As Thanksgiving quickly approaches it’s time to start prepping the tummy for that long awaited meal. The last thing you want is to sit down to your Thanksgiving feast and feel overwhelmed or incapable of making it back for seconds. Such a thing would be unacceptable.
That’s why we’ve put together a full guide of San Francisco’s best Thanksgiving inspired dishes. Get your stomach in shape before the big day.
Going Home for Thanksgiving from Ike’s Place (Castro)
What better way to combine classic Thanksgiving flavors than within a sandwich? Ike’s puts the best of Thanksgiving between two pieces of bread. On a loaf of your choice (we suggest their Sourdough), you’ll find the perfect proportions of Cranberry Sauce, Havarti Cheese, Sriracha hot sauce for an extra kick, and of course, sliced turkey.
Happy Thanksgiving from Cheese Plus (Nob Hill)
Similar to Ike’s, this sandwich includes the core essentials: turkey and cranberry sauce. However, what makes this sandwich standout is the selection of cheese; adding some creamy goodness to each bite is double crème brie. This sandwich is grazed with butter, and then topped with fresh arugula to perfectly counter the heavier ingredients.
Fried Thanksgiving Dinner from Greenburger’s (Lower Haight)
Whoever says fried isn’t better is terribly mistaken. Don’t fight the truth. Greenburger’s has taken the traditional Thanksgiving food model, and added a twist of originality. This dish features Panko crusted turkey balls, rolled together with mashed potatoes, and stuffing, served with gravy, seasonal vegetables, and cranberry sauce.
Pumpkin Pie from Mission Pie (Mission)
It’s not Thanksgiving until there’s Pumpkin Pie. Mission Pie fills their crust with a home baked taste we dream about. Serve it with a side of ice cream and a dollop of whipped cream, and you’ve got yourself a dream come true.
Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies from Anthony’s Cookies (Mission)
The cranberry is an indispensable asset to any Thanksgiving meal. Anthony’s Cookies knew to take the cranberry beyond the sauce and create this delectable seasonal treat. Thank you Anthony’s!
