Sam's Cafe, located at the intersection of Camp Foster's Legion Gate and Highway 330, is an excellent restaurant for fine dining with family and friends. Recently, the restaurant took steps to give their visitors a more fun and festive dining experience during the Halloween season. Their Happy Halloween Special began on Oct. 1 and ends at midnight on Halloween night and includes a roast prime rib of beef with horseradish and aujus natural sauce, a bowl of Ghost Buster pumpkin soup, a Jack O' Lantern spooky salad, mashed potatoes with gravy, seasonal vegetables, wheat bread or rice, a Trick or Treat dessert, and a cup of iced tea or hot coffee. The spooky salad is shaped as a ghost with purple cabbage hair, black olive eyes, a green olive nose, and a tomato grin.

Thereís nothing to fear when dining at Sam's; they use only USDA Choice Beef.
The Happy Halloween Special's steak comes in three sizes: 230 g for •1,950, 340 g for •2,480, and a giant 450 g steak for •2,980. I had the 230 gram steak and was so stuffed I could barely walk out of the restaurant when I finished my meal. The steak was delicious, and the natural aujus sauce is a nice addition.

For children, Sam's Cafe is offering a Kidsí special meal that includes golden fried shrimp, hamburger steak, Halloween Mushroom potato (sausage base, potato head), a bowl of Ghost Buster pumpkin soup, fresh garden salad, saffron rice, Trick or Treat dessert, and a glass of juice or a soft drink. This hearty meal costs only •650 and is available for kids under 8 years of age.

Also, the restaurant has a Spooky Cocktail Menu with two new festive drinks. The Devil's Kiss is a drink served with dry ice and in a special, spooky mug. This drink is a mysterious blend of rum, brandy, and tropical juices guaranteed to "loosen tongues and lubricate eyeballs." This kiss will cost you •700. A non-alcoholic version of the drink called the Little Devil is also being offered for only •500.

Sam's Cafe has certainly made a run with this whole Halloween thing! Their new menu is delightfully charming and the staff, all wearing witch hats, and decorations will ensure that you have a really spooktacular time while getting stuffed off a delicious Halloween meal. Sam's is open daily from 5 p.m. to midnight, and the last call is at 11 p.m. Reservations are not required. Also, Sam's Cafe is offering a special to readers of Japan Update.
