Halloween Restaurant in Brussels, Belgium

Halloween Restaurant in Brussels, Belgium

I’ve been cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs since I was a tyke, but these days I’m mad about donuts.

If this was a perfect world, my new neighborhood donut shop would be Top Pot Hand Forged Doughnuts. The Seattle-based shop’s chocolate old-fashioned is the stuff of dreams!

In my imperfect world, I’ll have to settle for Psycho Donuts — a new shop in Campbell, California. Not only is this one-of-a-kind shop doing crazy business, they’re driving some of my humorless neighbors crazy.  (Psycho’s blog has a well crafted response to the local lunatics, and there’s a nice video short of the interior and product at Phantomdonut.blogspot.com.)

The donuts at Psycho are good (although a bit on the sugary side for my taste), but the shop’s concept is right up my alley.

I’m also a big fan of the late-great Halloween Restaurant in Brussels which featured spooky decor on the goth side.  I’m afraid my protesting neighbors would have been just as upset by Halloween’s decorative severed heads and steaming pots of bloody meat.

I’ll keep quiet about my fondness for Halloween when neighbors bring their kiddies ’round to trick-or-treat next October.

And I certainly won’t tell them about a new place I’d love to visit: New Zealand’s Murder Burger: www.murderburger.co.nz/menu.

UPDATE: Psycho Donut Debate Scheduled!

  1. Crummy work filter won’t let me watch the video clip. I’ll have to do so when I get home. Did you you know there was a Halloween-themed restaurant that was in Chicago when I was working back there? I was always bummed out because the outside looked so great, but it was never open. The outside had a clock striking 13 painted over the door….

  2. I oppose Psycho Donuts’ mixing of a mental illness theme with a horror one. I don’t consider myself a humorless person. You paint with a very wide brush.
