Swedish Restaurant Introduces Doggie Menu
For those of us who can’t bear the thought of having our dogs staring and drooling as we chow down on a delicious steak, this restaurant has got you (and Rover) covered.
The Swedish restaurant Avenyfamiljen is located in the western city of Gothenburg and is catering their menu to attract a new kind of clientele… “ones who can’t leave their dogs for more than an hour at home,” said restaurant owner Tobias Hamberg.
Hamberg’s restaurant has welcomed dogs into their restaurant for years, but the only thing available was a water bowls. Now, they provide a special dog menu so you and your canine can dine in style.
Canines can order fresh cod or organic beef, and coming soon, a non-alcoholic “dog beer” (a concoction made of beef stock) to wash it all down with.
A few other eateries have offered up pet treats, hoping to attract customers who cannot think of leaving their furry children at home for more than a few minutes at a time.
“Food service is a very competitive market – we always need to find a new ways to make competitive offers for our customers. At the moment we just allow dogs. But who knows – in the future we might build restaurants just for animals,” Hamberg said.
The doggy meals will set owners back about 50 kroner, the equivalent of $6 – not a bad price to pay to know your dog is happily eating by your side!
