Chef’s Table: Authentic Filipino Boodle Fight Experience

Maricel’s Kitchen is delighted to introduce a truly authentic Filipino dining tradition – the Boodle Fight. This special event, available only by reservation, offers a deep dive into the rich tapestry of Filipino cuisine and culture.

Embark on a Sensory Feast: Our Boodle Fight event is a celebration of flavors and community. Guests will be treated to a lavish spread of Filipino culinary delights, artfully arranged on expansive banana leaves. Imagine a table brimming with grilled seafood delights, juicy pork barbecue, the classic chicken adobo, and a variety of local specialties. This traditional ‘kamayan’ setup, encouraging dining with hands, is not just a meal but a cultural journey.

The table will overflow with an array of mouth-watering specialties such as grilled seafood (inihaw na isda at lamang dagat), succulent pork barbecue (inihaw na baboy), chicken adobo (adobong manok), and various regional delicacies.

Dive into Cultural Richness: The concept of a Boodle Fight has its roots in the Philippine military, symbolizing unity and equality in communal eating. As you sit shoulder-to-shoulder with other food lovers, our expert guides will delve into the stories behind each dish, enriching your dining experience with historical and cultural narratives.

Savor Traditional Drinks and Desserts: Your feast will be accompanied by an assortment of traditional Filipino beverages and desserts. Relish the iconic halo-halo, a creamy concoction of crushed ice, milk, and a medley of sweet ingredients, and other classics like the smooth leche flan and rich ube halaya.

Enjoy an Extended Culinary Experience: Spanning approximately three hours, this immersive dining event allows ample time to savor each dish, engage with the chef, and truly immerse yourself in Filipino dining traditions.

At Maricel’s Kitchen, we invite you to join us for an evening that promises more than just dining. It’s an opportunity to embrace the Filipino spirit of hospitality and togetherness. Book your spot at our table and partake in a night of great food, learning, and heartfelt connections.
