We’re back in Bentong for Brendan’s final session of treatments with Shīfu. Bright and early, we walked across the street from our budget hotel to a restaurant famous for its 1Dim Sum.

1small bite-sized portions of food served in small steamer baskets or on small plates consisting of various types of steamed buns such as cha siu bao (a steamed bun filled with barbecue pork), dumplings and rice noodle rolls, which contain a range of ingredients, including beef, chicken, pork, prawns, and vegetarian options

My brother in law Vincent brought us here once and we were amazed by how cheap each morsel or serving cost, unlike its brethren Dim Sum restaurants in Kuala Lumpur which runs riot on pricing.

along Jalan Chui Yin

We ordered a round of seven servings:

And then added another six serving for round two!

half the price we usually pay


time to put the camera away!

If you’ve ever been to the various Dim Sum shops along Jalan Ipoh you will know that breakfast at any one of this establishment can be a costly affair. So if you’re every in Bentong in the morning, please give Restoran SHL a try. Just imagine that you’re in Jalan Ipoh but when you pay it will cost you half the usual price, and then some (get it?)
