THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bennachin Restaurant Review

: The West African roots of much New Orleans cooking can be found at Bennachin, a modest and colorful place featuring the traditional cooking of Gambia and Cameroon. The namesake rice dish, with sausage and peas, is a probable ancestor of Louisiana’s jambalaya. The red beans and rice, a Crescent City staple for generations, takes on an exotic tinge with ginger. Fried shrimp balls, fried plantains and an African okra soup similar to gumbo are also tasty. Brightening the atmosphere are boldly colored paintings and fabrics from the owners’ home countries.
