These food chains offer meat-free dishes (with special discounts) this Holy Week

Thank God we don’t need to worry about what to eat this week

Most Filipinos who are born into Catholic families strictly observe some annual traditions during Holy Week. One of which is abstaining from meat as a way of reflecting on spiritual health. While some allot time to prepare a meat-free menu for the entire week, others get so focused on strengthening their faith (through reading the Bible, doing an online Visita Iglesia or participating in “Pabasa ng Pasyon”) that they forget to cook or even eat. 

Now if you’re one of these people, you might want to order in instead. As much as we support your Holy Week activities, your body still needs nutrition. So to help you with that, we’ve compiled a list of food chains that offer non-meat dishes and that are only a few phone taps away—some of them even offer special discounts.

Pho Hoa

Who isn’t obsessed with pho these days? It’s a popular Vietnamese broth dish that has rice noodles, herbs and meat. Yup, meat. But don’t worry, you can still satisfy your pho cravings without breaking your tradition by ordering Phở Chay, a vegetarian pho made with mushroom broth garnished with a bunch of greens, from Pho Hoa via the SM Malls Online app or SM Takeout & Delivery on Viber.

Pho Hoa also has a dedicated menu for the Lenten season. So if you feel like partnering your pho with something else—say rice paper rolls, tofu, bean curd or sauteed kangkong—they got your back.
