The Yakima Valley is home to a considerable Filipino population, and some of the best local Filipino food you will find is at the annual Barrio Fiesta at Filipino Hall in Wapato.

It would be "delish" if we could get one of these Filipino fast food chains here in the Valley, Max's Restaurant. They've just opened up Washington state's first-ever location over on the West side of the state. I, for one, am envious about it!

Max's Restaurant serves up casual dining including fried chicken, egg rolls (lumpiang Shanghai), rice and noodles, soups and "Sizzling Specials" like pork or chicken sisig dishes.

I am salivating just looking at the menu. Can we please get one of these in the Yakima Valley pronto?
