Vallarta Supermarkets’ lent menu launches store-wide offering a variety of options during Lent season beginning (March 2nd through April 17th), for those forgoing meat during the observance.
The Hispanic grocery chain said customers following a Lenten diet can enjoy tasty meatless alternatives to the familiar authentic foods they love.
“Our lent menu offers traditional favorites with meatless alternatives full of flavor,” said Andrew Lewis, Vice President of Marketing, Vallarta Supermarkets. “Any customer forgoing meat doesn’t mean fewer options, at Vallarta we have you covered.”
New to this year’s menu is a hearty and comforting bowl of traditional lentil soup, also serving other favorites including Baja-Style battered fish tacos, authentic ceviches made in-store with the freshest ingredients, and seasonal bread pudding- capirotada.
