As you prepare for costumed children to ask your preference in offering them a trick OR a treat this weekend, Myrtle Beach-area restaurants say why choose? These five local favorites serve up playful cuisine that combine delicious treats with plenty of fun tricks.

The Chemist

This downtown restaurant is best known for its quirky cuisine, including a Mango Coconut Panna Cotta that looks like breakfast but tastes oh so sweet. With a list of dishes and drinks that incorporate liquid nitrogen, among many others, simply put, you have to try The Chemist.

The Porch

A dish that is regionalized to the Low Country, the chicken bog, is served in an unexpected egg roll at this tiny local establishment. We recommend finding a spot on the charming patio and indulging.

Socastee Station

We basically can’t get enough of chicken bog, so when we found out Socastee Station deep fried it as a Bog Ball, we ran to get our fill. We left happy.

Johnny D’s

You won’t have to look hard for a crab cake in Myrtle Beach, but Johnny D’s does something a little playful with the classic dish. Look for it incorporated into a breakfast staple as crab cakes benedict.

Loco Gecko

Ask your serve at Loco Gecko to let you in on the secret behind the Banana Hammock. Are you brave enough to give it a try?
