Escape to Paradise at This Tiverton Restaurant With Sweet Pizzas and Tropical Caipirinhas
I have never in my life experienced or even heard of "dessert pizza" until today and my tastebuds will never be the same.
A small restaurant in Tiverton called Buddies & Brother at 77 Main Road specializes in authentic Brazilian cuisine, delicious signature cocktails, and specialty pizzas you won't find anywhere else around here. I can't begin to tell you how stuffed I am from my feast at Buddies, but I'll be happy to describe it.
Fair warning, if you're hungry and on a diet, consider this your last chance to click off this article before the enticement kicks in.
I started the night with a few Brazilian caipirinhas- a beautiful blend of Brazilian sugar cane moonshine called cachaça, fresh squeezed lime juice, and sugar. I couldn't decide between the pineapple, strawberry, or lime, so I ordered all three and was blown away at the presentation of the pineapple concoction that came in an actual pineapple. A sugar rim complimented the strawberry and lime.
The bell in the kitchen rang throughout the restaurant and I knew right away that the dessert pizza was on its way out. Let me tell you something- if you're looking for a sweet treat, you have to try this for yourself. I started with the "Nutella strawberry banana pizza" which was smothered in creamy Nutella spread and covered in sliced strawberries and bananas.
Next up was my favorite: the "cinnamon banana pizza" that had quite an interesting yet tasty flavor to it. There was a mozzarella cheese base with sliced bananas on top, drizzled with condensed milk and sprinkled with cinnamon. Each bite was better than the previous and I couldn't get enough. The perfect marriage of sweet and savory.
The next time you're in the Tiverton area and you have a sweet tooth, be sure to try one of these outrageously good sweet treats that are made with homemade dough daily. You won't be sorry.
