Did you know that Sydney has its very own dog restaurant? This isn’t just a restaurant that allows dogs – this is a restaurant catering for dogs only (owners are not even served here!)
Called Chew Chew, the restaurant is located at Woolstonecraft Station and is open from Wednesday to Sunday. Meals are prepared on site using organic meats and are formulated using a basic recipe of 50% meat, 25% grain and 25% vegetables. Owners can ask for an adjusted recipe that meets their dog’s dietary restrictions.
At Chew Chew, dogs can indulge in a number of dishes including chicken risotto, salmon pasta and beef steak. A three-course set menu consists of an soup entree, followed by salad with beef, chicken or fish, and a cup cake or doggie cappuccino for dessert.
Chew Chew also sells takeaway meals for dogs in two sizes: 200 g and 400 g.
Not surprisingly, the opening of the restaurant in 2010 captured a fair bit of media attention.
Sydney dog owners: take your dog for a special day out at Chew Chew.
