We’re on a mission to find healthy and another one of SMA’s best new and healthiest restaurants is BENNU; serving some of the best pizza in SMA. Every crust is made from sourdough organic Mexican flour; thin and delicious. The chef uses only top quality ingredients in all of his food.
Chef Pablo Mil’s grandfather had a restaurant, where he spent much of his time growing up. As a chef, he cooked and traveled to the kitchens of Oaxaca to Copenhagen; spending most of his time at the Hartwood restaurant in Tulum. This chef fit right in with the values of the restaurant, traveling hours to the markets and farms in the interior of the Yucatan to collect ingredients; some of which had not been seen before. All of the cooking at Hartwood was done by open fire within their handmade burning oven and grill.
The tomato salad was made from fresh heirlooms; yellow, green and red tomatoes topped with fried garlic chips and black garlic. His fermented green tomatoes tasted like plantains; an experimental batch in the making that will be used for various salads and toppings.
The menu is both distinct and nutritious; all of the ingredients are local – selected from the best farms and markets around San Miguel. Our pizza choice was the Marinara; a simple yet complex mix with the rich flavor of the Stracciatella. Stracciatella is the inside of the Burrata; our favorite Italian cheese. The pizza was also topped with tomato, garlic, oregano and olive oil. There are 5 other pizzas on the menu. The vegetables include the tomato salad, along with a green salad, corn and chapulines, roasted cauliflower and beet au poivre.
Chef Pablo Mil has brought a simple concept to SMA that works. If you want to eat fresh, healthy and local food, BENNU is the place to do it.
