Double D’s Delights Thanksgiving buffet—final recap

Over the course of the past three weeks, we’ve spotlighted every aspect of our menu so that you know exactly what to expect. That’s important because most of you have never had our Thanksgiving meal, and we want you to be fully informed. Everything from the hors d’oeuvres which will start at 2 PM through the sweets table featuring our award-winning desserts have been featured. If you missed any of them, search for "Double D's Thanksgiving Buffet Menu", and they'll all appear. We’ve heard from many of you that our posts have made your mouth water. Just imagine what will happen when you finally lay your eyes on our buffet Thursday.

Let’s recap.

Our friends at La Yunta are partnering with us to bring you at least five fresh, never frozen, chemical-free, free-range turkeys. That means plenty of white and dark meat to go around. If you haven’t had a La Yunta turkey, you don’t know what you’re missing. The flavor is so much richer even before we lay our hands on it to give it the Double D’s touch.

For those of you counting your calories and/or carbs this holiday season, you have plenty of options at our buffet. Our hummus and vegetable crudité as an hors d’oeuvre and sides like cauliflower mash, King Smokehouse bacon-seared Brussels sprouts or cabbage, green beans amandine or roasted carrots are waistline friendly. Even the sweet potatoes will be simply but flavorfully roasted to limit the amount of sugar—no molasses or marshmallows mixed in with these sweet potatoes! Even for dessert you’ll have the option of our low-carb carrot cupcakes. These were created with our “keto” and diabetic friends in mind, but everyone loves them.

Oh, did we mention that it’s a buffet? Go back as frequently as you care to.

Finally, by joining Double D’s at Minka for Thanksgiving, you’ll be supporting one of the very few legally registered and monitored expat-run charities in Cuenca. 25% of the profit will be donated to Hogar de Esperanza. Enjoy an excellent holiday meal while helping make the lives of the less fortunate a little bit better.

Tickets for our Thanksgiving buffet are available through noon, Monday, November 19, at Minka (Gran Colombia 9-69 between Padre Aguirre and Benigno Malo), Esperanza Thrift Shop (Tarqui 10-15 and Gran Colombia), or via PayPal with a 10% service fee. $25 per adult and $12.50 per child 12 and younger.

We look forward to seeing many of you on Thursday. Regardless, we wish everyone a happy and fulfilling Thanksgiving 2018.

Eat, drink, be grateful.

Thursday, November 22, 2 PM – 6 PM, Minka, Gran Colombia 9-69 between Padre Aguirre and Benigno Malo
