Barbuzzo: Center City

Barbuzzo: Center City

Barbuzzo may be one of my favorite places in the city to get dessert. Their¬†Salted Caramel Budino¬†is quite possibly one of the best desserts I have ever tasted…and it’s only 8 bucks. Fabulous. I will mention it’s accolades–it has won the Best Dessert of Philadelphia a few times and it is worth every single calorie. I would love to create a recipe to try and recreate this at home–but for the first time ever, I’m not even sure where to start. It’s the perfect balance of sweetness, creaminess, and saltiness. I guess I need to get in the kitchen ASAP and try and figure this out. I would love to have a recipe this delicious in my repertoire.

Anyhow, it’s the addition of the salt that really makes this dessert shine. It’s hard to describe just how great it is in its entirety and I’m not certain I can do it justice by just describing it. I think you all need to come to Philadelphia and try it yourself. I’m serious, if you find yourself here just for a day come order it to go—it comes in it’s own adorable mason jar.

The Breakdown:

  • Salted Caramel Budino (Italian word for pudding) with dark chocolate crust, vanilla bean caramel, and sea salt

The Review:

If I haven’t gushed enough about how delicious this dessert is–I’ll say it one more time…it is fantastic. If you do find yourself in the Center City area definitely give it a try and let me know what you think!
