Boodle Fight at Tayabas!

It's my Life, lifestyle, Quezon Province, relationship, travel Add comments

Boodle fight is a term used A boodle fight is a messy and seemingly uncivilized yet extremely practical way of serving a meal to a large group of people when in the middle of nowhere and eating  utensils are not easily available. In simpler terms, when you put banana leaves on a flat surface and then pour all the rice you have and the viands of veggies, meat and seafood, then you can start the boodle fight!

I remember when I was 10 years old,  we went to what we call our “bundok” which my grandmother inherited from her parents. I went there with my paternal cousins, titas and titos. We brought along 12 cans of sardines and there we had a picnic. There were no utensils available. I remembered my Tito Afin cut several banana leaves we ate there with our hands. Just nice to remember the old days in Quezon. :)

Well, there are places in Tayabas, Quezon which the whole family can really enjoy boodle fight. There’s an available utensils there, though. But the whole family can really enjoy eating with their hands. If you’re heading to Lucban, Kamayan sa Palaisdaan will be on the right side of the road. When ney and I had our visit to Lucban, we had our lunch there.  

Of course I had my picture taken there.. :)

Another resto that you can go to is located in the opposite side of it. It is called Palaisdaan Restaurant. I researched on the owners of the two restaurants and found out that they’re actually siblings. Hmmm..

Ney and I had a lunch here as well during one of my visits to Lucena. We had a lot of fun for we were serenade by their staff. :)


Aside from enjoying the feast, the ambiance, the two restos are actually floating restaurants!

Another place that I love going to in Tayabas is the Graceland Estate. I believe it was patented to Elvis Priestly’s Graceland in the US. But you need to be a member to enjoy its facilities. Luckily! Ney’s father is a member and ney is a dependent. So, we’re able to enjoy the place and its facilities.  A family can have picnic, go swimming and enjoy jacuzzi, which we did! :)  

Of course! How can I forget to have my picture taken?!?

Well, like many other places in the Philippines, Quezon offers great places to go to.  And I really love going to these places. Hope you can visit them, too.
