Boodle Fight @ Little Manila Restaurant
Boodle fight is a Philippine military tradition that you should try with your family and friends. The mechanics are simple – hot and fresh food is placed in a long table on top of banana leaves and your mission is to try to eat as much of it as you can using only your bare hands. Once the table is set, all you need to do is wash your hands, stand on side of the table and when the signal to start eating is given, everyone begins to battle it out.
It perfectly combines two things that Filipinos love: talking and eating. So it is not a surprise that it has seeped into Filipino gatherings and celebrations. Boodle Fight is also a perfect way to introduce foreigners to the Filipino culture because it will show them our sense of community and we also make them feel and observe it.
It's a fun and exciting dining experience as compared to eating casually in a fancy restaurant. It increases one's appetite the moment you see the spread on the table. Boodle fight is also a good time to bond with family or friends and enrich the value of sharing. In today's digital age, smartphones and tablets are often used in the dinner table. In the fight for food, with your hands smothered with oil and grease, you won't be able to use any of your gadgets. So it will be an opportunity to really start a conversation with one another.
So, I guess that's it. I hope you try boodle fight, be it at the comforts of your home or in the convenience of a restaurant.
