I love to have Asian food. Being a frequent traveler, everywhere I go I try to taste different foods coming from that part of the world. When I am in my hometown, I like to go to Ben Da, an amazing Chinese restaurant in the city centre.
This place can offer you a fantastic selection of all Asian foods, from Chinese to Indian, from Thai to Vietnamese. Located at the first floor of an historic building, Ben Da is a simple spot with no fancy furniture to be honest, but the food is simply amazing. Moreover, it is extremely cheap. You can get your take away order or sit down: my tip is getting a table (no reservation needed) and let the owner (who tells people to call her Silvia even if she’s from China) give you some tips from the menu. My picks are the spicy Thai soup and the green Chinese veggies that come from the nearby Porta Palazzo market with ginger or garlic: delicious.
If you definitely want to have Asian food for your dinner but you are not still convinced on Chinese, Indian or something else, go there: I love the freshness of their food and the fact that they cook everything on order, with no ready-made food.
You will not regret a stop here.
