The nights are getting longer, and soon, wicked witches zombies and vampires will pour into the streets. Some call it the scariest day of the year, we call it best excuse ever to indulge in witches’ brew and spooky treats! MenuSpring has dug out the best of this year’s Halloween specials!
Fend off the vampires this Halloween – Garlic & Shots:
If you’d rather have your vampire fence boozy, head to Garlic & Shots. With a kitchen full of garlic, some garlic-infused shots, and a pledge that ‘no dishes are served without garlic’, you might leave ‘feeling like you’ve been garlic marinated’, but you’ll for sure be safe from the blood suckers!
Brain food – Cinnamon Soho:
Fearless modern Indian restaurant Cinnamon Soho will take things a step further this Halloween with a special brain burger. Will you be brave enough to try it or will you settle for the easier-to-stomach cocktail special, the Brain Freeze (spiced rum, amaretto, curacao, lime and apple juice)?
Halloween Feast – The Shed:
Indulge your naughty side with the likes of devilesbeef heart, smoked green sludge soup or raw venison and black gnocchi, so this year, forget hiding under the bed and hide inside the Shed instead!
Monstruous burger at STAX:
Bea Vo’s latest opening, STAX Diner, will be celebrating Halloween with a burger special. The Frankenburger is the love child of the double Stax and chicken waffle. That’s the kind of monstres we would gladly invite to all our parties! –until 31 October.
Best pumpkin pie – The Bayou:
It’s all in the title, really, so head down there and get stuck in! (also, may we suggest a bacon Old Fashioned? Yes, you read this right, BACON!)
