Brendan and Cat were exhausted after undergoing Shīfu
’s treatment so we headed back to our budget
hotel to rest and recuperate. I believe that we’ve not mentioned this before,
but whenever we are in Bentong to visit with my parents we usually put up the
night at Hotel Kristal.
in the heart of Bentong town, this budget hotel is strategically placed and
within walking distance to most eateries, a supermarket, a wet market and even
the famous Bentong Walk which is described as a lively, Saturday-only night
market featuring street food, local handicrafts & live performances.
napping for an hour they were famished, since they were still exhausted and did
not wish to expend any more energy than necessary we decided on a coffee shop
just across from our budget hotel.
simple ‘food court’ where different vendors peddle their dishes, Kopitiam
Bentong Jaya seemed to be very popular among the locals.

our delight, they provided the two staple food that our family enjoys: Chicken
Rice and 1Char Kueh Teow. Cat and I had the Chicken Rice with an
added plate of 2Char Siu while Brendan ordered his perennial
favourite, the Char Kueh Teow.

had no complaints about the Chicken Rice with Char Siu; Brendan enjoyed his Char
Kueh Teow so much that he ordered a second helping.

sixty kilometres away from Kuala Lumpur we observed a noticeable drop in the
prices of food. So it was a pleasant surprise that lunch for the three of us
cost around RM25 only. That too after the fact that Brendan had to servings of Char
that’s the everyday food for the everyday person!
