Brunei has always been blessed with many variety of food which is made out of not only local food, but even food from every corners of the world. Ironic as it may seem, it is no secret that Brunei is well-known among her own people even to her neighbours for the Japanese food.
Excapade Sushi Japanese Restaurant is a name known to every Bruneian for its economical and value for money yet fresh-in-big-portion servings. However, as big a portion that they offer, we never seem to get enough of it. During Ramadhan, Excapade offers their Sungkai (breaking of fast) Buffet is one of the buffet among many that I target. I’m sure I speak for many of my friends as well. Ever dreamt of unlimited amount of sashimi, sushi, tempura, teriyaki? Look no further!
First, the appetizers…
There are also desserts available such as free-flow of ice cream (vanilla and chocolate) flavoured with a variety of toppings you can choose from. There are also various fruits such as apples, oranges and watermelon.
The following are shots of the some pictures of our pickings.
For only BND$29.90 (Adults) / BND$19.90 (Children), this is a buffet definitely not to be missed. If you are a Japanese food lover, you MUST NOT miss this once-in-a-year phenomenon. The Sungkai buffet is only available at the Gadong main branch (+673 2443012) and the Kiulap Regent Square branch (+673 2234011).
Here are some advise if you choose to try it out:
Wait until after the Maghrib prayers before taking the food. Please give way to our Muslim brothers and sisters first.
Try to seat near to the buffet area so that you can spot when they are topping up your favourite dish. Dishes such as the salmon sashimi, ikura salmon sushi, mini california special, among others are the ones that are constantly being taken, so do watch out for new servings!
BOOK early. Excapade’s Sungkai Buffet is one of the favourite buffets therefore it is usually very full.
Excapade tries to vary their dishes being offered, therefore they will rotate the dishes with other types of dishes almost every week. Don’t be surprise if you are seeing different dishes from what I posted here.
Last of all, to all my Muslims friends, “Selamat menunaikan ibadah puasa and may you have a blessed Ramadhan”.
