Drooling Dessert at Drakes Bistro

The Price: €6.

Other: Evening special of €21.95 for 2 courses and a glass of wine.

Let me start by telling you how I don’t have a single sweet tooth in my mouth. I’m such a savoury person and would reach for a box full of crisps rather than have a small bar of chocolate. I have joked with the other half of how for me, to eat chocolate would be as pleasing as eating a bag of apples. So from that you can really tell how it’s just something I don’t ever crave.

With the chocolate brownie and ice cream I was very pleasantly surprised. I would have loved more when it was finished. The hot brownie with cold ice cream just tasted like perfection. Not to mention the presentation was very on point. This is a dessert you simply have to try. It has appealed to me so much so I bet any sweet toothed human would devour it. If you aren’t there for a main and just want a treat then I can’t think of a better way to spend €6!
