Gobble-Gobble-ooshi at Cowfish

— I love Thanksgiving. It is a chance to eat too much turkey and take a nap (and also be thankful for the people in your life who let you take a nap and eat too much turkey). Thanksgiving food is the ultimate comfort food and some local places are turning the traditional holiday meals up a notch with special dishes.

Here's a rundown of a few ways to get your Thanksgiving food-fix in a nontraditional way:

Cowfish in Raleigh is offering the Gobble-Gobble-ooshi roll. Roasted turkey and fried green beans are wrapped in soy paper and sweet potato strings, flash fried and topped with cranberry sauce and fried green beans. Served with gravy, of course. Twenty-percent of the proceeds from sales of Gooble-Gobble-ooshi rolls will go to Interfaith Food Shuttle in Raleigh.

Flaming Amy's in Wilmington offers the Churkeychanga, which includes roasted turkey breast, mashed garlic red skin potatoes and jalapeno cornbread dressing roll up in a flour tortilla and deep fried. It is served with jalapeno cream gravy and cranberry salsa. And if that isn't enough, you can get a personal pumpkin pie for dessert.

Bad Daddy's Burger Bar, which has locations in Raleigh and Morrisville, is offering the Lucky Pilgrim Burger, a turkey burger with sausage-apple stuffing, sliced apples, brie cheese and cranberry spread with gravy served on the side.

And one of our readers, Theodore, shared that D.P. Dough on Avent Ferry Road in Raleigh is offering the Thanksgiving calzone, which is basically an entire holiday meal stuffed into a calzone and served with a side of cranberries. Theodore said it is "amazing."

Goodberry's offers a pumpkin frozen custard that is delicious. Also, if you are thinking about frozen treats Dairy Depot in Wake Forest is serving up pumpkin pie and pumpkin cheesecake train wrecks (soft-serve ice cream with flavors mixed in.)

Any other places offering Thanksgiving-themed dishes in the Triangle?
