Thanks­giv­ing Menus in Sin­ga­pore

Exquisite Taste - - Grapevine -

Along with Christ­mas, Thanks­giv­ing Day is the USA's most beloved an­nual hol­i­day and takes place on the fourth Thurs­day of Novem­ber.

The ori­gins of Thanks­giv­ing date back to 1621 when a group of English pil­grims in Mass­a­chu­setts shared a feast with a tribe of Na­tive Amer­i­cans to cel­e­brate the plen­ti­ful har­vest. Over time this spread from state to state be­fore Pres­i­dent Abra­ham Lin­coln fi­nally de­clared it a na­tional hol­i­day across the whole coun­try in 1863.

Over the last 150 years, the global in­flu­ence of Amer­i­can cul­ture has been enor­mous and to­day Thanks­giv­ing din­ners and menus can be found through­out the re­gion with some of the best in Sin­ga­pore where the large Amer­i­can ex­pa­tri­ate com­mu­nity reaches out just as the pil­grims did in 1621.

These in­clude lav­ish an­nual events like The St. Regis Thanks­giv­ing Din­ner at Brasserie Les Saveurs, special menus at Amer­i­can grills and restau­rants like LAVO and Bedrock Bar & Grill, Luke's Oys­ter Bar and Chop­house, and iconic smoke­house Meat Smith, which will be serving up a com­plete Thanks­giv­ing feast with sweet potato casse­role, corn bread and the turkey.

There are fab­u­lous buf­fets too like the Mar­riott Café's Thanks­giv­ing Cel­e­bra­tion and Brew­erkz Thanks­giv­ing Buf­fet, where Sin­ga­pore's long­est-run­ning mi­cro­brew­ery of­fers roast turkey and bone-in-gam­mon ham served with a side of sweet po­ta­toes with marsh­mal­lows, fin­ished with tra­di­tional pump­kin pie.

Thanks­giv­ing Day is 22nd Novem­ber in 2018 so go ahead and en­joy the feast. Visit Sin­ga­pore (vis­itsin­ga­pore.com)
