Belcampo Meat Co. (for you and your dogs!)
The pups and I were recently invited to Belcampo Meat Co., a local butcher shop that has several restaurants throughout California. We visited the West Hollywood location for a dog-friendly lunch and to pick up their new line of raw treats for the little ones!
Belcampo Meat Co. offers an old-world experience to California consumers interested in purchasing high-quality and healthy products. Their meat is sourced exclusively from their own farm in Shasta Valley, which features 20,000 acres of organic and free-range land.
The restaurant in Beverly Hills has seating outdoors if you want to bring your pup along. They also have a small parking lot in front and back, but you may want to valet in the structure around the corner since it gets pretty crowded in the area!
The restaurant offers a menu of delicious items along with a grab-and-go section that you can visit if you’re on the run. I loved checking out all the different unique products they sold – even leather dog collars made from grass-fed cows.
For lunch, we ordered the Belcampo Burger with a side of sweet potato fries and the Chicken & Waffles. I opted to switch out the side for cauliflower salad instead. Everything was absolutely delicious! Be sure to try out their house-made ketchup too.
You can also order their freshly brewed beef and pork bone broth (and find it in the refrigerated to-go section). The broth, along with their many choices of sauces for spicing up the flavor, was super tasty. I know what I’ll be craving in the winter or the next time I catch a cold! Kokoro & Chibi also gave the broth a try and, needless to say, loved it.
The pups also had the opportunity to try out the new dog-focused item on the menu… raw green tripe! This healthy (albeit a bit smelly) treat is considered by vets to be great for dogs, containing essential nutrients and proteins that help support a healthy digestive system! Packed with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, an ideal phosphorus to calcium ratio, and probiotics, it sounds like the perfect treat for Kokoro, whose overly sensitive digestive system has been giving us many headaches every since she was a puppy.
I can’t say the tripe looks or smells that appetizing to people, but I will say my dogs gobbled it up in an instant! Also, their #2 the next day was definitely looking good. I know it sounds weird to say, but dog owners you can relate, am I right?
Be sure to stop by and pick up their new line of organic dog treats if you’re really looking to spoil your pup. I guarantee your dog will love the tripe! Big thanks to the Belcampo team for inviting us to experience the entire line of meaty goods, both for us and for the pups.
