Filipino Boodle Fight

A boodle fight is a meal that dispenses with cutlery and dishes. Diners instead practice kamayan, Filipino for "eating with the hands". The food is placed on top of a long banana leaf-lined trestle table.

What is Boodle Fight dining?

Boodle Fight dining is also known as “kamayan” style dining, named after the Filipino army style of eating. Kamay is the Tagalong word for hand. After a long day of marching, soldiers would eat off banana leaves in the native tradition since they couldn’t easily carry plates and utensils with them. The cooks then piled the rationed rice and meat onto the banana leaves, and the “fight” commenced when the soldiers hurried to grab and eat as much food for themselves as possible Before it was gone. 

Filipinos demonstrate their love by offering food to one another. Kamayan is Lola‘s way of sharing an amazing experience by celebrating the love of good food and good times. You’re sharing a table of with amazing food with one another. Eating with ones hands provides the physical connection to the food and allows your senses to take over a way rarely allowed in modern dining.
