Boodle Is More Fun In The Philippines

Today marks the 9th year of Seafood Island in the Philippines and what better way to celebrate with its very own National Boodle Day. For those who are wondering, Seafood Island was the one who popularized 'boodle" in the metropolis. Of course, this is not the usual "kamayan" but rather, a group "kamayan" of sorts. According to urbandictionary.com boodle originated from the military wherein it is called "the boodle fight or a military style of eating where long tables are prepared and food are on top of banana leaves. Viands and rice are ready to eat using your bare hands." 



For this year's National Boodle Day. I, along with 3 other bloggers were assigned at the Seafood Island's Robinsons Magnolia Branch. A 15-mins boodle eating contest was scheduled for lunch. According to the Manager, Ms. Josie, the three teams were chosen from their list of frequent diners, or should I say- boodlers? Each team has four members.


Ready ... get set ... GO!


And the boodle war begins ...


Please watch Boodle War here ...

And the winners are .... Team 3 !!! Burp !!!


Congratulations Team 3 for winner the contest. They won by finishing their boodle for about 6 mins and a few seconds. Oh my! Amazing. The winners get Boodle GCs which they can use on a later date, and this time around they can eat their boodle at a leisure pace.


And here's our team ---- alas, we finished off our boodle for more than 60 minutes! hahaha



Again, we'd like to congratulate Seafood Island for celebrating its 9th Boodle Year and wishing the restaurant more boodle years to come! :)

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!
