LIST: Restaurants that Offer Lenten Season Specials
The Lenten Season is one of the most important holidays in the Catholic tradition. It’s a time of prayer and reflection as much as it is a time of abstinence and fasting—two of the usual practices that most Catholics follow and observe during this season.
Catholics, usually from age 14, with the exception of senior citizens and those with illnesses, fast and abstain as a form of sacrifice in this 40-day period. Thus, you’ll often see Catholics who lessen their intake of food, particularly meat, if not, no meat at all. For this reason, some restaurants in the Philippines offer menus exclusively for the Lenten season.
Here are some of the restaurants that offer Lenten specials:

Kitsho offers dishes that give a nod to the Lenten season with seafood options in their a la carte and buffet menus this April. You can enjoy their lunch buffet that comes complete with unlimited iced tea and their dinner buffet that has one round of red or white wine or beer. You can also enjoy their set meal option that’s composed of miso soup, green salad, rice, a main course of either white fish or shrimp, and pumpkin carrot jello bars for dessert.
