Looking for an ethnic thanksgiving meal on the westside. Not turkey but something interesting. Any suggestions?

        By "ethnic", did you mean non-American?

            Well, I heard of this one Schezwan restaurant in the San Gabriel Vally that makes a mean turkey with Chinese STICKY RICE stuffing. They sell out every year and they only make it around Thanksgiving. It has to be preordered, I believe. I'm not sure what the name of the restaurant is, but I'll post back when I find out. I know this is still "turkey", but it's an interesting twist on your every day Thanksgiving bird. =)

              Do they serve it in the restaurant?

          African-Americans from Culver City & surrounding areas usually descend on Dinah's for Fried Chicken & Soul Food take on Thanksgiving.

          At Guelagetza you can ask for a special order of Whole Turkey in Mole Sauce.
