Now licenced!


We have already amassed an incredible amount of enthusiastic followers and now Wassup Dog in East Perth is set to get even cooler, with the launch of a new menu and liquor license.


For the first time in Perth, the funky restaurant will be helping you pair a local brew, gin-based cocktail or wine with your hotdog. The perfect accompaniment for the delicious Moroccan Dog is a chilled Gage Roads Single Fin, the Frenchman Dog cries out for a glass of shiraz and the Gado Gado Dog can only get better with a classic Gin and Tonic.

Taking inspiration from his world travels and honouring his own country’s pride in their cuisine, nomadic Frenchman Jules Aknin worked on the Wassup Dog menu like a mad scientist. But there is method to his madness and an art to his science.
Combining amazing waves of flavour, each Wassup Dog is meant to tantalise and surprise with its unexpected, yet perfectly harmonious use of fresh ingredients. They also cater to all dietary requirements with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options on the menu and weekly vegan specials.

Limited edition launch specials are the mouth-watering Beer Braised Pulled Scotch Pork Dog on wholemeal bread and coleslaw, the mind-blowing Parmigiana Dog with onion jam and the Curry Coco Dog with homemade vegan curry coconut sauce.

Support Your Local Business

Support Local Business in East Perth

Wassup owner Jules is frustrated with the council restrictions in East Perth that limit his ability to develop and grow the loved Wassup Dog trade. This includes tough parking penalties and council by laws restricting customer access.

“It seems that the council is putting short term gains ahead of supporting local growth and development. Jules said that they are essentially “…slowly killing local businesses in an economy that is already slow. Half of the street is empty shopfronts and all of the businesses here are struggling.”

Jules put together a 10 page document about all the benefits that a parklet would bring to the area. A parklet is a parking bay converted into public space with communal wooden deck with seating, some pot plants and art work. Jules offered to fund the whole project but his application was rejected.”

The French businessman sees Western Australia’s economic downturn as a chance to reboot his Wassup Dog chain so it is ready to capitalise when the good times return.
