It’s slightly off the Mount Lawley strip, but easily in walking distance. Inside is a neon sign begging for Instagram snapability with it’s icy tones and fun words: You had me at cookie.
Get Chunky’s recent opening was welcomed by the people of Perth with more enthusiasm than any of us would readily admit. But hey, when you’re talking New York style cookies with their crisp outside and gooey centres, it’s serious business.
Beyond the cookies themselves (and I’ll get back to them as they’re something to love), the team are also scooping up Take 5 ice-cream from Baldivis, enjoyed wedged between a freshly baked cookie, then customised with toppings of your choice.
For us on our visit, it was a smores cookie with mint choc chip ice-cream with chocolate sprinkles, and a walnut cookie with salted caramel ice-cream and shredded coconut. Delicious! But decadent. Not at all for the faint of heart.
Now let’s talk about their star line up. From a stellar peanut butter cookie, to a marshmallow laden smores and vegan choc cherry ripe – there’s something for everyone. My heart definitely lies with the Anzac cookie, which has texture and bursts with flavour – it’s a very fitting homage to what is a very beloved item in any Aussie’s dessert repertoire.
There’s not much else to say except try it out for yourself! Open late, it’s the ideal place to stop by after a nearby dinner or to take in to a show at the Astor.
