London seems to be on the brink of an animal revolution these days with the cat cinema and now a pop-up restaurant just for dogs, this weekend 11th and 12th April at Shoreditch! The two-day pop-up food joint, called The Curious Canine Kitchen, is organized by spiritual dog trainer Natty Mason in collaboration with whole foods and gluten-free chef Emily Stevenson and will create a 5-course menu just for pooches which will be served by their very own waiters at each of the four doggy tables. The Nature Way Tasting menu for the special event includes textures of tripe with seaweed and kale puree, crispy paddywack with reishi mushroom flaxseed cream, coconut and blueberry chia pudding with gluten-free cinnamon quinoa dog biscuits. The canine pets will also have an array of drinks at their disposal like alkaline water, beef consommé, coconut water. A special treat for the posh poodles at the end of their meals will be a healthy marrowbone from Hill & Szrok to help keep their teeth healthy and clean along with Fresh Breath herbal tea tonic to aid digestion. Any leftovers from the course will obviously, be packed in a doggy bag.
All that dog food could make the humans hungry too! So to ensure the humans aren’t left out while their precious pets are bond, catch up or are just too engrossed in their food, the chefs will also prepare a few dishes like gazpacho raw soup, golden quinoa, coconut and mango salad as well as avocado, blueberry and chia cheesecake for the humans to snack on; though that definitely falls short of the doggie menu!
The fine dining canine pop-up will be set up at ONE, Unit 1, 1 Teesdale Street, London, E2 6GF. Both the days, 11th and 12th April, were quick to sell out, so unfortunately new tickets cannot be bought. The tickets were priced at $29 (£20) for a human-pooch pair and the slot timings are 1pm – 3pm and 3pm – 5pm. The ticket money from the event will be donated to doggy charity.
Fine dining and a good cause? Sounds like a fancy fund raising event. If it is, I wonder if its black-tie!
