We Filipinos are known to have that passion when it comes to Food. Our love for yummy food even extends to having an early merienda before and after lunch.
In Argentina it is called tea time,in the North American countries- "Second Breakfast", In Catalonia, the Valencian Community and the Balearic Islands, it is known as berenar o 'bereneta' in Catalan,'Bereneta' is mainly used in Menorca, Croatia it is called marenda, a meal eaten between breakfast and lunch, sually it is a light snack, like sandwiches or toast, eaten during work break and here in our very own country; we Filipinos call it Merienda (refers to light meals or brunch).
Merienda has been in our history since way back when the Spaniards conquered our country. So it'll be a big question if we don't indulge in a merienda in a day.
Who likes Max's Corner Bakery and Max's Merienda favorites? I can literally see all of you raising your hands up. Of course who wouldn't ?
Max’s Corner Bakery boasts of a rich and colorful history that dates back to the 1960’s when its founder Ruby Trota baked the first batch of soft bread rolls using wood-fired oven. It instantly captured the hearts of Filipino customers dining at Max’s, a flourishing restaurant at that time. Eventually, Max’s Corner Bakery diversified to other delectable baked goodies that became customer favorites - from breads, to pastries and cakes, to the Filipino’s favorite Caramel Bar, soft, chewy and irresistibly sweet.
