Max’s Filipino restaurant has added three delicious spicy dishes to its popular menu. The beef caldereta (Dhs38), sizzling sweet and spicy chicken (Dhs26) and gambas con aligue (Dhs32) are sure to get your tastebuds tingling.

Beef Caldereta is a tasty dish of beef cooked in garlic, onions, tomato, peppers, chicken liver, bay leaf, tomato sauce, celery, potatoes and Max’s secret ingredient for the extra zing.
