Our starving stomachs took up to a Filipino restaurant close to work called Max’s Restaurant. we started by having a samples plate of calamari and pork spring rolls. And for our main meal we shared a traditional Filipino stew called Kare-kare.
Kare-kare is a Phillipine beef stew in peanut sauce with mixed vegetables, oxtail and beef. It is served with shrimp paste called bagoong which you stir in the stew and eat with rice. This was a first time for me at a Filipino restaurant, we wanted to try something new, and I loved it. The beef was tender and flavorful and I couldn’t stop eating.
By the end of it we were stuffed, we really wanted dessert, but couldn’t fit even a single tiny speck of food. I wish we made room for their Halo halo: Filipino sweets, rice crispies and ice cream. Next time for sure!
