If anyone else has other links, please post them here. One can never have too much choice when it comes to turkey and stuffing.

Future rapes, past Thanksgivings, what's going on here? Yeah, I steal a 10 Mag when I can, and have seen Highstreet's Thanksgiving advertisements in there the last two. I missed this last year but would be curious about which places have the best offerings. I was brought up on those extravagant, cook all day Thanksgivings and certainly miss the stuffin', as well as many other things. That's a great American feast, when done right. And, hearing the Lions beat the Cowboys from the dining room would always organically bring all five senses together wonderfully.

Be prepared to pay an arm and a leg for not much food, if you go out.



They have turkeys at the Yanjae Costco.

"Be prepared to pay an arm and a leg"?

I live alone and have no wife or kids to take care of. So all my money can be spent on myself. I would consider it nothing to pay up to 99,000 for one hell of a meal. After all, i enjoy food, especially food that is hard to come by in Korea on a daily basis. I went to some places in Itaewon for Thanksgiving in previous years and was not disapointed (by the cost, quantity, or quality of food). I intend to do the same this year, not limited to Itaewon though, anywhere will do. One thing is for sure, i'm not going to do my own cooking. I'm lazy so i'll pay for someone else to do it.

Money always matters. Never overpay just because you can't cook. Don't let people take advantage of you.

But if you want to pay 99,000 that's up to you. There are plenty of options for much less, like this one.

I cooked Thanksgiving dinner here several years back. Had more or less all the trimmings. It came to at least 200,000 won, probably more.

To be fair, it fed 5 people, and I had tons of leftovers. But I busted my ass all day cooking and spent 200K. Spending 50 for a dinner I don't have to cook seems reasonable enough. Maybe even 100, if the food is great.

I've found it a couple of years in Korea at various places. If I find it this year I'll PM you. If I post where I found it a bunch of slobs will put down their Old Milwaukees and post that they make their own with cream cheese and kimchi. Others will post that they prefer curry or some other nonsense.

BTW, Cranberry sauce is available at Foreign Food Mart in Itaewon.

We'll probably go, but haven't decided which day. I can say that we've never been disappointed there.
