restaurant, Pansol, Calamba, Laguna

Last Tuesday (a holiday), my friend and I decided to go on a road trip to Laguna. We left Quezon City at around 10AM, went straight to Rizal Shrine in Calamba Laguna, our first stop for our Laguna road trip. It was already past 12NN when we finished exploring the place and then we passed by the nearby church to pay respect and offer thanksgiving for a safe trip there (and back home). Afterwards, we also went to Rizal Monument, located across the city hall of Calamba City. In short, we enjoyed our road trip we forgot we had to have lunch...tsk! We had it at around 2:30PM, super late, we were already famished.

Anyway, we were still supposed to look for a local restaurant along the road going to Los BaƱos but my friend had qualms stopping at a restaurant with few (some with no patrons, actually) customers so we ended up having our late lunch at Max's. Our orders? The usual -- half family fried chicken, nilagang baka, tinapa rice and bottomless sago't gulaman. Classic...hehe!

Max's fried chicken, half, family size - 235 PhP
Nilagang Baka - 235 PhP
Tinapa Rice - 155 PhP
Sago't Gulaman (bottomless) - 89 PhP
Anyway, we still enjoyed our late lunch despite not having a try of a local restaurant. Who wouldn't have anyway when you're served of fried chicken with "sarap-to-the-bones" trademark. And the nilagang baka? It's flavorful; the meat is tender, the soup is still steaming when served and we were given calamansi-chili-soy for a dip. With tinapa rice and bottomless sago't gulaman, superb lunch! Afterwards, we're again energized to continue our road trip. And we were given this, too: a complimentary entrance pass for five persons to Makiling Highlands or Monte Vista Hotsprings Resort in Pansol, Calamba, Laguna. I just don't know if we could avail of this. You want?
