4 Extra Tasty Ways To Get Your Roast Turkey Fix This Thanksgiving Weekend
The quintessential all-American holiday, Thanksgiving is said to be the largest eating event in the United States. Originally a celebration of thanks for a bountiful harvest, it has become an excuse to indulge in roast turkey, with a variety of side dishes like mashed potatoes, stuffing, yams, and cranberry sauce. While we Filipinos don’t have our own Thanksgiving, there’s no reason why we can’t get in on the celebration starting this Thursday, November 22, especially if the turkey is moist and flavorful, and the friends and family are willing. Whether you’d like to order a turkey to take home, or enjoy a turkey feast at a restaurant, here are four ways to give thanks for the bounty and good fortune you enjoy.
TURKEY DAY AT CIRKULO
Milkyway Building, 900 A. Arnaiz Avenue corner Paseo De Roxas, San Lorenzo Village, Makati City, (02) 810-2763 or 810-8735
While it’s known for its Spanish-centric menu, Cirkulo is also proud of its Maple-glazed Roast Turkey with Sausage Stuffing, available during the Thanksgiving season. Opt for a small 6 to 7-kilo turkey good for 10 to 12 persons, or a large 9 to 10-kilo turkey that can feed 16 to 20 persons. The turkey comes with giblet gravy, dried cranberry compote, buttered French beans, and baby carrots.
Please note that you must order and reserve your bird three days before, available for takeout only. If you don’t have time to slave in the kitchen for Thanksgiving or any holiday party, you can order Cirkulo’s party platters to go with your feast.
