The food scene in Los Angeles right now is so good it’s scary. So there’s no shortage of places to get your grub on Halloween style this year, and it’s not all sweets. Take your ghouls and ghosts out for vegan hot dogs from Frankenstand and top it off with candy corn flavored ice cream at Salt and Straw. No matter what your frightfully picky family is craving, there’s something for everyone. Trick and treats guaranteed.

Sugar Skulls and Dead Bread

Serve up a side of culture with your Halloween desert by grabbing a loaf of Pan de Muerto from any of bakery stalls on Olvera Street. This sweet bread is made once a year in anticipation of Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Sugar skulls are also a sweet treat. Eat them if you can't resist, but they also make some pretty spooky decorations, no bones about it.
