An American Thanksgiving in Seoul

There’s nothing that brings a smile to my face faster than a Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings. I’m talking turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, biscuits and probably a pumpkin pie for good measure. And now, thanks to an ever-growing expat population, I never have to go a year without Thanksgiving in Seoul.

And, being the pay-it-forward kind of people we are, here’s a list of Thanksgiving dinners available in Seoul for November 2023.

Hearth Seoul

Hearth will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner from the 23rd to the 26th at 5:30 PM and at 8:00 PM. The course menu includes ciabatta bread, feta cheese salad, turkey dinner with homemade gravy, apple walnut stuffing, mashed potatoes, lasagna side, cheesecake, pecan pie and a complimentary drink. It’s priced at 85,000 KRW per person.
