What’s better than enjoying a delicious home-cooked meal that wasn’t actually cooked at home? Crft Pit prepares absolutely everything for you, including a whole hickory-smoked spatchcock turkey (a whopping 5.5kg!) with stuffing made from pulled pork, homemade sausage, roasted chestnuts, apples, fresh herbs and garlic. This set is enough to feed six hungry turkey lovers, with a wide selection of sides including farmers’ market salad, bourbon sweet potato mash, smoked potato mash, kimchi casserole and homemade turkey gravy with giblets.

Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without the scent of homemade pie. Crft Pit offers a selection of three different delicious pies: mile high apple pie, pecan and walnut pie and pumpkin and sweet potato pie.

If you’re looking for a more authentic feel. Crft Pit also gives you the option to have the food delivered chilled in order to reheat everything at home. This Thanksgiving set meal costs $1,988 and can be delivered (hot or chilled) for $150–300, depending on whereabouts you live. Alternatively, you can head over to the production kitchen at Unit 2, 3/F, Harbour Industrial Centre, 10 Lee Hing StreetAp Lei Chau, and pick up everything by yourself, but be sure to bring a trolley or some wheels – the portions are big and heavy!

JinjuuJinjuu Tong Dak Whole Korean Turkey

Getting bored of traditional Thanksgiving dinner? Jinjuu takes full advantage of their Korean-American chef Judy Joo to present a modern Korean Thanksgiving feast for all to enjoy. The Thanksgiving set menu ($595 per guest) will be available for dinner from 20–26 November. The set menu puts a spin on the classic American Thanksgiving, starting with a Korean-style pumpkin and rice cake soup, walnut and pear salad and a family-style Jinjuu starters platter. Jinjuu’s main course features a twist on their famous tong dak whole Korean fried chicken, replacing the chicken with a whole turkey! All this is accompanied by sides of potato mash, pickled radish, roasted corn salsa, Korean slaw and the restaurant's signature sauces. Finally, if none of this has tempted you quite enough, the meal ends with a sharing platter of Jinjuu’s homemade desserts. Thanksgiving cocktails ($90) are offered at the bar, all made using the key ingredient of American Wild Turkey Bourbon.

Alternatively, you can opt for the special turkey menu ($988; serves 4), which focuses on the main course of beer-brined whole French turkey cooked in three different ways: doenjang- and honey-glazed roasted turkey crown, Korean fried turkey legs and soy-glazed spicy, crispy turkey wings. The sides include roasted vegetables, Korean Caesar salad, roasted sweetcorn cobs, French fries, turkey jus and the signature sauces.
