Max's is a chain. Try to find an independent if you can.

What Happens If You Love Pasta But Can't Eat Carbs?

SHIRATAKI noodles made from yams = 0 calories
As we all know, pasta and noodles are made of starch, so they have calories. But there is an exception - NoOodle is made from high-fiber yam flour and water. As you are most probably aware, soluble fiber and water have no calories, thus NoOodle is entirely devoid of calories. NoOodle is the healthy alternative.

Sisig (Filipino Sizzling Pork)

My four stars are more due to tweaking that I need to do I'm sure.

I LOVE the Hapa SF sisig and was thrilled to find this recipe from William. I was unable to get an ear, so the butcher gave me skin instead, which I treated the same. My only comments would be, 1) I wish it made more! and 2) I will definitely either use a low sodium or less soy sauce next time as it was on they salty side. I think I might add more chilis next time too since I like heat.
