Boodle fight in Captain A's

Boodle fight in Captain A's

"Boodle fight is a military style of eating where long tables are prepared and food are on top of the banana leaves. Viands and rice ready to eat using your bare hands, jugs of water are prepared on the side to wash hands before the "eating combat". With the signal to start the boodle fight, everyone aims for his/her position" - the urban dictionary.

Yes, its Filipino's unique way of eating, out of the resources we have available. Since it got very famous now, not just in the Philippines (maybe), a local restaurant come up with a peculiar idea to bring it closer to the people where you don't need to be in the military to try an authentic Boodle Fight experience. 

Captain A's, is gaining popularity because of the Boodle fight style of preparing their food. You will eat on a table with banana leaves neatly piled up, yet their might not be a jug of water for you to wash your hands but the combat style of eating is still there. A loud shout from the crew will signal your start to dig in and enjoy your meal either bare hands or using spoon and fork.




It is truly one of a kind experience when you visit Cebu, Philippines. You can visit Captain A's in IT park's Skyrise building and in the new location in Capitol site where they also have a coffee shop they call Kapihan Sa Captain A's.

  2. I thought boodle type of dining just happens in the military or family going to the beach. This place is very interesting and the dishes are mouth watering.

  3. Yey for boodle fight and boo for me for not having to have that experience yet, though we do have some restos who offer this. I'm sure it would be really fun!

  4. I only had one experience of boodle fight for lunch and it was not good. I don't like eating messily with hands and without utensils. :|

  5. I, on the other love the idea. When we were young my sisses and I would eat with our hands especially if it is fried fish or humba. It was fun!

  7. I haven't tried the boodle fight style of eating. It's a bit messy for me. But if there's a choice, I would use the eating utensils for me to eat.

    If you want to visit Davao, you might want to try Seafood Island in Abreeza and SM City Davao - Annex.. :D

  8. I can't remember the last time I used my hands to eat. It's quite messy but there's fun and pinoy heritage when we use our fingers to eat instead of the utensils.

  11. Had a short trip to Cebu a while back but I haven't tried Captain A, that boodle looks promising, how's the pricing? Though food destinations at Cebu seemed really affordable.
