Thanksgiving Roast Turkey at Pullman Thamrin (Dinner on 24 – 26 November, Brunch on 26 – 27 November)
This year, give thanks to Sana Sini Restarant for doling out their honey-brined roast turkey and all the trimmings, allowing you not to lift a single finger while still enjoying the feast this holiday. At IDR 485,000 a head, the all-you-can-eat spread is one of city’s more affordable options. Diners will even see the main dish reinterpreted in a Balinese Betutu-spiced edition…we’re definitely intrigued. Hosting Thanksgiving dinner at home? You can also grab a turkey to-go from Makaron for a mean IDR 3,000,000 with sides and condiments and all.
