Look By Plant Love House’s Sizzling Brownie

Brooklyn fans of the Elmhurst, Queens family business Plant Love House will be thrilled to learn the tasty Thai restaurant recently opened Look By Plant Love House in Prospect Heights. In addition to delicious entrees, the new location is serving the eatery’s unique and decadent desserts. Our pick is the dramatic “Sizzling Brownie”, which is a homemade, warm brownie served on a piping hot plate and topped with marshmallow, caramel and chocolate fudge cream right before your very eyes. (Yes, it sizzles.) Also worth trying: the Volcano Roti, crisp fried dough on a hot plate, crowned with bananas, milo powder condensed milk and marshmallows, or the more restrained Plant Love Toast, a sweet bread served with bananas and vanilla ice cream.
