Introducing the Tellabab - a dessert kebab! Yes, you read that correctly.
Sydney's Tella Balls Dessert Bar in Dulwich Hill have taken their indulgent desserts to a whole new level.
The sweet creation includes a home-made doughnut pita filled with milk and white Belgian chocolate shavings - straight off the refrigerated rotisserie, fresh strawberry and banana, house-made whipped cream and lashings of Nutella.
Owner Aki Daikos says he developed the idea with his business partner Simon Kappatos.
"We've been eating Greek Yeeros (kebabs) since we were kids and wanted to create this dish as a dessert. We are famous for our doughnuts therefore our biggest point of difference is making the pita bread as doughnut," he told LifeStyle FOOD.
Yes, the Tellbab has created a lot of attention for Tella Balls Dessert Bar, but it's not the only thing on their menu to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Aki says a lot of his dessert creations were sparked by his childhood memories of eating Golden Gaytime ice-creams and Nutella sandwiches at school.
“These are all sweets that you and I grew up with as kids. You know, just simply going to school and having Nutella sandwiches,” he says.
“All the dishes are created from my childhood and growing up with these products from the Golden Gaytime to having Tim Tams in the house. Golden Gaytimes were one of my favourite ice-creams growing up as a kid.”
Aki's love for Nutella sandwiches has helped him to launch one of Sydney’s most successful dessert bars, which currently uses between 600 and 800 kilos of Nutella each week!
“Our dream was to take all of these amazing products and turn them into incredible desserts and that’s what we’ve managed to do,” he says.
"We are always planning and thinking of unique desserts, and we are actually have something in the pipeline which we are working on launching soon that will blow people's minds again."
The Tella Balls menu is a dream for any dessert lover and you won't find one savory item on the menu. It includes a range of pancakes, crepes and waffles, Tella Balls shakes, crazy cronut shakes, house-made gelato flavours and house-made soft serve.
But it doesn’t stop there. There’s also a decedent patisserie chocolate bar that boasts giant Ferrero bowls, caramel pops, Nutella cheesecakes, red velvet sponge delight and of course their Tella Ball brioche style donuts.
And the good news? The dessert bar is about to be franchised throughout Sydney, then nationally before going global.
“We are looking at taking this Australia wide and also global,” Aki says.
“We’ve been approached by many places around the world including New York, Miami and Dubai. We are currently in talks with them, but the whole concept started in Australia.”
So stay tuned, there could be a Tella Balls Dessert Bar coming your way very soon!
