Sam Woo Turkey
I saw a poster at Sam Woo Sepulveda accepting pre ordered Thanksgiving Turkey for about $40. Has anyone ever tried it from previous years (other branches included)? Or, any suggestions on "chinese style" turkey from other restaurants in SGV or chinatown will be appreciated.
CBS Seafood in Chinatown is selling Thanksgiving turkeys, don't think it comes with any sides. Not sure of the price, but I'm sure it's competitive.

I'm also looking at getting a turkey from Sam Woo or some of the other Chinese BBQ places in Chinatown or the SGV. From looking at reports online, it seems some of them are cooked like Chinese Roast Duck. However, it appears that there is some high risk of the white meat coming out too dry. Some reports have the BBQ restaurant providing the turkey and others have BBQ restaurant cooking for a fee the turkey you provide.
Does anyone have good personal experience with this and with specific location recommendations? If it's too dry and I have a house full of people, it will be too late to recover....
Many years ago I had maybe the best turkey I've ever had, from a Chinese restaurant in Danbury, CT (don't remember the name -- long since gone, I have to assume) that prepared it "Peking Duck style".
If anything, ipsedixit's description of Sam Woo-style turkey sounds even better.
always been curious, likewise. the description, as ipsedixit posted, definitely looks very tantalizing. my only concern has been the ride home. even the delectable duck sam woo sells just doesn't taste as great...
