So what is a Boodle Fight? Recently this culinary experience is gaining popularity not just in Philippines but as well as United States like our very own KANTO BOODLE FIGHT here in Corpus Christi Texas .This Filipino tradition of eating originated from the Philippine military where a big pile of food are served in the middle of a really long table in a mess hall where every hungry soldier eats with their hands symbolizing of camaraderie, brotherhood and equality in the military. The “fight” in the name refers to the act of grabbing and eating as much as the soldier can before others grab them or runs out, Usually food are served on top of a table lined with banana leaves, rice is placed in the middle and viands are either served on top or on the sides of the rice. Water jugs are also placed on the side used for washing your hands just before the “fight” happens. No utensils are used when eating and you will use your bear hands to eat so this is definitely not a fine dining experience but trust me it’s way much more exciting to do this rather than those ones that have multiple sets of cutleries and glassware in front of you.

Will you ever try this? What are your thoughts on this Filipino tradition? Just comment below!!!!
