A delicious new concept in dessert kebabs for Perth
Kebabs are usually the food of choice for those at the tail-end of a night out, and needing a quick fix to satisfy those 2am munchies. Now, Perth has a new kind of kebab, but unfortunately you won't be able to buy them at 2am.
Happy Larry's Chocolate Kebabs is a new dessert bar that has opened in the Carillon City Food Court in Perth. It is Perth's first dessert kebab bar and is a tasty, sweet alternative to the traditional oily-filled meaty midnight snacks.

Having never ordered a chocolate kebab before and feeling overwhelmed with the board full of choices, I felt it necessary to ask what the deal was. The very friendly guy behind the counter explained it all to this chocolate kebab newbie simply choose the gelato you want, add sauce and chocolate shavings and some extra toppings. It's all served in a soft, tasty crepe, made from scratch.

Okay, so once we had established the process, now came the choosing. I opted for a scoop of salted caramel gelato and one scoop of chocolate. Nothing too adventurous it was my first time, after all. There was also Mars Bar, cookies and cream and vanilla.

Next comes the shaved chocolate, and this bit is just genius instead of some kind of meat rotisserie, Happy Larry's have a rotating chocolate block, which much like the meaty alternative is shaved off onto the kebab. Yum.

Next is the topping you can take your pick of fruit, biscuits, lollies, chopped peanuts or popcorn. I chose fruit and digestive biscuit as I thought that sounded like an interesting combination. A generous dollop of sauce is added to the mix, the crepe folded over and the kebab ready to hit the palate.
And boy, did my palate get a lovely treat. The crepe was fresh and warm and melted the ice cream ever so slightly. The gelato scoops were sweet and tasty and were a good combination, whereas the biscuit added extra crunch and the strawberries and sauce made everything just that little bit sweeter. It was delicious. A kebab will set you back around $13, but you can find special offers online.
Happy Larry's Chocolate Kebabs is a great new concept for Perth dessert lovers, and you sure won't suffer from that next-morning kebab-regret with this unique sweet treat.
