Christmas dinner delivery
« on: December 21, 2020, 12:54:04 pm »
Does anyone know which companies/restaurants are delivering pre-cooked Christmas dinners this year?

I tried ordering from The Gypsy Kitchen in Busan but they won't deliver to my area.

I also know Sprout does a vegan dinner delivery.

Any others you can tell me about? Time is of the essence!

TIA

Years ago, I heard in Japan people go to KFC on Christmas Day since they didn't have turkey dinners traditionally.  So, I made it my own tradition in recent years.  We don't have turkey dinner places out here in the provinces.  So, it is my go to thing.  If you can't find a turkey dinner place, may I suggest imitating the Japanese (as a last resort)?

The KFC thing was due to a marketing thing in Japan, back in the 1970s or 80s.
Japan never had any Christmas traditions then, and the owner or something of the first KFC in Japan thought of the party barrel to replace a turkey dinner.
I think more recently it picked up, based on the colonel Sanders icon/mascot of himself. And they thought he looked Christmas-y.

You can try and order the ingredients off of Coupang/11st/Gmarket. You could also try one of the various foreign food outlets in Korea.

I threw together a joke of Christmas dinner once with some ham ordered off of gmarket that had a 25% markup off its price at Costco that I cooked in my toaster oven. Instant stuffing from the foreign food mart+gravy packets and some other shit. I think Kraft macaroni & powdered plastic may have made an appearance.

Interesting.  I did not know that.  I wondered how that came about.  I just thought they wanted a turkey replacement or something.  (Not having them.)  I guess I have made it my tradition.  If I lived in Seoul during a non covid year, I would just go to one of the foreign pubs offering a turkey dinner.
