Note: Availability may vary.
Frankie & Jo's
The plant-based ice creamery's Frankincone is a striking black version of their usual gluten-free maple vanilla waffle cone made with the addition of activated charcoal and cocoa powder, available through Halloween. For extra goth effect, try a scoop of vanilla drizzled with "Moon Goo" (dry burned salted caramel with activated charcoal).
In honor of Día De Los Muertos, the local burger joint will celebrate with a Day of the Dead Chicken Sandwich, made with serrano crema, fresh cilantro, pickled red onions, queso panela, and fried chicken smothered in molé, available until next Monday, November 5.
Macrina covers all the bases with their spooky ghost cupcakes, ganache spiderweb cupcakes, decorated cookies, and more. Plus, for your Día De Los Muertos festivities, they'll be baking a traditional pan de muerto through November 4th.
Until Halloween, the award-winning Belltown tiki bar has been transformed into Nightmare on Wall Street, with horror-themed cocktails (like the pumpkin-vesseled "Slasher," which contains "candy corn orgeat") inspired by movies like Jaws, Hereditary, Drag Me to Hell, and Night of the Living Dead and horror movie soundtracks to set the mood. On Tuesday, October 30, they'll also host an American Psycho-inspired pop-up dinner that will recreate the fictional restaurant Dorsia.
R&M Dessert Bar
Frighten your friends and family with a lifelike Halloween skull cake from the Capitol Hill dessert destination, available in red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and chocolate with chocolate buttercream.
Salt and Straw
For October, the Portland-based artisan ice cream shop is going all out with a limited series of "spooktacular"-themed flavors, including the Great Candycopia, a salted butterscotch ice cream stuffed with homemade Snickers, Twix chunks, Heath bars, and peanut butter cups; Mummy's Spiced Pumpkin Potion, a twist on the pumpkin spice latte with warming spices and dried pumpkin Psychocandy tea from August Uncommon Tea steeped in coconut cream with candied pumpkin bits; Creepy Crawly Critters, a light green ice cream with real dark chocolate-covered crickets and coconut toffee-brittle mealworms; Dracula Blood Pudding, a particularly chilling concoction with a blood pudding made from pig's blood from Portland butcher Nicky USA with warming spices and cream; and Essence of Ghost, a ghostly-gray streaked white sherbert that tastes "bitter, sweet, and slightly smoky."
The New York-style bagel shop has two delightfully dramatic-looking Halloween specials available on their special limited-run black bagels, available through Halloween: the "Slimmer Sammy," with avocado, cucumber, caper and herb dressing, and scallion schmear, and the "Creature from the Black Lagoon," with smoked whitefish, plain schmear, pickled onion, and tomato.
