What would a Christmas feast be without sumptuous Christmas turkeys roasted to perfection?
While they make your festive celebrations complete, this feasting can also be a tad costly during this festive season. To save you time from hunting for the “ideal” Christmas turkey , we’ve listed 6 places where you can get one for under $120.
Huber’s Butchery offers the widest range of turkeys in Singapore, from those that weigh 4kg to a huge 10kg. Place your order online and have it delivered or just head down to their store at Dempsey Hill to pick it up. As they offer fully deboned turkeys, defrosted and fully frozen ones (takes up to 3 days to defrost), be sure to pick the right type of turkey and plan your cooking schedule accordingly.
Price: $50 to $110
If time is not on your side, skip visiting a physical store and get your turkey delivered to your home instead. The Butcher offers 5 frozen turkey options, ranging from a 5kg bird to one that is 9kg for under $120. Apart from turkeys, they also carry organic turkey, deboned turkey breasts and turducken (yes, turkey, duck, chicken and stuffing rolled into one!).
Price: $70 (approximately 5kg before roasting) to $110 (approximately 9kg before roasting)
Looking to just get a simple roasted turkey? Consider this premium turkey marinated with gluten-free seasoning and brined in gluten-free turkey broth (no additional oil, sugar or MSG added). All that’s left for you to do is place the turkey in the oven and follow the instructions on the packaging. Doesn’t come any easier than this if you are intending to roast your own turkey for the family feasting!
Price: $63 (approximately 4.5kg before roasting)
Just for those who aren’t sure how heavy a turkey to purchase, here’s a simple chart to keep in mind:
|Weight (before roasting)||For how many persons (as a main)|
|8 to 10 lbs, 3.6kg to 4.5kg||8 to 10|
|10 to 12 lbs, 4.5kg to 5.4kg||10 to 12|
|12 to 14 lbs, 5.4kg to 6.3kg||12 to 14|
|14 to 16 lbs, 6.3kg to 7.2kg||14 to 16|
|16 to 18 lbs, 7.2kg to 8.1kg||16 to 18|
|18 to 20 lbs, 8.1kg to 9kg||18 to 20|
|20 to 22 lbs, 9kg to 9.9kg||20 to 22|
