Wanna Budol Fight?

Our Budol Fight spread

So before you say "make love, not war", budol fight may not mean what you think it means. Budol fight (and its English translation, boodle fight) is a military style of eating where long tables are prepared and food are on top of banana leaves. (Urban Dictionary)

It's popular in Philippine circles and really a fun and unique way to enjoy a meal with friends. This is an eating affair where the more really is the merrier. I suppose there is something to be said about gulping down food, eating with your bare hands, and fighting for that last piece of fried chicken wing in the middle of the spread.

This is definitely one experience you must have, at least once, in your life. And I'm glad we got the chance. We were lucky we got invited to a friend's Budol Fight-themed birthday bash recently.

All you need are banana leaves (for authenticity), the food (for consumption), and your appetite (for satisfaction). If you had all these now, would you all be ready for the fight?
