Forget plates: This local Filipino spot serves your feast right on the table

Boodle Fight: Possibly one of the funniest terms to describe a way to eat a meal.

This traditional Filipino kind of eating, which is when food is served on top of banana leaves spread out on the table, and no utensils are allowed, originated with the military in the Philippines, where men of all ranks would sit down, roll up their sleeves and dig in to eat together.

Another term for this kind of eating is the Tagalog word “kamayan.”

If you’re looking to get your hands on some of this style of eating, you can head to Surrey to Grandt Kitchen, where you can indeed order up a Boodle Fight.

Their Boodle Fight meal is a feast of grilled meat, seafood, veggies, salad, sauces, and deep fried garlic heaped on rice, set out on your table on banana leaves.

It costs $100 plus tax for a table of 4 or 5 adults, and you’ll need to call ahead and book a reservation. You can also book it for larger parties–that’s one helluva way to do a birthday dinner, right?!
