Brunei Sungkai 2017: Rack and Brew Cafe

DSCF8596

When Rack and Brew; Brunei's first boutique lifestyle cafe opened - it was a big hit thanks to their cosy hip ambience, a good range of beautifully presented tasty food, creative cakes and of course good coffee! After last year’s Ramadhan where their Sungkai buffet attracted and wowed huge crowds ~~ this will be the 2nd year for their Sungkai Buffet! I was one of the invited guests to have a sneak preview of their Sungkai buffet - note that I'm already a big fan of their desserts and food especially their beef ribs - I was pretty excited and wondered what's in store!
