I am sure some of you have a heard the term Boodle Fight. Boodle Fight is an arrangement dinner eat using your fingers. This type of meal has it’s roots in the Philippine military’s style of eating in which soldiers, regardless what rank you are in or what position you are, they all dine in together on the food that is spread out on the top of the banana leave. It’s strikingly hands only, no forks or spoon at all not even knives.
A friend of mine invited us to her house Saturday night not knowing really what she was cooking or preparing. When we arrived at her house we saw all the delicious food on the top of the banana leaves. She was telling me that we are doing Boodle Fight. Everything she prepare was very delicious, we had some left overs and of course she let us carry it with us. She made rice noodles, grilled some pork chop, rice of course, shrimps, and dried fish.
A great way to spend with friends is having a boodle fight. It’s fun eating with just your hand, I know some of you may thinks it’s gross but remember before joining on the boodle fight you can wash hand. On the military sometimes they don’t even wash their hand because they are in the rush of eating. You learn how to leave like an army, you won’t have a hard time fitting in to this kind of fun. You can do Boodle Fight with pretty much anything. You can do tacos, any food that you want to eat really, just remember no cheating. No fork – spoon – knives must allowed.
And as you can see we pretty much eat most of it, with a little bit of left over. It was a great time, even my daughter enjoyed it. Let me know if you tried this one and tell me what you think about it. Have you done boodle fight before? Did you like it?
