A good Bangkok Thanksgiving dinner is hard to find. They’re either too expensive, too skimpy or inauthentic.
Thanksgiving, of course, is not officially observed in Thailand, the expat community and tourists alike embrace the Bangkok Thanksgiving tradition and there’s no better place to do that this year than at Buddy’s Bar & Grill.
Three Buddy’s locations — Soi 8, Soi 20, and Soi 89 — are preparing to host a Bangkok Thanksgiving dinner that promises to deliver a slice of Americana to those far from home. The event, scheduled for Nov. 23, invites guests to indulge in a sumptuous spread of roast turkey and all the trimmings for only 350 baht, starting from 7:30 p.m.

Embracing Thanksgiving Traditions
Thanksgiving, a time-honored tradition celebrated predominantly in the United States, is a day for giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. It is usually marked with a feast among family and friends, featuring the iconic roast turkey as the centerpiece.
For many, the highlight of the dinner will undoubtedly be the roast turkey, a symbol of abundance and generosity. But the “all the trimmings” part of the meal is equally important, representing the variety and richness of the harvest. Buddy’s ensures that every detail of the traditional Thanksgiving meal is honored, from the succulent turkey to the savory sides and sweet pies that round off the feast.
A Bangkok Thanksgiving at Buddy’s is more than just a promotional event; it’s a cultural bridge, an invitation to experience and share in the traditions of another land.
