A TOFU Decision!5:52 PM
But after that day of realizations on food and class, the food just didn't stop with Cinnamon rolls and Brownies galore. I never thought I would set foot again on Max's.
So Kevyn, Jedy and I went to Max's Restaurant (Abreeza) that same afternoon to try out Max's sizzling Tofu (which Jedy had been craving for). I was doubtful at first because I never really liked the taste of beancurd. Tofu?? What?? Ewww.
But she insisted. Kevyn and I just agreed for we can't do anything about it. I mean, we're with a vegetarian, we're quite on a tight budget and I'm on a strict diet - with those and a couple of excuses we can't order more!
So we called a waitress. She smiled and greeted us and then. .
Waitress: Sir, Mam ano po order natin?
Me: One order of Sizzling Tofu please and garlic rice for each of us.
Waitress: Hmm..How about our Chicken sir?
Me: Tofu please!
Waitress: Masarap po ang Chicken namin dito Sir!
Me: -_- Sizzling Tofu and garlic rice lang po.
Waitress: Eh, chicken po?
Me: (in my mind: Namimilit?2x )
Hehe. Yun lang, vegetarian kasama namin eh.
Waitress: Kayo pala sir?
Me: Diet kami!!
Waitress: Drinks sir?
Me: Water lang please!! :-D
Waitress nga sya! Wait, nakaka-STRESS!!

A few minutes later our order was served. .
|Ohhh...ano ka?? *drools*|
Presented in a wooden plate and somehow reminded me of Sisig, Max's sizzling Tofu looked and smelled so delicious I hurriedly picked up the fork to try it.
Max's Sizzling Tofu tasted excellent. Its creamy sauce neutralized the hotness of the sliced green and red chili peppers while its ambrosial smell enticed us more to eat up to the last piece.
It was so good that I actually had a couple of flashbacks (the Tagaytay experience included) running up inside my head. The food we ordered was good, and so was the service and Sizzling Tofu only costs P160 (good for 2-3 persons). :-)
In the end, Kevyn and I was pleased by Jedy's decision. Kevyn even told Jedy "Jedy, for once you did something right!" and she most certainly did!! Admittedly, for a vegetarian, (Jedy) seems to know more about food.
From the way it looks, Max's Sizzling Tofu is a rare find. Like who would have thought you can eat a great Tofu dish in a CHICKEN Restaurant? At a reasonable price. ;-D
