It's the season for Ramadan buffet previews again, where there will be an influx of ramadan themed posts. This time around, I had the opportunity to check out Armada Petaling Jaya's "Berbuka Puasa" at their Utara Coffee House. Themed "Warisan Tradisi Kampung", their team of culinary experts whipped out a storm of mouth-watering traditional and international favourites.
