It was my first ever boodle fight at Petra and Pilar! It’s a filipino banquet where A LOT of food is laid out on banana leaves, and you use your hands to eat. I don’t really know why it’s called “boodle”, but maybe it’s because “boodle” means “a lot”, though usually referring to money. My friends also had to teach me how to eat the Aligue Rice with my hands. I ended up rolling it between my palms like an onigiri. It was a fun experience just grabbing food left and right. My favorite has to be the juicy Porchetta Ham with the lechon sarsa! I love the sweet liver gravy! The Bangus Relleno was also good. I grew to love meatloaf in my youth maybe because of the raisins. A bangus relleno is basically a fish loaf! The creamy Buko Pandan takes it home!
Petra and Pilar’s Boozy Boodle include platters containing: BBQ chicken, BBQ pork ribs, beef salpicao, fried spring rolls, calamares, shrimp popcorn, grilled mussels, grilled shrimp, and kilawin. Also not to be missed miss are the cocktails served in coconut shells, which makes the boodle fight all the boozy!
