Local hotels are busy coming up with diverse Thanksgiving dining options to celebrate the Turkey Day that falls on Nov. 22.
Everything from a sumptuous meal and a festive buffet to even to-go menus is all set to serve Thanksgiving dinners.
The Westin Chosun Seoul showcases turkey promotions at its dining facilities.
Under the Surf and Turf promotion at its French restaurant, the Ninth Gate, chefs will carve and serve a 7.5-kilogram turkey along with side dishes such as string bean casserole and steamed red cabbage. The dinner will be available from Nov. 19 to 25.
The hotel's Italian osteria, Rubrica, also offers a Premium Roast Turkey promotion, through which guests can enjoy a 7-kilogram whole roast turkey with chestnut stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy. The package will run from Nov. 12 to Dec. 31.
The Grand Hilton Seoul presents two types of Thanksgiving meals on Nov. 22.
Its Buffet Restaurant offers the Thanksgiving Gala Dinner featuring roasted turkey, juicy prime rib and meat feast, flanked by mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, giblet sauce and stuffing.
"Guests will be able to enjoy savory roasted turkey and more than 100 traditional buffet foods, including Korean, Japanese and Western dishes," a Hilton official said.
This year, more hotels plan to offer to-go options.
The Sheraton Seoul D Cube City Hotel has already been presenting a roasted turkey for those who plan to have a Thanksgiving party at home.
The Turkey To Go promotion, enough for more than five people, features a 5-kilogram sage-roasted turkey and a variety of side dishes such as mashed sweet pumpkin, baked macaroni and cheese, pickle radish and sweet apple pie.
It is scheduled to run until the end of the year, also being suitable for those who have a Christmas or year-end party.
Traditional American-style turkey will be available as a takeout at Grand Deli of the Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas until the end of the year.
Its turkeys are marinated in herbal salty water for a minimum of 12 hours before being coated with herbal butter and roasted at a low temperature. It comes with roasted sausages, figs, corn, sweet potatoes, chestnuts and other side dishes along with giblet gravy and cranberry sauce.
The Grand Hilton Seoul also has a turkey to-go promotion, coinciding with its Thanksgiving-themed buffet.
The menu includes a golden brown turkey with mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, giblet sauce and stuffing, which is enough to feed eight people.
