The Pizzalaki, only at Third Wave Cafe

Pizzalaki from Third Wave Cafe

If you’re a fan of pizza and souvlaki, then you’re in for a real treat with the Pizzalaki, the ultimate fusion dish that combines the best of both worlds. Invented by the masterminds at Third Wave Cafe in Albert Park, Melbourne, this one-of-a-kind culinary creation is a souvlaki wrapped in a large pepperoni pizza, stuffed with a whole slow-smoked beef rib, slices of slow-smoked brisket, grilled bacon, and beer-battered fries. Add to that some fresh lettuce, juicy tomatoes, crispy onions, creamy tzatziki, oozy cheese sauce, and tangy BBQ sauce, and you’ve got a meal fit for royalty.
