Dropped by the newly-opened Kyuukei Coffee recently. The cosy interior was tastefully furnished and they even have their own line of merchandise.

Both the 𝗙𝗹𝗮𝘁 𝗪𝗵𝗶𝘁𝗲 ($5.00) and 𝗜𝗰𝗲𝗱 𝗟𝗼𝗻𝗴 𝗕𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗸 ($5.00) were medium-bodied and tasted pretty good. The 𝗖𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗿𝘆 𝗧𝗼𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗼 𝗥𝗼𝘀𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝗙𝗼𝗰𝗰𝗮𝗰𝗶𝗮 ($4.00) really impressed as its fragrance and crispness complemented the sweet, tangy profile perfectly.

Definitely a spot I’d return to!

Savoury and umami, the 𝗫𝗢 𝗦𝗰𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗼𝗽 𝗘𝗴𝗴 𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗱 𝗥𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗣𝗼𝗿𝗸 𝗖𝗵𝗼𝗽 ($8.50) was a revelation. The tender pork chop could’ve been more crispy, but was still good.

The sambal deserves special mention. Savoury, spicy and containing crispy dried shrimps, it elevated the fried rice to another level. A very good alternative to DTF fried rice!

I have been wanting to try Mr Egg Fried Rice for the longest time and I finally made the trip. Offering four variations of egg fried rice with a choice of five toppings, it promises a great degree of customisation.

We were delighted with the sour, spicy profile of the 𝗧𝗼𝗺 𝗬𝘂𝗺 𝗘𝗴𝗴 𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗱 𝗥𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗣𝗿𝗮𝘄𝗻𝘀 ($7.90). The crunchy prawns were very tasty too.

Kao Ge Yu offers a variety of 𝘣𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘧𝘦𝘯 (jelly) as desserts and they are a must try. Sweet and refreshing, the 𝗢𝘀𝗺𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗵𝘂𝘀 𝗦𝗮𝗻𝘅𝗶𝗮𝗻 𝗕𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗙𝗲𝗻 ($5.80) was exceedingly enticing and perfect for beating the heat.

We also liked the 𝗖𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗽𝘆 𝗖𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝗣𝗼𝗽𝗰𝗼𝗿𝗻 ($7.80), which were absolutely addictive.

The 𝗠𝗮𝗹𝗮 𝗦𝗰𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗼𝗽 𝗦𝗵𝗿𝗶𝗺𝗽 ($19.80) was a winner. The fresh prawns, beautifully butterflied, and scallops, served with glass noodles, had their flavours enhanced by the scrumptiously spicy sauce.

Among the grilled fish flavours, the Classic Sauerkraut is an astute choice, while the Chongqing and the Hot Mala are ideal for those who like to set their tongues on fire. We picked the wildly popular 𝗦𝗶𝗴𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗦𝗶𝗰𝗵𝘂𝗮𝗻 𝗚𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗻 𝗣𝗲𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗿.

We had the Set Meal For One ($28), which was actually big enough for two, so I’m guessing the Set Meal For Two ($48) can feed four. The meaty Seabass, sensationally soft and moist, soaked up the delicious flavours of the broth (just mildly spicy IMO).

Formerly a hawker stall, Kao Ge Yu is now a restaurant with two outlets. Specialising in grilled fish in different flavours, it also offers some side dishes and desserts.

The two cocktails, 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗣𝗮𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 ($15) and 𝗠𝗼𝗷𝗶𝘁𝗼 ($15) were not only sweet and refreshing, they complemented the food excellently too.

We truly enjoyed the stupendous spread!

We also loved the decadently delicious 𝗢𝗿𝗲𝗼 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝗽𝗲 𝗖𝗮𝗸𝗲 ($7.50).

The creamy and savoury 𝗦𝗵𝗲𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗱’𝘀 𝗣𝗶𝗲 ($15) and the irresistibly crispy 𝗧𝗿𝘂𝗳𝗳𝗹𝗲 𝗧𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗧𝗼𝘁𝘀 ($8) were both delightful.

The 𝗕𝘂𝗳𝗳𝗮𝗹𝗼 𝗖𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝗪𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀 were really tantalising.
