Trick or treat! Enjoy Halloween-themed delicacies

As Halloween approaches, many restaurants in Hong Kong are decorated with jack-o’-lanterns and other Halloween-themed decorations for a festive atmosphere

In the West, children would dress up and knock door-to-door for candies with their jack-o'-lanterns. In Hong Kong, trick-or-treating has evolved into a holiday-themed gastronomic experience with specially designed dishes and drinks that you simply can’t miss. 

Make your own Halloween special desserts

Want to whip up your own Halloween treats? There’s no shortage of bakeries that offer special workshops for those who enjoy baking in Hong Kong. Local bakery Home Baking Day, for example, offers a range of themed desserts from cakes to brownies to cookies. Visit their shops with your friends to prepare handmade desserts ahead of your Halloween parties. Their cute little bat-shaped Oreo chewy breads come highly recommended — they’re as delicious as they look!
