Dining with Dogs is just a “Fluff” story on how it was taking my dogs out to eat. We usually go to casual places with patios. I do note that not every patio is dog friendly and you must find out in advance if it’s ok to bring your furry friend(s). There are some rules to dining with dogs. It’s very important that you don’t let your dog sit on the furniture like in the picture below.
Dogs also should be close by your side at all times and dogs shouldn’t eat off restaurant plates.
You also need to be aware that most of the food you eat can be harmful or toxic to your dog’s health. You need to get a list of dog safe foods from your veterinarian. Basically you can do alright if you just feed your dog small amounts of plain meat with the sauce removed. It would also be a good idea to bring a collapsible water bowl for your friend. I try to dine out with dogs at off times. That works out best to avoid as many people as possible because many people don’t like to dine around dogs. Another thing to try to avoid is dining out with other people’s dogs because the dogs might start barking and you might be asked to leave.
Now that we got that out of the way…. It’s been another very hot summer around Metro Phoenix and it just got bearable to dine out with dogs in Mid-September.
We headed out to Banh Mi Bistro Vietnamese Eatery in Phoenix AZ. BMBVE is a Pho-Free Vietnamese Eatery. They specialize in the Banh Mi Sandwich but also do offer many appetizers, salads, noodle dishes, rice dishes and MORE! Today I got one of my favorites – the Chicken Rice Plate. I enjoy the very flavorful marinated boneless chicken thigh that is always prepared with a tasty char and is brushed with an appetizing glaze. I also get a nice refreshing salad accented with some pickled vegetable, Steamed rice and a pork egg roll.
“We are big fans of Banh Mi Bistro Vietnamese Eatery” “We love everything we get to try here!”
The next weekend was unseasonably cool so we got to dine out again.
Pita Kitchen is a casual Greek/Mediterranean Restaurant in the Arrowhead section of Glendale AZ. Our favorite meal to order here are the Greek Salads. I like the Chicken Kabob topping best and I think the dogs like that one best too!
“! never had Greek Food before…..but something sure smells good!”
“Maybe you won’t like Greek Food Runt, you better leave it all for me”….”I hear Runts like olives. Maybe you better eat the olive and leave the rest for me.”
“Oh that Greek Food was Delicious!” “I can’t wait to go to Pita Kitchen again.”
That was Dining with Dogs for September 2017
Hopefully we’ll see you next month.
