Bith beans were a type of vegetable that were used in cooking and could be eaten by members of the Besalisk species. The Besalisk chef Dexter Jettster's eatery, Dex's Diner, sold baked Bith beans as a dinner side dish for 3.5 credits. They were served at the diner, which was located in the CoCo Town district of the planet Coruscant, at some point prior to the establishment's destruction during the first two years of the Galactic Empire's rule.
Behind the scenes
Bith beans were first mentioned in the 2009 StarWars.com Hyperspace exclusive article, "Dining at Dex's," which was written by Gregory Walker in the form of an in-universe menu for Dex's Diner. The article did not make clear if there was any connection between the beans and the Bith species.

Notes and references
- The Last of the Jedi: Underworld established that Dex's Diner was destroyed by the Galactic Empire. The Essential Reader's Companion later stated that the novel took place around the year 18 BBY. The New Essential Chronology states that the Empire was formed in 19 BBY, so Dex's Diner was destroyed either during 19 BBY or 18 BBY.
