Thanksgiving dinners in Singapore 2020: Dine at Luke’s Oyster Bar & Chop House, Meatsmith and more

thanksgiving dinners

Take a break this Thanksgiving and let the following restaurants do the cooking for you

As far as holidays go, Thanksgiving (and Christmas) is one of our favourites. It’s another excuse for us to feast, make merry and shower our livers with more alcohol than we should, and with only the people we love. But unfortunately, there’s turkey, the very worst part of Thanksgiving. It’s a tough bird, and when you’ve got a tough crowd, cooking the perfect turkey at home is nevertheless a fool’s errand. But that’s not to say that it can’t be done. You’ve just got to leave it to the experts, the people whom we otherwise know as chefs.

Brasserie Les Saveurs

What about: This is one refined establishment, with its opulent crystal chandeliers and decadent furnishings to prove it. Known mostly for classic French cuisine, like EscargotsFrench Onion Soup and Steak Frites, the Thanksgiving menu leans more towards American, for obvious reasons. Think Oven-Roasted Turkey with chestnut stuffing, Pumpkin Velouté with crab cake and black truffle, and Crème Brûlée Cake. Happening on 26 November from 6pm to 10.30pm; S$198 with free flow wine and S$248 with all the Champagne and wine you can drink. Book here.

Robb tip: If you don’t want to indulge on a Thursday, there’s always the St. Regis Champagne Brunch on Sundays from 12pm to 2.30pm. Feast on seafood, roasts and more, alongside free flow Champagne (Barons de Rothschild Blanc de Blancs Vintage 2008) for S$548.

Luke’s Oyster Bar & Chop House

What about: Located on quaint Gemmill Lane, the restaurant prides itself on being the place for melt-in-your-mouth steaks and slippery oysters, sourced directly from the Eastern Seaboard of America. While the heroes on the menu are mainly the Prime Ribeye, Bone-In Tenderloin and ever-changing selection of oysters, you can’t leave without the Lobster Pot Pie or Warm Chocolate Chip Cookie Stout Milkshake. If you’re thinking of giving it a shot, there’s a special Thanksgiving menu available only on 26 November 2019. At S$105 each, feast on Slow-Roasted Tom TurkeyNative American Wild Rice and Fried Pumpkin Hand Pie, made of persimmon, gingersnap crumble, yoghurt gelato and butterscotch.

Robb tip: Prefer to celebrate Thanksgiving at home? No worries. Luke’s Mobile Oyster Bar will feed you with all the oysters and lobsters you can eat from the comfort of your own home.

What about: Each time we think of Meatsmith, we think of the cheeseburger – an old-fashioned double beef patty burger with perfectly melted cheese and all the drippings. But for the sake of Thanksgiving, we’ll have turkey instead. The 26th of November will see a special sharing-style menu of Smoked Turkey (brined for two days and hickory-smoked for four), Sweet Potato Casserole and Roasted Brussels Sprouts, at S$108 a head. Book here.

Robb tip: There will be two seatings, one from 5.30pm to 8.00pm and another from 8.30pm onwards. Pick your battles wisely.

Wolfgang’s steakhouse
Wolfgang’s Steakhouse has turkey available for dine-in or delivery

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse

What about: There are plenty good restaurants in the Robertson Quay neighbourhood. Ishi and Publico are a couple of favourites, and so is Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, a space kitted out for anyone who’s game for dry-aged steak and the works. The space is large but intimate, which works great if what you want is quiet time with extended family (and friends). Again, there will be turkey on the Thanksgiving menu (S$168) – Boneless Turkey Breast  – as well as USDA Prime Petite Filet MignonCaesar Salad, Butternut Squash Soup  and Appel Strudel. Available on 26 November.

Robb tip: Whole (S$128) and half turkeys (S$78) are also available for pre-orders online, and can be collected from 26 to 29 November. The turkeys will be pre-cooked and served with stuffing, roasted vegetables, mashed sweet potato and cranberry sauce.

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar

What about: Devouring fried chicken may not be a waistline-friendly endeavour, but it sure is life. And some of the juiciest deep-fried chicken legs and thighs can found at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar. The brand, founded by 50 Eggs Inc. in California, stocks its kitchen with only farm-fresh ingredients and brines its birds for 27 hours – no more, no less. Judging by the fried chicken here, we’ll likely have no bones to pick with their Oven-Roasted Turkey, made with a butternut stuffing and served with creamed corn on the side. Order it as part of a three-course meal (S$58), which will start with a Beetroot, Goat Cheese and Pecan salad and end with Pumpkin Pie. And add on S$30 for wine pairing or S$60 for a bottle of Bisol Belstar Prosecco. Happening only on 26 November.

Robb tip: If you think you’ll still be hungry, the Chicken ‘n’ Watermelon ‘n’ Waffles should do the trick.
