What is a … Filipino “Boodle Fight” A “boodle fight”

hails back to Filipino military tradition that dispenses with cutlery and dishes. Diners practice kamayan, Filipino for “eating with the hands.”

The food is placed on top of a long banana leaf-lined trestle table and in the true military practice,diners do not sit in chairs, but instead stand shoulder to shoulder in a line on both sides of the table.

A senior officer or enlisted personnel then utters the traditional command for the boodle fight to begin: ”

Ready on the left, Ready on the right, Commence boodle fight!”
