Boodle Art & Beyond, and its sister, Dessert Studio and Restohaus recently opened their doors to Cebu’s discriminating palate, which added a unique spin to the already diverse and rich culinary options in the metro.
The idea-turned-family-business originally started at an extra space at home. When the business gained traction and interests from neighbors, friends, and travelers, the home space could not accommodate the surge. The plan of expanding became perspicuous.
The family purchased an unused warehouse and converted it into a chic restaurant. The wooden shelving is made into fine furniture. The lighting fixtures set the comforting ambiance, while the boodle art paintings that hang on its walls reinforces the kind of creativity that the restaurant offers. Each element added a stunning compliment to the interior design.
Boodle Art & Beyond is inspired on Boodle fight, a Philippine army’s group-dining style. Troops gather around a long table where food options are spread across. Rice is normally at the center while the dishes, such as fried or grilled seafood or meat, lumpia, pancit, chicken or pork adobo, and tropical fruit slices are distributed around it. Eating is done bare handedly.
Though the food choices on the table may have evolved as time passes, the camaraderie gets stronger and the experience becomes a lot noteworthy. Ranks and social classes do not matter around the boodle fight table. You eat together and finish all the food together.
