The Farm at San Benito is proud to announce the opening of its new pescetarian restaurant this July. Like the Alive! Restaurant, which is focused on organic plant based vegan cuisine, PESCE will also include fresh organically produced vegetables in its line of scrumptious dishes.
The new restaurant got its name, quite fittingly, from the Italian word “PESCE,” meaning fish. PESCE is a separate restaurant which offers pescetarian dishes, focusing on health and the longevity of life and taking inspiration from the Mediterranean Blue Zone® diet. PESCE’s menu consists of organic living foods, like whole grains, fruits vegetables, and sustainable seafood as a source of protein for a complete and balanced meal.
Fish for Health
As they say, all roads lead to Rome. Not in terms of good health though, but there’s more than one way to peel an orange. While it is possible to get all the nutrients you need in a vegan diet, choosing the pescetarian path is a good option for those who may feel dissuaded by an entirely plant-based diet, or for those who may have some difficulties getting the sufficient amount of protein that they need. PESCE’s menu don’t just include fish but also focuses on the longevity of life. Some studies have found that in places where people generally live the healthiest and the longest, the diet consists mainly of plants with a small amount of fish.
Guests can rest assured that nothing fishy is going on here – apart from the star of the dish, that is. In line with The Farm’s commitment to using only the best ingredients, all the free-range fish and other seafood are freshly caught that same day.
PESCE and the Menu
Each course will feature a type of seafood as the main part of the dish. Below are just some of the mouth-watering items from the menu guests can look forward to. A few among the rest are:
- Caesar salad with grilled grouper fillet
Organic Romaine lettuce tossed in vegan Caesar dressing, garnished with golden brown unbleached flour croutons, sprinkled with vegan parmesan cheese, and served with grilled fillet of grouper (known locally as lapu-lapu).
- Brick-Oven-Baked Salmon Roulade
Brick-oven-baked salmon, filled with macadamia bell pepper cheese, deglazed with aromatic hoisin sauce, served with pineapple black rice and fresh salad rolls in almond butter sauce.
- Spaghetti Nero di Seppia
Spaghetti with squid and squid ink on cream and white wine, garlic garnished with chop parsley.
- Lobster Bisque
A smooth, creamy lobster coulis topped with lobster meat and organic fresh tarragon served with home-made focaccia bread.
Guests also have the option to enjoy the delicious food inside the Mediterranean-inspired restaurant or to be closer to nature through al fresco dining. With a total of 40 seating capacity, PESCE will be serving dinner for a couple of nights before moving to its regular business hours from 11:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. Prior reservations will be required.
