Boodle Fight at Captain A's Seafood Grill

If you became an ROTC officer way back in college, you might remember having a boodle fight. For those new to boodle fight, it is a fun way of eating where all the food is laid down in front of you on top of banana leaves and everybody eats using their bare hands.

It is this unique experience that one encounters when eating in Captain A's Seafood Grill. You can order from several choices of Boodle Fight menu such as these two below.
The Battle of Mactan
D' Original
Upon serving your meal, the waiters would chant something like, "To the right, To the left...Commence......Boodle Fight!" This adds to  the military boodle fight feel.  By the way, they provide you with improvised gloves made of thin plastic so that you won't worry about the food getting dirty.

Captain A's has branches in  Jose Avila St., Capitol Site near the back of Cebu Doctor's Hospital and also in IT Park. 

The one I visited was the one in Capitol Site. It is spacious and the design of the place was made to give the customers the feel of dining inside a ship since their specialty is Seafoods apparently. I think there is a function room for meetings and also a videoke room although I have not tried it.


Back to the food, the Boodle set meals are good for five with drinks also served good for five persons. The price is just about right. Among the food i sampled, I liked the taste of the shrimps, the kare-kare, adobong manok and baboy mix and the crabs.

The choices are not all set in a Boodle Set Meal. You can order your favorite Filipino dish including Crispy Pata, Kinilaw, Scallops and many others individually. The place is great for barkadas eating and it is this nice barkada atmosphere that makes Captain A's a favorite destination.
