Don't need to be a vegan to enjoy this stall's offering .
This is another of my reviews of hawker stalls. But I only review stalls that have that "X" factor, or shall I translate that into : long established, household name and "top of mind" effect. This all added up to frequent long queue. Such stalls are the de facto "go to" place when your cravings kicks in. You don't consider others, just that special one. So much that should you dine at stalls offering similar fare, you felt compromised and less satisfied. In food, it's not so much a mental perspective, it's a taste bud thing.
So what's about Ru Yi vegetarian food (more than 30 years in the business) that endears itself to many a loyal clientele base? While there many vegetarian food stalls at most food centres islandwide, you can't deny the gluten based topping all tasted somewhat similar. Something about Ruyi's offering, with it's non-oily fried white bee hoon, toppings of mock meats, deep fried bean curd skins and vegetables tasted just perfect when drenched with the balanced mild gravy. It's just that - simple and elegant. Nothing ostentatious. Just remember to ensure the helper include the pickled green chillies. It gives the meal a nice little kick.
For those packing takeway orders and prefer not to have their bee hoon soggy, just inform the stall helpers and they will give you gravy in a separate plastic bag (which they already pre-packed) without extra charges. Great service!
There are quite a few other vegetarian food outlets elsewhere using the name Ru Yi , Ru Yi Garden,...I am not certain if they are related. But I do know, when I am in Tiong Bahru Food Centre and I wanted vegetarian beehoon, it's no one else but Ru Yi. (^_^)
