Ru Lai Vegetarian @ Thomson

I've long heard my cousins rave about this stall as they adore the food here as much as we adore Zi Zai in Tampines. So one of the night after visiting grandma, we finally decided to drive there to eat. Seems to be the only stall operating at night.. and the entire coffee shop was really crowded. Do note that this Ru lai has no relation with the Ang Mo Kio Ru Lai (note that i've yet blogged on this too~) at all. Its quite common to see similar stall names in SG.
The stall is a typical Tze Char stall but has a little carrot cake wok at the side. I've read other reviews and found that the carrot cake is good here!

Anyway since it was our first time to this stall, we leave it to my aunt and cousin to introduce.

Tofu with abalone hotplate $12

Beautifully presented, this tofu dish is a MUST try! The tofu and mushrooms and abalone are stir fried in a homemade special sauce, then served on top of omlette in a hot place. The taste of the gravy is wonderful. Not too salty and has a little spice in it. Most importantly, it is rare to find abalone in such dishes, and there were many piece of it! Love it with rice! Do notify the stall owner if you do not take eggs to omit the egg below.

Sambal Kang Kong

Aint too spicy and tastes just right. Common dish that can be found elsewhere too.

Butter Abalone Mushrooms

In chinese this dish is usually known as 奶油田鸡..supposed to look like frog legs? Anyway, this is basically abalone/oyster mushrooms that are deep fried in batter, then cooked in carnation milk, Hence it will have a sweet and crunchy bite. Not suitable for vegans though. You can find this dish at Zi Zai Tampines as well as Ru Lai AMK.

Soup of the day

Soup of the day was lotus roots soup. Fresh and healthy.

Crispy Peking Duck


I tried to open up and analyse what makes up this dish but couldn't as it was too thin! I think it is mock meat that is wrapped in beancurd skin and flour then deep fried. You may eat it with the Yong Tau Foo Sweet Sauce. It would have been perfect if there is popiah skin to go with it. Anyway, really crispy and tasty!


Carrot Cake

If you recall most of the carrot cakes I eat are black cos' i always love it a little sweeter. Anyway, my cousin loves the white version. Nothing special as it still cannot be compared to uncle's. hahah!

I remember we also ordered oyster cake but I forgotten to take the picture. Tasted normal too. I do not recall the rest of the prices, but we paid $51 for 5 pax and the above dishes. Hence this is definitely worth the price. Note that these are all medium dishes. Meaning, if you do have lesser pax, you may order a smaller size. My cousin even had to ta bao the carrot cake and oyster cake home as we were too full already. I will definitely come back again.

Can someone confirm if the stall is still there in 2015? I can't find it in Blk 24.
