A flavorful blend of Filipino tradition and streetwear glam
Max’s Restaurant, renowned for its “Sarap-to-the-Bones” fried chicken, took center stage at ComplexCon by seamlessly fusing Filipino culinary heritage with streetwear chic. Esteemed streetwear designer Unkie Leroy found inspiration in Max’s, crafting shirts and jackets adorned with vintage postcard imagery, including iconic rooster and hen artworks. The designs, lauded by the discerning Complex community, distinguished themselves among nearly a hundred merchants, with some sizes selling out.
As the sole Filipino restaurant invited to the event, Max’s proudly presented a special menu featuring favorites such as Filipino Fried Chicken and Lechon Sisig with Adobo Fried Rice. Max’s Mango Jelly dessert proved to be a crowd-pleaser, selling out on both days.
This collaboration not only positioned Max’s as a lifestyle trendsetter but also served as a platform to share Filipino culture and cuisine with the world. With roots dating back to 1945, Max’s Restaurant left a flavorful imprint on the hearts and palates of the Complex community at ComplexCon.
