A military eating tradition by the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) cadets became one of Philippine’s unique eating adventure called Boodle Fight. A jargon for “eating combat” or “attack the food” where food is shared among the members and serve on top of the banana leaves or newspaper and eaten with bare hands while standing to symbolized fraternity and equality.
The boodle fight is usually prepared in celebrating a successful event or a special occasion.
Capturing and infusing the concept of Boodle Fight, Captain A ‘s would like to share this tradition to casual dining with nonmilitary group and share camaraderie among your friends, family, barkadas and colleagues in style.
