We tried the Boodle Feast at Blackbeard’s Seafood Island

In Urban Dictionary, Boodle fight is defined as a military style of eating where long tables are prepared and food are on top of the banana leaves. Viands and rice are ready to eat using your bare hands and jugs of water are prepared on the side to wash hands before the “eating combat”.

Blackbeard’s Seafood Island redefined this military tradition with their Boodle Feasts. Meals that are meant for 3-6 people composed of different kinds of viands and rice placed on a big serving tray lined-up with banana leaves.

It includes lots of rice, a crab, mussels, shrimp, grilled tilapia, grilled liempo, grilled chicken, grilled squid, eggplant, seaweeds, tomato and the palest watermelon slices I’ve ever seen.

I’m not a demanding customer and I’m very easy to please. I only want the same two things that everybody else wants: good food and hot food and I am sold. It doesn’t even have to look good. Today, the grilled items in our order didn’t seem to be freshly grilled nor were reheated enough to claim that they are.

But since sis and I haven’t had lunch at 2pm, we still ate heartily. After all, the food didn’t taste bad and the staff were kind enough to give us our requested “bagoong” {shrimp paste}. I was expecting it to be charged to me but they gave it for free.

Here’s a closer shot. I know it’s not watermelon season so I won’t expect sweet, juicy and red watermelon but I wish they replaced it with a different fruit. I bet customers will enjoy the boodle feast much better with, say,  Rambutan or Lanzones, they are fairly cheap at this time.

Sis ordered Crispy Sisig {around P189} which is a bit dry but is delicious, crispy, crunchy and HOT! {Well, it should be because it was served on a sizzling plate.}

Our first order for dessert was Pirate’s Banoffe but they were out of it so Sis ordered  Palitaw with Panutsa instead. I think the sauce was not panutsa but latik. It wasn’t a good combination for me.

Boodles are meant to be attacked….. so we attacked them.

We didn’t mind that we didn’t have poise while eating and it was more enjoyable….

  1.  i love seafood. Except tahong
    and other shells but shrimp, fish, crab and that
    green-burst-like-bubble-in-you-mouth ( i don’t know what its called), are to
    die for.  You and your sis are my new favorite bloggers. Seriously! I’m so
    glad I found your blogs. 🙂 I even told my sisters to check your blogs because
    both of them are mommies and loves to cook too. I’ve been nagging them
    for the past months to blog as well. 🙂 

  2. First off, I need to get this off my chest…

    ang cuteeeee ng mga young ladies ha! I love that last pic of theirs ^_^ Parang triplets hehehe.

    Now, *ehem* about the food, since my allergies from seafood went away (I hope), I’ve been craving for anything with them everywhere we go. And I love the kamayan concept of this restaurant. Ma-try nga.
