Thanksgiving to go dinners

Neta Oct 14, 2009 01:15 PM

I need to know what is the best bet for a pre-cooked thanksgiving dinner to go. I've seen many ads but there is no way to tell the quality and taste of the food by price. I need some recommendations? Price is not a problem. We live in the SGV. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Neta! For the past couple of years, we've been getting a prepared turkey dinner from Fu Shing in Pasadena. While it's not "the best," it always gets devoured. The dinner comes with sticky rice, vegetables, and lots of gravy. Pour one container of gravy over the bird and reheat for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

      FYI - just got an email that Grace is doing T'giving dinners to go. Not in the SG valley, but mid city area. Excellent food, last time I was there.

        Don't know if it's too far, but Auntie Em's Kitchen.

          I had Von's. I wasn't impressed--also surprised the turkey still needed to complete its cooking time. (I mention this, in case you are not near a functioning kitchen.)

          Friends of ours have picked up Gelsons and enjoyed it. I've heard very good things about Mimi's Cafe, over in Eagle Rock--but their pick up times were fairly rigid, especially when compared to those of a grocery store.

            Ooops, well this might not help, too far....

            Josie's in Santa Monica - great food and they will do your feast TO GO, ahead of time, all you do is Pick up and Heat up. Pico & 24th.
