Dining Out at Beni Asia, April 2018

This month our diners enjoyed a very good meal at the newly renovated Beni Asia in Benitachell. The transformation is a huge improvement, softened, with round tables, soft benches along the side, plants, and strange wooden futuristic trees reaching up to the ceiling. Our hosts had arranged for upgraded wines, and Freixenet greeting cava on arrival, a very nice touch, also a personal greeting from the diminutive owner, the charming Fan Fan. Starters and Peking duck with pancakes were followed by a succession of eight different and interesting tasty dishes which seemed to just keep on coming. We then finished with dessert, coffee, and a choice of “chopita”, a small liqueur. The numbers attending were a little disappointing, possibly because people´s perception was of the old Beni Asia. Do not be put off, give it a try – you may just be tempted back! Many thanks as always to our hosts for this month, Peter and Pauline Griffiths.

We also had a super evening the following week on 24th April.  Food and service were excellent and we shall definitely be going back.  I have added a few more photos to the gallery.
