Last year, for the first time in its 17-year-history, Golden Palace Seafood Restaurant offered its customers a Thanksgiving feast.

“We went through a lot of turkeys, I actually lost track,” chuckles general manager Gary Lam. “We had a really, really good response. That’s why we decided to bring it back this year.”

Golden Palace’s Thanksgiving-To-Go is a spectacular meal that begins with 12 pieces of Crispy Gau Gee for pupus, and continues with Gon Lo Mein, loaded with shredded char siu, carrots, green onions, cabbage and bean sprouts. Next on the menu, a seasonal cornucopia of stir-fried vegetables, carefully selected just before Thanksgiving.

Chinese-Style Roast Turkey (20-pound) is marinated and then slow-roasted with Chinese herbs and spices, so the meat stays moist. “The way we marinate it, the turkey pulls in flavors from inside and out,” says Lam.

A dozen Honey-Glazed Dinner Rolls, soft and pillowy and delicious, serve as the perfect accompaniment for this unique bird. “They’re practically our baked char siu manapua, except there’s no char siu filling,” says Lam. “Everyone just loves them.”

No Thanksgiving feast would be complete without pie, and this feast includes one of the best on the island. Customers can choose between custard, pumpkin custard or pumpkin pie from Golden Palace’s next-door neighbor Lee’s Bakery & Kitchen.

Golden Palace now is accepting orders for Thanksgiving-To-Go. Each meal feeds 10-12 people and costs $148. “It’s completely hands off for everyone — there’s no prepping, cooking or cleaning,” notes Lam. “You don’t even have to wait in line for Lee’s Bakery.”

Though the meal is called Thanksgiving-To-Go, families are welcome to enjoy their turkey feasts at the restaurant as “dine-in” customers. The last day to order is Nov. 18.
