When the going gets tough, the tough downgrade their businesses and get on with it.

Weighed down by manpower and rental woes, two popular Cantonese restaurants, Loy Sum Juan and Mitzi, closed and have returned as hawker stalls.

Loy Sum Juan, which wound up at Murray Terrace in March this year, has been revived by its second-generation owner Roy Loi as a stall called 12 Stones Noodle House.

After three months at ABC Brickworks Market & Food Centre, the stall closed yesterday and will re-open at Market Street "Golden Shoe Car Park" Food Centre on Aug 4.
