Halloween Guanabana Restaurant

Halloween Guanabana Restaurant on the 31st of October is nearly upon us and what better than playing a little trick on your friends and pretending you have nothing planned for this weekend! or you might have something planned this weekend come on and celebrate with us Well it is Halloween, so everyone deserve a little trick and there will be nothing better that giving them a real treat by surprising them with a delicious meal at Camden’s most prestigious Latin American Restaurant!

Our team love Halloween and well lets be honest what’s not to like really? Dressing up in spooky costumes and decorating our own part of Camden with pumpkins and playing a few tricks is all parts of Halloween Guanabana Restaurant rituals. Whilst we may not be trick or treating this year, as we will hopefully too busy feeding you guys, we still like to keep up with the theme!

Since 2007 we have been keeping with traditions and delivering great food to the people of London, who in turn keep returning to our restaurant to try our chefs new dishes. We’ve been racking our brains though for this years Halloween spectacular and wondered how we can top of last years rather adventurous food creations! In case you never ventured round Camden last year (maybe you were too afraid) our kitchen team thought it would be a hell-raising idea to experiment with our recipes. Halloween Guanabana Restaurant have a team of eccentric-minded Heston Blumenthal's type chefs concocted a variety of different experiments to leave our diners taste buds tingling with excitement! Can you remember the spooky twist to our freshly made brioche buns? Well if you weren’t a witness to this monstrous creation then you missed out on the black brioche buns that accompanied our mouthwatering gourmet burgers!

Halloween Guanabana Restaurant

Why are we telling you this? Well the Guanabana Bun is a signature to our restaurant and we passionately make them every morning without fail. But when someone craftily alters our recipes it brings a new level of expectations from our customers! How you may ask, when they look so vulgar? Quite simply they were delicious and the reason being is that they are made to a secret special recipe using premium grade, specialist flour. Our brioche burger buns go through a different baking process to ordinary burger buns, but they are still hand kneaded by our pastry chef and baked daily. Because of this, they are sweeter, lighter and more soft than ordinary burger buns, which we think gives our homemade burgers the edge over any competition.

Mad scientists will again take over our kitchen this Halloween

Every Halloween Guanabana Restaurant seem to get possessed into creating something new and I’m sure this year will be no different. The only problem for you will be in determining whether this is going to be a trick or treat for your taste buds?

So whether you pop in for a spot of brunch or maybe an evening meal we will sure to delight you with some great costumes whilst the food firing out from the kitchen will provide the spices and tastes of our Latin American Cuisine.
