Although Christmas is just around the corner, it's not only time you can savour a turkey. And if you are a foodie, we're sure you can’t wait to indulge. Piling your plate high with stuffing, mashed potato, roasted vegetables and of course, the turkey. No Christmas feast is complete without a brilliantly bronzed turkey gracing the table, along with its savoury aroma wafting through the house (well, unless you're vegan). So, if you haven’t had time to start thinking about where you'll be buying your turkey from, fret not. Whether you are looking for a traditional turkey, an organic one or maybe something slightly unique—but of course, still delicious—we’ve got you covered, with Esquire Singapore's guide on where to buy the best turkey in Singapore.
If you are concerned about animal welfare—which we all definitely should be—organic is the best way forward. Ryan’s Grocery believes in ethical sourcing and humane treatment of animals. Meaning all meat is sourced from a certified farm that provides either organic or free-range meat options. So why not try their Organic Diestel Turkey this festive season? This turkey has been grown in the clean Sierra Nevada Foothills with individual care and is completely free of growth stimulants and hormones.
