As previously suggested two identical frames side by side work,
one ragged right and the other ragged left.
Another solution is one frame with all information ragged right. Each
line is a separate paragraph. In the story editor on each line
highlight the price and shift it to ragged left by clicking on the
ragged left icon.

Finally, TeX has a \ldots tag that takes up all the extra space
and fills it with dot leaders. The code is:
Fried Fish\ldots $4.95
The TeX output could then be imported as a pdf file into your
Scribus page. 

None of these require tabs.
