Max's brings premium cream dory to classic Filipino fish dishes
HOMEGROWN fast casual dining chain Max's Restaurant is giving all-time Filipino fish favorites fine dining treatment by introducing the succulent cream dory fish on its menu this summer.
Meaty but light, firm but tender, the cream dory has long been popular for fine dining because of its excellent cooking qualities. It has luscious, white, sweet and finely textured flesh that can be baked, grilled and barbecued, fried, and steamed.
"These excellent food qualities make cream dory a favorite in fine dining. By including cream dory on our menu this summer, we are uplifting the total Filipino dining experience which is what we are known for, - says Max's spokesperson.
Max's is introducing the cream dory in dishes that are big favorites in most Filipino families: Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet, Steamed Fish Fillet in Light Soy and Fish Fillet in Black Bean Sauce.
The Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet is Max's version of an all time Pinoy favorite. Max's uses bite-sized cream dory that are breaded and deep fried until golden, and generously splashed with a sweet and sour sauce, gently simmered with pineapple tidbits and red and green peppers and carrots.
Fish Fillet in Black Bean Sauce uses lightly breaded cream dory fillets gently sauteed with fermented soy beans and special spices, julienned ginger and red and green bell peppers.
Steamed Fish Fillet in Light Soy is Max's take on the steamed fish that is a staple in Filipino restaurants. In this dish, Max's marinates cream dory fillets in soy sauce. The cream dory is splashed with sesame oil and steamed over high heat. It is then served with spring onion confetti.
"Through these new product offerings, we hope to delight our fish-loving customers with dishes that are familiar to the Filipino palate and yet, pleasantly different because of the addition of the premium cream dory in these classic fish preparations. We believe that the new cream dory dishes perfectly complement Max's existing food offerings, including Max's chicken line which remains to be a classic Filipino favorite. We intend to give our customers a wide variety of options from our present menu and be assured of food quality, a Max's tradition for more than 60 years - says Max's spokesperson.
The Max's cream dory gastronomic fare serves two to three, perfect for barkadas and families out for a filling and tasty fish meal.
