Thanksgiving is not officially celebrated in KL but it’s an important holiday in the United States of America, Grenada, Saint Lucia, and Liberia.
The significance behind the day is to give thanks and appreciate life’s blessings. This tradition initially began by giving thanks for the blessings of the harvests.
The occasion is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States . While it’s not observed here in Malaysia, our exposure to American television means that many of us are already well-versed with the tradition and the famous Thanksgiving feast that accompanies it.
There are also expats living here, or those who have studied or worked in the US or Canada who simply miss the tradition and indulgence of roast turkey and all the trimmings. If you’re one of these people or simply want to try a Thanksgiving dinner this year, here are three restaurants in KL that are celebrating the occasion.
Here’s where to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner this year in KL:
Curate, Four Seasons Kuala Lumpur
On November 24 2022, Curate at Four Seasons Kuala Lumpur is offering Smoked Black Garlic Roasted Turkey and Salt-Crusted Prime Rib of Beef with all the trimmings, alongside seasonal Pecan Waffles. The Thanksgiving dinner was inspired by Executive Chef Junious Dickerson and his childhood memories back home in the United States. The innovative menu is based around beloved traditional Thanksgiving ingredients such as sage, chestnuts, pecans, pumpkins, and cranberries.
