Treating your precious pooch has new meaning as a dog-only restaurant in San Francisco’s Mission District has just opened.
Dogue offers a range of fancy treats and special menus consisting of French cuisine. All the options on the menu, like the dogguccinos and the pastries are tailored to canine requirements by actual gourmet chefs.
But, as cute and cuddly as these items are, their prices are anything but. The dogguccinos and pastries start at R85 each and the raw food items that are available to take home with you are also pricey.
Dogue’s special tasting menu is on offer for R1,300 and is only available on Sundays. It includes three courses of seasonal, rotating dishes. These include organic beef chuck steak served with fermented carrots and beets.
Other items on the menu include chicken and chaga mushroom soup, chicken skin waffles and grass-fed steak tartare.
CNBC reports that the restaurant’s in-house “pawtisserie” serves up healthy and colourful snacks made from organic, locally-sourced “real human-grade ingredients,” according to the restaurant’s website. That could mean a cake made with ingredients like pastured chicken, liver, wild sardines and organic vegetables.
Dog-only restaurants are becoming a thing all over the world. According to locals, there are more dogs than children in San Francisco.
