Purple Yam in Ditmas Park will be serving but instead of the traditional turkey, Purple Yam will celebrate Thanksgiving with chicken slow cooked in bamboo tubes with young coconut juice (buko) and tamarind leaves as its souring agent.  Back home in the Philippines, this is an old and forgotten cooking technique which we are trying to revive.  For my birthday party in Manila this past October, we flew in Mrs. Remedios Sugon of Bacolod to show us this lost art of packing into bamboo tubes the chickens and its flavoring agents of lemongrass, onions, tomatoes, potatoes and native sour leaves known as libas and cashew leaves…

The Farm on Adderly in Ditmas Park is serving Thanksgiving but they are booked. They are taking names for a waiting list so it might be worth a try to get into this cozy, delicious restaurant.
