Turkey at Costco?
« on: November 23, 2018, 06:12:48 PM »
Does anyone know if any Costco in Seoul or Ilsan have turkeys? I've decided I would like to cook one up.

Thanks!

    They have turkeys in the freezer sections in both of the Costcos in Daegu (as of yesterday) so I can't imagine why they wouldn't have them in Seoul.

   I don't normally do turkey and all that, as I'm not American and my family never really went for that, but I still somehow ended up hosting my town's big foreigner Turkeyday shindig, so I grabbed one. Heaviest sucker I could find for 58ooo won  (899 won per 100g).

Here's a photo of my doggos watching it defrost!  :laugh:

I was at Yeongdeungpo-gu Station Costco on Saturday.  Didn't see any.

 Our school director decided to be really nice and offer us a traditional turkey dinner. It was smoked turkey. It tasted nothing like Thankgiving turkey.

Thanks! We have a bit of a jungle in our sun-room. Pretty awesome!
This summer we were able to grow a whole bunch of veggies there. Not exactly cost effective, but pretty satisfying to eat home grown produce!

Also, because I'm a bit of a jerk, here's a bunch of photos of turkey day (pre food-demolishment).  :smiley:

if you guys are looking for turkeys at costco, it's better to just call ahead.  i've done that for the last 2 years now and they always check to see if they have them.  it'll save you trip. 

also, i saw that some guy ordered a turkey from someone in korea and the farmer(?) sent him a turkey without the breasts.  -2kgs from his 8kg turkey.  what a dick!   hopefully he will get revengence.  i didn't know they had turkey farms here though.?

Anybody found turkey yet?  Getting a Christmas party together,
but it won't be the same without a bird.

South Korea is like Soviet Russia in the 60s when it comes to
anything even a little bit outside the norm.

Just one in all of Korea I was told.

Meat is quadruple the price you'd find in the West.

..which defeats the whole purpose of eating turkey!

At $1/pound, gluttony is within your reach!

quadruple the price is insane.  i pay about 50,000 won for my frozen turkey at costco every year.  it's worth it for a once a year thing and turkey sandwich leftovers.
