(Excuse the shoddy photos, a hail/rainy/dingy day, excitement of the food/bottomless prosecco & embarrassment of getting my camera out, got the better of me)
The Dog Haus (situated above Patterns/formerly known as Audio, at 10 Marine Parade, just by the wheel) is a place I have wanted to try ever since it opened a few months back. Promising delicious dogs, perfect sides and a fab selection of drinks, I was super excited to try it out for myself.
As well as the standard weekday menu, they also offer a fab boozy bottomless brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, which run from 12-3:30 (with drink refills carrying on till 4!) for just £15, which includes your choice of hot dot from the menu (which averages around £5-7 a dog) and either bottomless prosecco’s or bloody mary’s. Myself and Ben popped down one pretty miserable Saturday afternoon to try out the prosecco bottomless brunch, and we were impressed. I had already had a look over the menu online (something I love to do), and had already decided on the Acid Haus dog. A hot dog with deliciousy juicy BBQ Bourbon pulled pork on top of a traditional hot dog, with layered smiley faces on top of that. I also got a side of the seaside chips, and Ben got the same hot dog as me, with a side of the four cheese chips. Although we both agreed our eyes got the best of us, and we probably didn’t need 2 sides of chips, but yano, gotta try these things for you guys! The seaside chips are perfect fries but served with a generous sprinkling of salty seaweed flakes, and tangy vinegar, the four cheese chips are, well, four cheese chips, including mature cheddar, blue cheese, parmesan and ricotta. Now I don’t have the best memories of past hot dogs, as I am usually a burger gal, but these did not disappoint, the brioche bun was lovely, and the sausage itself (supplied by The Sausage Man) was perfectly crispy on the outside, and soft and flavoursome inside, and pretty hefty in size too!
Now, the bottomless drink concept. I was a little apprehensive of this at first, as when we arrived the place was pretty buzzy (good sign) and so I thought it would be such a faff fighting my way through the bar every-time I needed a refill. However I was wrong, very wrong. A lovely member of the bar staff did a lap of the floor every 5-10 mins or so, prosecco bottles in hand and topped up glasses as and when you needed. I also really liked the glasses, those classic shallow type champagne glasses, super fun and stylish.
So if you’re in the market for a very boozy brunch filled with delicious dogs and unlimited prosecco (or Bloody Mary’s if that is your thing), then definitely head to the Dog Haus, I know i’m going to be heading back soon.
