The Boodle Fight is a Philippine Military Academy tradition where cadets would gather around a long table full of food and rice is spread over banana leaves and eaten with bare hands. It’s a free for all as cadets attack the food until it’s all gone.
Jeepney Restaurant and chefs Nelson Olegario and Albert Lalu are bringing the Philippine Boodle Fight tradition to Winnipeg this Christmas. The Christmas Boodle Fight is piled with popular Filipino food specialities that include lumpiang shanghai, grilled liempo, grilled bangus and crispy pata.
The bowl of soup in the middle of the Boodle Fight can be a choice of sinigang, kaldereta or kare-kare. Accompanying side dishes include ensaladang pipino and mangga and salted eggs. Hiding below all these Filipino specialities is a bed of Jeepney’s own sisig rice.
