10 Satisfying Meat-Free Dishes to Get You Through Lent

Just in case you're tired of your usual fish dish.

( Going meat-free this Lenten season? For those days when you're too lazy to whip up your own fish dishes, treat yourself once in a while with these tasty Lenten specials from some of your favorite restaurants. You might end up foregoing beef and pork long after Lent's over.



Ramen Santouka

Get your fill of ramen even if you're avoiding pork this Lenten season with Ramen Santouka's Lenten specials. The Hokkaido Tsukemen has a salmon-and-vegetable broth made even richer with butter, while the Santouka Seafood Ramen is a bowl of assorted seafood in their signature shio broth. Plus, for every order of either bowls, get a Salmon Onigiri on the house! The two specials are available until March 31.

Though known for their steaks and ribs, Morganfield's is making sure you don't feel deprived even in this season of abstinence with their seafood specials. Choose from Tuna and Shrimp Skewers, Celery and Garlic Grilled Mussels, Salad of the Sea, Crab and Spinach Loaded Cheese Fries, and more.

S&R Membership Pizza

For a limited time only, S&R is offering a new pizza flavor, the Holy Crab. Cheesy and filling, this pizza has S&R's signature chewy dough topped with cheese, a cream-based sauce, and crabsticks.

For a quick meat-free snack, 7-Eleven delivers with their new seafood siopao. Choose from two buns: The Tuna Pimiento or the Sisig Mushroom, which has the added bonus of being a vegetarian option.

Quick-service Italian chain Sbarro has several options for those going meat-free this Lent. Fill up on a wonderfully citrusy Salmon Steak, the herby Pasta Primevera or the overloaded Tuna Supreme pizza.


See a list of Sbarro branches. Salmon Steak is only available at selected branches.




For last year's Lenten season, McDonald's added a classic British pairing to their menu, Fish And Fries. It proved to be such a hit because they've brought back again this year. Get their crisp fish fillet and signature French fries with your choice from three kinds of dip: Tartar, Sweet and Sour, or Thousand Island. You can get your fish fillet with rice, too!

Having Jollibee's Tuna Pie has sort of become a Lenten tradition. Whether you're abstaining from meat or not, you'll want to have this flaky pie filled with a rich, creamy, and also slightly tangy tuna filling. We still wish they'll just keep this on the menu forever!

Mama Lou's

Can't eat meat but still want your piece of the (pizza) pie? Satisfy your hankerings at Mama Lou's with their Frutti di Mare pizza, with assorted seafood and garlic on a bed of mozzarella and tomato sauce.

We still can't get over Cibo turning their signature spinach dip into pizza, and luckily for all of us, the Pizza Spinaci Zola is still around to satisfy all our meat-free cravings. Plus, Cibo has an extensive menu of meatless fare for Lent. Choose from Spinaci Zola Pinzimonio (spinach dip with vegetable sticks), Insalata Di Salmone Affumicato (smoked salmon steak with a pear salad), Trancio di Salmone Pomodoro Passato (salmon steak with tomatoes), and more.

8 Cuts

If you missed the special 8 Cuts x Ooma burger, the Soft Shell Crab 'Wich, you're in luck because 8 Cuts is bringing back the hefty burger for Lent. Inspired by Ooma's Soft Shell Crab Taco-Maki, this sandwich overflows with beer-battered soft-shell crab, unagi sauce, aioli, aligue mayo, mango salsa, and more. Having this kind of feels like cheating, with how sinful it is. This is available until March 31.
