Dessert Kebabs Are The Latest Culinary Craze to Hit Australia

Michele Debczak

Conventional kebabs consist of vegetables, sauce, and shaved meat wrapped inside a pita. This dessert kebab on the menu at one Australian restaurant, however, throws convention out the window.

As Mashable reports, the Tellabab from Sydney's Tella Balls Dessert Bar replaces the traditional components of a Mediterranean kebab (a.k.a. shawarma or döner) with decadent, sweet ingredients.

Instead of a savory pita, the dish comes served in a doughnut-pita-bread package. Inside there are banana, strawberries, whipped cream, and milk and white chocolate shavings sliced from the chocolate version of a rotating meat spit. The treat is finished with a drizzle of Nutella on top.

Tella Balls isn't the first place to give kebabs a sugary spin. "Chocolate Shawarma" is a popular confection in the United Arab Emirates, but the Tellabob may be the first example of the dish gaining popularity in Australia.

Australian diners aren't ones to shy away from culinary mashups—the city of Melbourne is home to a restaurant built entirely around the sushi burger craze. Based on the pictures below, this latest fad looks even more indulgent.
