Organic Gastronomic Fare

A healthy, delicious and, aesthetically appealing nutrient-rich vegan cuisine.  The Farm at San Benito promotes all-natural menu thru their in-house restaurant, Alive! Restaurant- one of Asia’s first and best restaurants offering vegan cuisine that proudly serves delectable raw food. From 2006 to 2016.

The Vegan Practice 

Being Vegan is a way of life by which food selection is free from any forms of animal exploitation. Making conscious positive choices and philosophies on how we look at food and its consumption.  In addition, this lifestyle lessens risks to chronic illnesses through a plant-based diet.

Delectable Creation


The Farm at San Benito shares its 3 pertinent approaches to healing and wellness—the soundness of mind, body, and spirit. Good food fuels the mind, body, and spirit to combat the daily aggressors.

All-natural ingredients and meticulous food preparation

The preparation and cooking methods retain the optimum amount of enzymes and nutrients needed by our body. Fresh fruits and vegetables are prepared raw or blanched. Food is prepared using innovative methods to deliver world-class masterpieces. Dehydration and fermentation practices are two manners by which Alive! preserves the plant’s life force. The former prevents the growth of microorganisms that will spoil the food. This gives the vegetables a longer shelf life without the addition of toxic chemicals and preservatives. While the later serves as a good source of beneficial bacteria.
