As people all across the United States sit down to their Thanksgiving meals of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, vegetables and pumpkin pie, be thankful you didn’t have to pay Korean prices for the perfectly baked, large-breasted turkey sitting on your dinner table.
According to Brian Dye of Kiss My Kimchi and Dan Gray of Seoul Eats, ex-pats in Korea pay $67 at Costco for a 17 lb turkey. In the States, you can get turkeys that size on sale for about $10 and full price for about $25.
At least ex-pats in Seoul don’t have to go to the “black market” anymore for their annual turkey fix. Hope all of you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving, where ever you are.
