Kao Ge Yu offers a variety of ๐˜ฃ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ง๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ (jelly) as desserts and they are a must try. Sweet and refreshing, the ๐—ข๐˜€๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜๐—ต๐˜‚๐˜€ ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜…๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—•๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—™๐—ฒ๐—ป ($5.80) was exceedingly enticing and perfect for beating the heat.

We also liked the ๐—–๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฝ๐˜† ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฃ๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ป ($7.80), which were absolutely addictive.

The ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ฎ ๐—ฆ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฝ ๐—ฆ๐—ต๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฝ ($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 ๐—ฆ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฆ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐˜‚๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—š๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฃ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ.

We had the Set Meal For One ($28), which was actually big enough for two, so Iโ€™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.

And how can we not order nasi lemak when weโ€™re at Crave? You can never go wrong with the ๐—ฅ๐—ผ๐˜†๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ฒ ($8.90), which has a fried chicken wing, fish fillet, bergedil and fried egg in addition to the ikan bilis and cucumber slices. So hearty!

The ๐—–๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐——๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—Ÿ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐˜€๐—ฎ ($6.90) was even more exquisite. The thick bee hoon, having soaked up all the savoury, spicy goodness of the sauce, together with the tender chicken leg, was a truly magnificent medley.

With silky smooth rice vermicelli and succulent chunks of beef, the ๐—•๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ณ ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—•๐—ฒ๐—ฒ ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ป ($7.90) was bound to please. The rendang itself, fabulously fragrant and flavourful, made this dish supremely scrumptious.

Jazz up your mornings with Crave Nasi Lemakโ€™s lineup of Breakfast Delights (available 7.00 to 11.00 am daily). Each set, featuring the newly launched bee hoon or dry laksa, comes with a fried egg and a choice of protein.

Lastly, the varied items in the ๐—ฆ๐˜‚๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ฃ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ($18) were tasty, with the meaty, succulent Chicken Snail Sausage with Sriracha Mayo impressing us.

Not to be missed, the ๐—ก๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜€ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ฃ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ธ๐—ฎ ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ป ($8.90) featured crispy chips and smokey, tender chicken pieces with cheese sauce. The combination of flavours and textures made this insanely irresistible.

The torched cheese made the ๐—™๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—•๐—ผ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ด๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฒ ($8.50) absolutely alluring.

For the first two hotdogs, we upgraded it to a Jumbo Hotdog (+ $2) and for the third, a Cheezy Hotdog (+ $1). The molten cheese that oozed out of the latter was sensational. We also liked that all the sausages were juicy and the buns fluffy.
