Premium Tonnino Tuna
Bianchini’s seafood festival continues with another seafood special. All Tonnino glass jar tuna is 20% off. Tonnino hand cuts and hand packs their tuna in glass jars to show that the quality of each filet is clearly visible and helps keep the filets intact. Tonnino uses the pole and line fishing method to catch their tuna. This ensures that each tuna is wildly caught and sustainable for the ocean by minimizing the bycatch of other fish and sea life. Browse our selection of premium Tonnino tuna and other fine seafood during Bianchini’s Lenten Seafood Festival. And be sure to watch for more delicious deals in the coming weeks.
Perfectly Crunchy Tortilla Chips
Celebrate National Tortilla Chip Day is Saturday, 2/24, with your favorite dip or sauce and a bag of Bianchini’s House Made Tortilla Chips. We hand cut and fry our tortilla chips in small batches, ensuring that they’re perfectly crisp with a satisfying crunch The tortilla chip has a fun history that dates back to the 1940’s. Rebecca Webb Carranza and her husband had an automated tortilla manufacturing machine for their Mexican delicatessen and tortilla factory in southwest Los Angeles. Rebecca noticed that misshapen tortillas were discarded by the machine, and not wanting to have them go to waste, decided to cut them into triangles and fry them. The triangular snacks were sold for a dime per bag and became a hit at the El Zarape Tortilla Factory. For her contributions to the Mexican food industry, Rebecca was awarded the Golden Tortilla in 1994.
