I have to admit I always claim to have a savoury tooth over a sweet one. But last week I might have been proven slightly wrong. I headed down to Pirlo’s Dessert Lounge to check out the menu and celebrate their first birthday with some fellow bloggers.
Pirlo’s Dessert Lounge is a little off the beat and track, but it didn’t stop whilst we were there, showing that the power of word of mouth is strong! I’m hoping after this post you’ll be tempted to head down to Digbeth and check it out.
We started on the monster, quite literally. The Pirlo’s Monster Sundae, made with chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream with ferrero rocher and chocolate sauce. Oh and oreos too! It’s bloomin’ incredible for £7.50. A perfect dessert sharer for 2-3 of you I think, a bit much for 1! We also tried the Neapolitan Sundae and the Tropical Fruit Twist Sundae. I’m not the biggest fan of ice cream, but the gelato was incredible, soft and flavourful.
Next up we got to try some warm desserts. The Pirlo’s Big Waffle – apologies in advance I don’t and still don’t like waffles, but the crepes were incredible. The Choc o Holic Crepe, was just that, lashings of chocolate sauce, M&Ms, cookies and chocolate ice cream – perfect for any chocaholic! I also loved the Wild One Crepe, packed full of fresh strawberries and raspberries, with chocolate sauce and berry ice cream. The crepes were brilliant, not too thick and perfectly cooked. I really recommend!
Luckily we were just trying testers of each thing- it was getting to be a very sugar filled evening! Next up the wonderful Red Velvet Cake, moist (haha) and the buttercream was seriously tasty. We also checked out the Milk Chocolate Fondue, the only thing I didn’t really get was with all the fresh fruit, why tinned pineapple? Other than that, it was a great date night sharer!
Overall Pirlo’s have a great selection on offer (the menu is massive). I really do suggest checking it out if you fancy trying something different restaurant wise! Are you a dessert fan? Would you check out Pirlo’s Dessert Parlour? Let me know in the comments,
P.S. I was invited down to Pirlo’s Dessert Parlour’s First Birthday Party by Delicious PR. As ever all words, opinions and photos are my own.
