Blackbeard’s Seafood Island: Boodle Feast Food Attack!

The idea of a boodle fight can be overwhelming. Vast amounts of food, dumped on banana leaves, to be attacked by all. Attack is the only proper way to refer to it—there is no way you can be poised and refined when boodlefighting.

Federosa Boodle Feast

We will not lose!

Blackbeard’s Seafood Island takes this proud military tradition and downscales it for smaller groups with their Boodle Feasts; shared group meals that’s good for 3-4 or 5-6. These are the kinds of meals students at military friendly colleges will appreciate. Stepping inside Blackbeard’s, we had no idea about what to eat. We just wanted to explore someplace new. The Boodle Feast sounded good; a little bit of everything to please everyone.


On the bright side, you don’t need to stink up your house for Balo-balo.

They have a wide selection of Boodle Feasts, following different themes. We had the Federosa. I can only assume that it’s their Kapampangan themed boodle feast. It had sisig, tocino, inihaw na hito (grilled catfish), halabos na hipon (steamed shrimp), balo-balo (fermented fish), mango mix, atchara (pickled vegetables), itlog na maalat (salted eggs) and sliced tomatoes. Served with it is a large amount of rice, both plain and garlic fried rice. Overwhelming, yes?


Happiness is sizzling sisig.

You’d think we’d stop there, yes? But nooooo, someone had to order Ensaladang Inihaw na Talong (Grilled Eggplant Salad) as well. Oh. Wait. I think that was me. *facepalm*

Ensaladang Inihaw na Talong

Who would want to pass up on Inihaw na Talong?

Did we conquer the feast, or did we lose the battle? Unfortunately, we got outboodled as we had a lot of leftovers, but we put up a really good fight. Judging by the contented sighs and discrete burps, it was a winner of a meal. More than just a multitude of dishes, it was a delicious feast. It delivered on quantity, variety, taste and even value for money. Highly recommended.

Dayap Shake

Dayap. Not just for leche flan!

They have normal ala carte options too, but I’m not too sure about their value. We came back and ordered some normal dishes and I found it a bit pricier. It doesn’t break the bank, but it’s not as affordable as I’d like. Oh, and their dayap shake deserves special mention. It packs a punch, being both flavorful and refreshing. It’s perfect for washing down this gluttonous feast. So, be ready to throw down the gauntlet—then wash your hands well, and be ready to challenge this evil feast.

  6. I’ve always looked at the Araneta Center branch with mild curiosity, a curiosity that, unfortunately, has never been appeased. :(

    @small house
    I agree. It definitely brightens up the eating experience.

    For both you and nuts? 😛

    I hope you get a chance. I’m curious to try the other meals as well.

    Why not do it yourself? 😀 Boodlefight, Arizona-style!

    @Ichiro Ino
    Never too late to start 😀

    I’ve seen some people swear by their Crab dishes. Apparently, it’s owned by Red Crab. Maybe it’s time to give in?
