We visited Feast Roxy for the Friday night buffet dinner and here is our must-try list.

Chilled Prawns
Chilled Seafood: Oysters, Crayfishes and Prawns. The oysters are fresh, plump and juicy. While the glossy red colour prawns are sweet and crunchy. I must admit, the crayfishes were not super wow, but you can mix it with your laksa to create a lobster-esque laksa.

Stuffed Tau Pok with Honey Garlic Chicken Meat. One of the signature dishes in Feast Roxy. I remember eating this during my visit a few years back. It has a crunchy exterior, followed by juicy and sweet mince chicken meat. I can easily pop a whole plate of this on one go.

Sour Pickled Mustard Duck Soup. This soup is super delicious and comforting and it really opens up your appetite. The sourness in the robust broth just hit the spot, while the duck flesh is surprisingly juicy and fork tender. Probably the best dish of the night and the most underrated one. LD and I went back for seconds on this soup alone.

Supersize Satay. They are double the size of the satay you find out there. It comes in chicken and mutton. The marinade is sweet and just right, while the thick satay sauce is great. The chefs cook it till the satay has a nice charred externally.

Crispy Pork Knuckle. I just can’t say no to those crispy crackling. It is crispy externally, followed by juicy meat. Though it is good, I think it can be better if the cracking is crispier and the flesh juicier. It is served with sweet roasted sweet potato, grilled capsicums and spicy dark soy sauce.

Noodle Station. We tried the laksa and chicken feet noodle. The laksa is the winner here. The broth is rich, aromatic and spicy. It comes with a smaller prawn compared to the size of the chilled seafood prawn but it is not deshelled. I think they should serve it with deshelled prawns, to make it easier to eat. Meanwhile, the egg noodle in the chicken feet noodle is thin, eggy and QQ. The chicken feet are juicy and crunchy with a hint of mala spiciness at the end.

Hainanese Mutton Stew with Chicken Rice. A surprise discovery. The mutton ribs are juicy and succulent with a subtle mutton gaminess. Cooked with water chestnut, carrots and beancurd skin, it created a multi-texture dish and the overall flavour is very comforting. The seasoning is a bit heavy, so you might want to avoid the gravy. The chicken rice is fragrant, aromatic and filled with chicken flavour. A nice combo to end the savoury selections.

Desserts: Signature Durian Power, Apong Bohkua with Gula Melaka Banana Sauce and Kaya Cream Puff. I eat it in reverse order. The kaya cream puff is light and fluffy, while the kaya fillings just hit the spot. The Apong Bohkua has a strong fermentation but is nicely covered by the gula melaka banana sauce. The Signature Durian Power is just superb. The texture is light yet it is bursting with durian flavours. Not to be missed for durian lovers.

Coffee and Tea are included in the Buffet. I decided to treat myself to an affogato. Yumz!! A sweet ending to the evening.

The décor of the restaurant is modern, functional and filled with Peranakan décor. The place is filled with family and group diners, enjoying the return of Roxy Feast Buffet.

Overall, it was an enjoyable and pleasant meal. As a long-standing buffet restaurant in Marine Parade, Roxy Feast served a good quality buffet, with a good mix of western and local favourites. We recommend the Sour Pickled Duck Mustard Soup, Chilled Seafood, Stuffed Tau Pok with Honey Garlic Chicken Meat, Laksa and Signature Durian Power. Cheers!!
