As a predominantly Catholic nation, Filipinos regard Lenten season as one of the most solemn events of the year. Keeping up with the long-time tradition of abstaining from meat, Max’s Group Inc. (MGI) is offering special alternative meals in its string of restaurants.
“The Lenten season is that time of the year where families and friends come together for a spiritual journey just before Easter,” said MGI Chief Operating Officer Ariel P. Fermin. “With our meatless offerings, we are giving families everywhere an opportunity to bond over good-tasting food while still honoring the religious season.”
