When you're having a meal that has been prepared for you, whether you're eating out or ordering takeaway to enjoy at home, the dessert is always an added bonus that deserves some consideration.
If you're going to have a pud, you have to calculate how much you're going to eat beforehand – you have to leave room to appreciate the dessert, after all. Then, you've got to think about whether you're going to try something daring and new for your pudding, perhaps based on the latest trend in dessert dining? Or, do you play it safe and go with something traditional and timeless that you know won't ever disappoint?
If that's the way you're going to play it, then check out our guide to some of Perth's timeless classic puds we've found on dessert menus around the city.
A Thai tea pannacotta topped with coconut crumble sounds intriguing and is certainly worth a try when you want a twist on a traditional Italian dessert but, when you want the original, then you really need to go Italian on this one and order from a restaurant like Ischia.
Pannacotta is one of the simplest desserts and has its origins in northern Italy. Its name means cooked cream and that's exactly what it is; a soft set pudding made with sugar, cream, and gelatin.
2. Chocolate mousse
For out-and-out decadence in a traditional dessert, you can't beat a chocolate mousse and the Guylian Bombe Au Chocolat certainly scores on the decadence front. It's a Belgian white and dark chocolate mousse that also has Guylian praline inside. Unsurprisingly, it's one of the most popular desserts on the Guylian Belgian Chocolate Café's menu.
3. Chocolate cake
Chocolate is always a great option for something sweet at the end of a meal and that's why so many menus feature chocolate cakes as a dessert. Whether you go for something like a black forest gateau or something a little more straightforward like the Chocolate Cake at Deen Street BBQ, which comes with a choice of ice-cream or butterscotch cream, you won't be disappointed. Just make sure you don't eat too much beforehand and don't have enough appetite left to savour your chocolatey pud!
At the Simple Italian Cucina Pizzeria, you'll find all the classic Italian pizzas, along with some classic Italian desserts. Top of the tree has to be the Tiramisu - which translates to "pick me up" - and that's definitely what this dessert will do. One of the most popular Italian desserts, it features sponge finger biscuits dipped in coffee and then layered with a mix of mascarpone cheese, eggs, and sugar. Different parts of Italy claim it as their own creation but it's a dessert you'll find in almost every Italian restaurant around the world today.
