Monday Night My Prix Fixe is Back at Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion

Once again, guests have the option to make their own three-course meal at Roy’s restaurants for a heck of a deal. I say once again because this time last year I was musing about a similar deal.

Oh, before I go any further I must say that I was invited to check out this offering. That aside, I’m a fan of Roy’s and go there even without fancy invites. The setting, quality of the service, and the damn good chow are what keep me going back.

If you’ve never been to Roy’s – and especially if you have – their My Prix Fixe deal is a great way to poke around the menu. For $35.99 per person, you get the run of the house: choose any appetizer, any entrée, and any dessert. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part you can pick just about anything. With some entrees running upwards of $30 alone, this deal is like getting your appetizer and dessert for free…sort of. :)

If you go with a friend or two, you can mix up your choices and make you own Hawaiian fusion feast. You also have the option of sharing just one plate if you’d like to keep your dinner cozy.

But trust me, once you taste the miso seasoned butterfish, sharing will be the last thing on your mind!

Following is a quick review of the items I tried a few Monday’s ago. Among the items are a couple old favorites and a few new ones. Enjoy!

Drinks

Roy’s has happy hour from 4:30 – 6:30 PM every day. Get there early for dinner and you’ll score $5 drinks including the signature Roy’s Island Mai Tai and The Original Hawaiian Martini. All the signature cocktails are $5 so mix and match.

Roy’s Island Mai Tai

Roy’s Island Mai Tai - Don't stir it! Ask the bartenders why and they will let you know. I always stir mine anyway. :/

Appetizers

The Crispy Potato Croquettes were new to me. They were good but definitely needed the sauce for flavor elevation.

Crispy Potato Croquettes - Eat them with the sauce and the little veggies on top for maximum flavor.

Entrées

If its your first time at Roy’s heed these words: get the butterfish! It keeps me coming back time and again and I’m never disappointed.

Hawaiian Style Misoyaki Butterfish

Hawaiian Style Misoyaki Butterfish - The ultimate entree at Roy's. If they only sold this they'd still be in business.

Branching out a bit, I also tried the Brown Butter Seared Salmon as was pleasantly surprised. It was like two dishes in one. The fish was served skin on, with the meat being very tender and the skin crispy. The salmon was like you might expect this firm fish to be and the skin was good enough to eat on its own, adding to the overall texture.

Brown Butter Seared Salmon - A new favorite for me. If they ever run out of butterfish, I'll order this.

Dessert

I tried a few desserts. Don’t judge!

The chocolate cake is a must-try if you’ve never had it. Its nothing like the heat-and-serve cakes you’ll get at other places; they bake each cake from scratch when you order it and then lovingly stuff it with chocoloately goodness.

Chocolate Cake - its a made from scratch classic! Order it at the same time you order your entree; it takes about 20 minutes to make it.

Another fave is the pineapple upside down cake served with pineapple-coconut ice cream. Like every dessert should be, this plate is an escape from the ordinary. The cake is moist and the topping slightly crispy. Both are sweet but not overwhelmingly so. This is another one that might be tough to share!

  1. That butterfish looks delicious! I went to Roy’s when I was in Hawaii. I’ll have to check em out over here sometime.

  2. Yes! I hope to check out the one near Honolulu soon. But here in So Cal we have lots of options to choose from. I’m thinking about heading out to the Valley or Pasadena locations for my next butterfish feast. :)
