Best Thanksgiving Day Dinners in Seoul
Updated: Nov 15, 2022
It is that time of year when 2023 is just around the corner, and preparations begin for the big end-of-year holidays, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. While cooking can be a great way to bond with family and friends, many people might not have the time nor the tools to be able to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal. So, many restaurants in South Korea have made it a tradition to sell pre-cooked Thanksgiving meal sets that you can order in advance, and pick up on the day of the event, avoiding the hassle of cooking and cleaning your utensils. However, those restaurants typically have limits on the orders they get and they also do not deliver. Wonderful has researched a list of popular restaurants that have the best Thanksgiving dinner sets this year for your convenience. We can help book and deliver them too if needed.
If you would prefer to cook your own Turkey, we can also help secure an organic, cage-free turkey fresh from a farm in Korea, delivered in time for your event.

The cost per KG is around 14,000 KRW, and the available weights this year are 5 KG ~ 7 KG.
