Boodle Fight Basics

First of all, there are no strict rules in preparing a boodle fight. As long as its festive and has the spirit of sharing a meal and of course, kamayan dapat.  Besides, its a military feast!

Here’s a list to cover the basic elements of the “ideal” boodle fight:

  • Toasted banana leaves to cover the table – toasted to bring out some flavor
  • Seafood – Shrimp, crab, mussels, squid or any fried/steamed or grilled fish
  • Bitesize items (Longganisa, tapa, tocino, Chopped liempo, Lumpiang Shanghai)
  • Veggies / Gulay – Kangkong, okra, etc.
  • Side dishes, mga pampagana – itlog na pula, atsara, cut tomatoes, diced onions, sliced cucumbers, bagoong, etc.
  • Lots of rice – smack in the middle
  • Sawsawan

You need to put an effort to arranging the whole thing equally 🙂
