Get the family together at home and enjoy an ice-cold Coca-Cola with this hearty and filling Pinoy Boodle.
Boodle fight is a popular Filipino way of eating food on a banana leaf using your hands. It was traditionally the military’s way of eating, but it has become popular during family gatherings and out-of-town trips.
A typical Pinoy Boodle has grilled seafood, pork or chicken and fried dishes that you can pair with vegetables and other side dishes.

You can’t do a boodle fight without a huge bowl of rice. Opt for plain or java rice if you’re having mostly grilled dishes. You can use aligue rice if you are having a seafood-themed boodle fight. Check out other rice options here!
