Excapade Sungkai Buffet 2014

Another year has passed, and Ramadhan is upon us again.  Likewise, Excapade Sushi Restaurant has not failed to continue their tradition of offering their infamous Sungkai Buffet.  I had the priviledge of being there for their first day of Sungkai Buffet this year and not suprisingly, it was a full house, and the bookings for the rest of the week has already reached full!

I’ve written about Excapade’s Sungkai Buffet for two years now, so I will skip the introduction of the dishes and tell you more about the differences this year.  The previous years review of the buffet is still quite applicable as many of the dishes are still featured.  Here are the links to the article about Excapade Sungkai Buffet 2012, Excapade Sungkai Buffet 2013. and Excapade Sungkai Buffet 2013 Round 2!

In order to offer a more complete and full buffet experience, this year’s Excapade Sungkai Buffet has all the effort and zattention is focused in Excapade’s Regent Square branch and offers more than 60 all-time favourite dishes, which also includes any sushi on the sushi belt!

From the feedbacks of their customers, the management of Excapade has now divided the area into 4 main sections: The Sushi section which is placed on two sushi belts (Yes, you can grab any sushi from the sushi belt), The Main dishes section, The Desserts section (which includes a fantastic expresso machine!) and of course, the Sashimi section which is the main attraction every year.  I’ve found that the separation of each section has eased the flow significantly.  Now, instead of everyone queuing in one area, one can now choose to start off in the section with the less queue.

THE SASHIMI SECTION

I believe the all-you-can-eat sashimi has and still remains the main attraction to the Sungkai Buffet.  No where else can one get this many variety of sashimi to eat.  As food blogger Thanis Lim puts it, he has achieved ‘Sashimi Coma’.

THE SUSHI SECTION

In previous years, the sushi has been placed on trays next to the sashimi.  This year, sushi is now available on the moving sushi belt, just feel free to take any sushi of your liking from the belt.  I find this extremely convenient when there is a queue in the other areas.  Just pick and go.

THE MAIN DISHES SECTION

The heavy artillery of the arsenal can be found here.  If the sashimi and sushi is not enough to comatose you, then the dishes here will.  Offering the best all-time favourite dishes such as the Salmon Asparagus, Lamb Misoyaki, Beef Teppanyaki, Green Mussels and many more!

SUMMARY

For the convenience of readers who are not sure where the Regent Square branch is (especially the die-hard Japanese food lovers from Miri, Temburong and Limbang), here is the location map to it.

Map to Excapade Regent Square

Excapade has once again out-done themselves.  Now with the better distribution of the different food sections, the pick & go sushi belt, the espresso machine, the buffet experience was even more pleasant than before.  Occasionally, the Excapade waiters and waitresses went table to table to serve various sushi and desserts.

Excapade’s Sungkai Buffet is priced at BND$29.90 for adults and BND$14.90 for children (aged 6-12 years old).  It is a MUST to make reservations (Excapade Regent Square +673 2234011) days beforehand as this is one of the most in-demand buffet in the nation.
