28 Oct Eat Your Heart Out 7 On-Theme Halloween Treats To Dig Into Here are the venues serving food that’s frightfully fun.
This year, Halloween might not be the raucous affair it usually is, but that doesn’t mean the holiday is nixed — condensing the spooks down to the size of a plate keeps the merriment going. Here are the spots to head to this weekend so you can have your scares and eat them too.

Topped with apple jam, walnut and Pedro Ximenez, TXA’s classic Roquefort Cream
pintxo receives a seasonal update with olives and transforms into the Bella Ciao Spider Roquefort Cream — recommended for anyone but the arachnophobic. 10 Telok Blangah Green; txapintxobar.sg

Sticking to an orange colour scheme, the al fresco bar Yin concocts the Red Pepper Padre, a spicy cocktail made with Padre Blanco tequila, orange liquor, honeycomb syrup and fresh lime juice, and garnished with slivers of red bell pepper and rimmed with ground black pepper.

This year, the Alkaff Mansion’s establishments take inspiration from the Spanish Netflix series
Money Heist, complete with wait staff wearing Dalí masks and red jumpsuits, and the menu is conceptualised to match. A blend of Shiraz, navy rum, blackberry liqueur and lychee juice, Palermo’s Bloody Eyeball Cocktail is a delicious though gory tribute to the Money Heist character Palermo, who is temporarily blinded in one eye by glass shrapnel while robbing the Bank of Spain. 10 Telok Blangah Green; txapintxobar.sg

Another nod to
Money Heist, Lisbon’s Money Bag Cupcake — chocolate fudge cake with Earl Grey frosting and a gooey core of raspberry jam — is named after the Spanish police inspector who switches allegiance and robs the Mint of Spain. 10 Telok Blangah Green; wildseedcafe.sg

The restaurant Mimi makes modern Chinese tapas out of an autumntime staple — deep-fried pumpkin fritters are given a ghoulish moniker, The Witch Fingers.

The Summerhouse turns its garden domes into a grisly Little Red Riding Hood–themed adventure, and the Wildseed Cafe, located on the premises, joins in, combining kid-favourite flavours — red velvet with cream cheese frosting and raspberry sauce — into one spooky Hunter’s Cupcake.
