The turkey: a noble bird in body, from its mighty claws to its stately snood. It's also delicious. That's rounded up the best places in Shenzhen to buy birds for the holidays. This Thanksgiving, gather family and friends to feast on a turkey's roasted corpse. Click on vendors' names to view their listing and contact info.


Nogogo is selling cooked, seasoned and breadcrumb-stuffed Norbest young turkey imported from the US. Nogogo can deliver the cooked turkey with 24 hours notice, or you can go to their Nanshan District warehouse to pick it up, though the usual 10 percent off for in-person pick ups won't apply. Nogogo sells frozen Chilean turkey, if you prefer to cook it yourself. You can also order through nogogo.cn.
