Situated at a secluded corner of Balestier Road, is an airy local doggie paradise that any puppy worth its whiskers would love to visit. Featuring a playroom, gourmet fare, a small canine art collection and friendly humans dying to make a fuss of you, what more could a pooch ask for?
Conceived after repeated refused entries into restaurants, owner Raye Tan decided that enough was enough. Together with friends, they promptly set up an establishment that would welcome dog owners. Including a separate doggie menu that had been assiduously concocted after much research and consultations with local vets, owners can even order up some special treats like the hugely popular Blueberry cake ($2.50) for their doggie companions, much to standing ovations of approving yelps and growls.
The human fare is pretty decent too, with the lusciously fresh and crunchy signature Urban Pooch salad ($6.50) and the bountiful selection of their Sampling Plate ($6.50). For a more filling meal, diners would be well-advised to tuck into the Teriyaki Chicken Steak on Rice ($10.80) and the BBQ Pork Chops ($12.80), wholesome meals with equally wonderful flavors.
Other animals are definitely welcome here, but as owner of this doggy dominated café, Raye Tan describes the other non-canine customers as “…cat comes in cage, cat stays in cage, cat leaves in cage…” Highly deserving of a big paws up, Urban Pooch is a must-visit for any diner, dog-lover or pooch alike.
