In April, my favourite dog cafe announced it’s closure. I was sad to see it close because we loved going there. So when 28th April came by, we made our last trip there. It’s a place Mango came to feel comfortable in. From hiding under the table for the entire time we were there, to exploring the place and even had his first play too! Such memories. Imagine my joy when they announced that they would be continuing their lease afterall, with a brand new look! It’s not easy for a dog cafe to survive in Singapore. Over the last year, we saw at least 3 close their doors. Rentals increases but incomes don’t (or not fast enough). Operating a niche market cafe requires tons of passion to make it work. Glad it worked out for Paw Pet-radise!
After the initial flurry on the opening on 30th May, we headed down the following week. Same place, yet different! The space felt bigger, and there were more seats/tables with the replacement of the sofa booth seats with long tables with benches and chairs. Personally, I like this new furniture because it means that everything is easier to clean, and ticks have nowhere to hide *touch wood* But not a big fan of the harder chairs because of backache (old woman). But with the new seating arrangements, it meant a larger play area for the dogs! Love this. For reference, before revamp: Here

Food wise, the selection has changed pretty much. Previously, it was more of a Western style. Sandwiches, Chicken chop, Pasta, etc. With the new menu, it’s more Asian! And the menu changes! I wonder what new things will be on the menu every time I go there! We’ve been there a few times now, since their re-opening! #loyalsupporter
Actually the above was from Pan Fried Beef Pasta Bowl… But I didn’t want to feed the dogs any pasta… So it’s all beef!
I find it easier to watch the dogs now as compared to before, though it has all along been quite easy to keep an eye on them already.
Coke ($3) / Thai Iced Tea ($6) / Salted Egg Calamari* / Cheese Fries* / Andrea’s Crispy Waffles ($8) / Beef Patties (for dog)*
Beef Bibimbap ($16) / Crispy Garlic Chicken Bento* / Coconut Ice Cream with Grass Jelly** / Beef Meatball Bento (for dog)*
*New items on the menu. Cannot remember price 😡 **Daily specials. Check with staff for any specials!
Overall, the food we’ve had have been pretty good! I love the salted egg calamari (there’s also salted egg fries)! The Teriyaki Chicken and Crispy Garlic Chicken Bentos are awesome. I’m more for Japanese style food while both Tofu stew and Bibimbap were ordered by bf. Not bad either! I think he liked the bibimbap quite a bit. Tofu stew was slightly salty but flavorful. Price-wise, I think my average spending there has increased… Average food price is on the high side, but… if the food’s good, why not? Plus, support for them will go a long way! (Please don’t close down *touch wood*)
Quite sure we will be back again and again though! ❤
