RuYi had been with the market for more than 30 years by now. My mum told me that it used to be run by a nun before & now you can see a few elderly Cantonese taking care of the stall. You can always see long queues infront of the stall. They serve only very traditional vegetarian mee hoon & mee with mock duck, chicken, charsiew, & slightly cooked vege as in photo below.
I think people like it for its traditional & simplicity way of cooking. Personally, I thinks its well marinated green chilli plays a great part in adding flavour to its plain meehoon which is reasonably well cooked. I don't like its glutton ingredients like mock duck & charsiew but I love its beancurd skin mock chicken which I think they are stingy in providing even if I ask them to just give me purely mock chicken for ingredients. Well, what more to ask for $2 a plate.
On the other hand, I help the other stall Cong Cong to feel stressful with long queues infront of their competitors. Usually, I could not stand the long queue of Ruyi so I usually patronise this stall. The stall had changed owner/chef last year a few months after moving back to the renovated market. To be competitive, besides having those standard vegetarian meehoon package, it allows us to choose 3 vege of our choice with rice, meehoon or mee at $2. It retained the specialty fried maggie mee that previous owner always sell. Taste wise ok lah, a good alternative as I don't like the standard vegn set with mock ingredients.
