Captain A’s Seafood Grill's Boodle Fight

Captain A’s Seafood Grill is a Filipino-inspired grill house restaurant that is the first in Cebu to bring in the concept of the Philippine military boodle fight tradition to casual dining.

The boodle fight is a Philippine military eating tradition, originally practiced by the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) cadets, wherein members of the military— regardless of rank, no pretentions whatsoever—gather around a long table where a jumble of food is spread over banana leaves or old newspapers, and eaten with bare hands, as a symbol of fraternity and equality.

The boodle fight is usually prepared in celebration after a successful event or for a special occasion.
