CALI Kitchen

Cali Kitchen, known for its Californian-Mexican dishes and sauces made from scratch, is bringing back one of the best Thanksgiving dinners in town. There's going to be the already-famous sous vide turkey, ham and cranberry relish, along with lots of homemade surprises, all prepared in a buffet style. With the commitment to high quality ingredients which makes CALI Kitchen stand out, we know it's going to be a good one. But as there's going to be only one seating, on November 25th at 7pm, you might want to make a reservation as soon as possible (if you wish to be included in one cozy dinner party for 30, that is). The cost is 35,000 won and it includes one housemade drink or cocktail. For reservations, refer to their event page: ttps://
