Even pooches who haven’t perfected the essential Sad Begging Face can score doggie-licious snacks at the Dog Department café! No trying to choose which knee might belong to the most sympathetic diner, no patient waiting for a gravity-assisted food mishap – all that lucky canines have to do is order off the menu!
Choose from the lo-cal “Waffle” snack (with corn and peas), the “Hot Dog” (tastefully cut on the diagonal and available in either beef or pork), the “Handmade Quiche,” (only 167.5 calories!), the “Dog Hamburger” (a bone-shaped amuse bouche), or the ever-popular “Hot Pancake” (decorated in the best maid café tradition with a smily face). And best of all, at the Dog Department café, faithful Fifis aren’t stuck tethered outside, peering longingly through the window as their overlords enjoy a mid-day repast! They’re more than welcome to come right inside.
Of course, portions do seem to be sized for the more petite breeds, so if you’re a Great Dane, you’d better keep working on your Pitiful Whimper and Soulful Gaze.
Read a novel set in Tokyo…
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
