Sausage Showcase on Hello Houmous

Who would have thought that houmous would be delicious on a Not Dog!? Not us… until we tried it and loved it!

Hello Houmous

Hello Houmous is our Not Dog for the refined palate, although who doesn’t love houmous anyway!? Our simple houmous recipe is perfectly complimented with tasty, freshly roasted red peppers and smoked paprika.

The Hello Houmous 'Vegan Dog' style is very popular at Not Dogs Birmingham... no wonder it’s a favourite of many of our Not Dogs fans - and secretly us too!

Not Dogs Birmingham is Three Months Old!

Happy birthday to Not Dogs Birmingham! Our doors have been open at the Bullring’s LinkStreet for just 12 weeks now and what fun we are having!

Our fantastic Crew have welcomed many people (veggies, vegans and meat-eaters!) into the restaurant, seven days a week and we’re looking forward to seeing many more of you.

Over the course of three months we’ve served up over 8000 Not Dogs, sent more than 300 tweets, gained over 3000 new followers on social media and introduced more than 1000 customers to our brand new Queen B Burger!

Plus, the people of Birmingham can now get Not Dogs in the comfort of their own home via Not Dogs' first delivery service with Uber EATS.

We’re really excited to make some little additions in the restaurant, after learning so much in just three months - design and menu changes are coming your way over the next few months.

Thank you to all of you; Crew, Bullring staff and most importantly our Not Dogs fans for making us feel so welcome!

All Hail The Queen B Burger

We’ve spent hours taste testing and perfecting our recipe and here it is… our sassiest menu item - The Queen B Burger.

A ‘meaty without the meat’ quarter pounder burger, topped with mozzarella cheese, crisp fresh lettuce and a sprinkle of chopped onions encased in a warmed bread bun topped off with our very own Not Dogs secret sauce.

In celebration of the women in our lives that are empowered and strong; we wanted to name our first burger The Queen B…and let’s not even start on our Beyonce obsession.

Available at the Not Dogs Restaurant in Birmingham now!

#SausageShowcase on the Plain Jane

Our first ever Not Dog, the Plain Jane is actually not so plain! It just happened that Not Dogs co-founder Jane enjoys a simple Not Dog and the 'Plain Jane' was created in her honour!

Quorn Bratwurst topped with Heinz Ketchup and French's Mustard

At Not Dogs we only use quality ingredients, things we use ourselves at home and we knew when creating the simplest of Not Dogs that high quality was key which is why we're passionate about both Heinz and French's. 

We did try various tomato ketchups and different types of mustards but these two were the perfect combination on the Plain Jane. It's fantastic when customers who may be a little wary of mustard try French's on the Plain Jane and just love it! Plus, the red and yellow look great together - another important part of creating the perfect Not Dog every time!

The Lowdown on the Not Dogs Menu

Our little restaurant in Birmingham’s Bullring has now been open for 8 weeks and we’ve been so lucky to welcome lots of Not Dogs customers through the doors to enjoy our menu items. Over the short amount of time we’ve been open we love to listen to our fans and are planning on expanding the menu but, for now, we thought we’d share a few highlights…

The Secret Stars!
Alongside our original Not Dogs menu of six different Not Dogs, we have a few items which are just too good to miss…

Loaded Waffle Fries - our tasty, lightly seasoned baked potato lattices are even better fully loaded with… 
Kickin’ Katie Nacho Dog (guacamole, grated cheddar, nachos and jalapeƱos)
The Original Frank (Heinz Ketchup, French’s Mustard, American cheese sauce and house-made beer-fried onions)
Hello Houmous (houmous, roasted red peppers and smoked paprika)
Cha-Cha Chilli (house-made chilli-con-carne)
Ticklish Tikka (vegan tikka masala with crushed popadoms and coriander)

Beau the Banana Brioche Dog - as a light, sweet option, the little Beau Dog features a freetrade banana in a steamed brioche bun topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and sprinkles of gold stars

The Vegan Range
Across the menu we’ve made sure our vegan friends are not left out so, choose from…

The Vegan Dog - our must-try, lightly smoked seitan-based hotdog topped with ‘veganized’ toppings such as…
Kickin’ Katie Nacho Dog and The Original Frank (drop the cheese), Plain Jane, Hello Houmous or our favourite the Ticklish Tikka made with vegan pieces in a house-made, creamy coconut masala sauce

The Gluten-Free Options
Of course, we want everyone to be able to enjoy Not Dogs so we’ve introduced a gluten-free wrap to replace our toasted hotdog bun for a gluten-free option. We’re working on getting a tasty gluten-free bun but the wrap is a nice, lighter option anyway. As well as that, there’s no nuts of the menu at Not Dogs and we offer options with no dairy too!

Depending on what delicious toppings you pick, our rather large Not Dogs range from 340 calories and go up to 545 calories. Sides come in at 300 calories a portion and our ‘sweet treat’ Beau the Banana Brioche Dog just 230 calories.

We’re looking forward to adding lots more yummy Not Dogs menu items soon!
