As part of Mexico’s traditions and specifically of Catholic believers, on February 26, Ash Wednesday began and so did Lent.
In Lent, according to the Catholic church, fasting and prayer should be done, as something symbolic of what Jesus Christ did in the desert.
In addition, Lent lasts for 40 days, except for Sundays and it is said that meat should be avoided.
If you are a meat lover and also a Catholic, we present some seafood restaurants in which you can survive Lent in Tijuana.
This famous place in Tijuana, located on Blvd Díaz Ordaz 949 La Mesa, 22105, has a menu ready to satisfy you on any date. Despite always having a good atmosphere, one of your tacos may come with a touch of the well-known La Perrona Sauce, created by one of its collaborators.

If you still don’t know this place, located on Boulevard Insurgentes 17969, 22210, this is the right time to do it, because despite enjoying their tacos, tostadas, cocktails and prepared drinks, on this Lent, you can taste their traditional Capirotada (traditional Mexican food similar to a bread pudding that is usually eaten during the Lenten period).

Spend a family time at this seafood place, located on Blvd. Lázaro Cárdenas 17102, Otay Constituyentes 22457, which brings a different concept to Tijuana. And not only in Lent, because what characterizes it is not its banda music specifically, but Reggae music and its dishes with names inspired by Baja California.
