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 eight 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: $52 (approximately 4kg before roasting) to $112 (approximately 10kg before roasting)
If time is not on your side, skip visiting a physical store and get your turkey delivered to your home instead. The Butcher offers 2 frozen turkey options, that range from a 4.5kg to 5.4kg bird and one that weighs 5.4kg to 6.3kg.
Apart from whole turkeys, they also carry deboned turkey breasts, turkey mince and turkey schnitzel.
Price: $70 (approximately 4.5kg to 5.4kg before roasting) and $80 (approximately 5.4kg to 6.3kg before roasting)
Looking to just get a simple roasted turkey? Consider this premium turkey by Norbest that has been 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!
However, if you have a turkey seasoning plan in place, Ryan’s Grocery also offers 2 types of unseasoned Organic Diestel turkeys that weigh 3.8kg and 4.5kg before roasting. These turkeys are raised on a wholesome low-fat vegetarian diet of quality grains and soybeans milled, free of hormones and gluten-free.
Going for a little something out of the ordinary? Give Ryan’s Grocery’s boneless Turducken a try! As its name suggest, this is a festive mammoth that consists of a chicken in a duck, that is in a turkey.
- Norbest, seasoned: $69.90 each (approximately 3.6kg to 4.5kg before roasting)
- Organic Diestel, unseasoned: $135 (approximately 3.8kg before roasting) and $155 (approximately 4.5kg before roasting)
- Turducken: $208 (approximately 5kg to 6kg before roasting)
If there is a brand of turkey that even non-cooks know of, then it has to be Butterball. Raised without hormones, gluten-free and flown in from America just for the festive season, QB Food offers Butterball frozen turkey that weigh between 5.4kg and 6.3kg.
While you’re here, why not go grocery shopping for the week and have it delivered to you for free (if you hit their minimum order of $95)? They carry a wide range of groceries like chilled beef, cheese, sausages, food cupboard essentials and more.
Price: $10.80 per kg, approximately $64.80 each (each turkey ranges from 5.4kg to 6.3kg before roasting)
At Meat Co you get to choose how you like to receive your raw turkey — frozen, thawed, brined and/or stuffed. With prices starting from $58 for a 4.5kg standard frozen turkey, this is perhaps one of the most affordable frozen turkey options on this list.
Price: From $60 for a standard frozen turkey (approximately 4.5kg before roasting) to $72 for a defrosted, brined and stuffed turkey (approximately 5.5kg before roasting)
