Thanksgiving Turkey delivery/takeout

kamiosaki Nov 8, 2008 05:16 AM

Any suggestions for places in central Tokyo that make a Thanksgiving turkey, hopefully complete with sides. Don't want to go out this year. Delivery is preferred but mochikaeri will work too.

Have read/heard that Kinokuniya used to do it but have not yet verified that they are doing it this year.

Thanks

      I honestly did not think of the hotel idea, that's clever. I had already seen the article that you mentioned but I think it's a couple years old at least (is Lunchan still there?) I will try to make it to Kinokuniya after work tomorrow. Anyone with any thoughts on Kyle's?

        That article is from 1998.

        Kyle's current website doesn't mention Thanksgiving at all.

          Kyle is a good guy, his shop is in Nakano ku. He makes some very tasty American baked goods, and even caters BBQ ribs(at least he used to). I've never had his tg meal but I like the fact that he runs his own little place and is not part of big corporate thang. If I was going to have Thanksgiving take-out I'd go with him. (I think lunchan is long gone)

                Don't know why I thought that.

                  Unfortunately, I have a futsal match on Thanksgiving so my options are much more limited this year.

                  Kamiosaki, did you have the dinner or the brunch at Roti?

                    This year many places have Thanksgiving dinner on days other than just Thursday - Roti has Sunday brunch, Pink Cow has two seatings on Friday, Cabana is serving Thursday through Sunday, and Roy's is serving a turkey platter Wednesday through Sunday.

                      Thanks Rob, maybe I'll try to make it for a Friday somewhere.

                      We had the dinner at Roti, the earlier seating IIRC. Maybe it's just me but the service there is always a bit over the top, but the food was really good. We had Cabana the year before and I thought it was decent but not as good as Roti.

          I know some hotels used to do take-out TG dinners. Check out any of the hotels doing TG eat-in dinners, and ask if they'll do take-out for you.

            No idea about delivery or even takeout but I was told to try the following places for Turkey Day dinners:

            TY Harbor
            Good Honest Grub
            Roti

            Last year I went to Fujimamas, I will not be going again.

              Thanks. All of the three above are good (we did Roppongi Roti for TG last year), TY Harbor I would call excellent. Sorry to hear about Fujimama's, I have been there several times but not for TG.

                I just got a look at the Roti menu and it looks pretty good this year:
                Louisana shrimp and crab tian; wild-mushroom, roquefort and caramelized onion tart; and roast turkey with sausage chestnut dressing, herbed giblet gravy and winter vegetables.

                Beacon also looks like a contender, with their butternut squash and apple soup with spiced sauteed foie gras and their roast turkey with apple, chestnut and sausage stuffing.

                I went to Fujimamas a few years ago and my only complaint was how crowded it was. But at Y2000 it was definitely the bargain choice in town....
