Google definition of Bonzai: A Japanese cheer of enthusiasm or triumph.
This name for a dessert couldn't be more fitting. While I didn't yell "BONZAIIII" when I knew we (Ben and I) would be going to Flanigans tonight for The Bonzai Brownie (TM), I was pretty excited. What exactly is this dessert? It is a monster size brownie (with no nuts, thank goodness…nuts take away from its delicious chocolaty-ness), topped with two scoops of Edy's Vanilla ice cream, plus a helping of whipped cream on top. Then, it's doused with chocolate syrup and big Oreo chunks. And then, surrounded by a fort made of Kit-Kat bars. I bet you’re freaking out just reading about this. Good thing Ben and I took a picture. Looks good and tastes even better. This is a little gem (although this description may seem contradictory since the calorie count is like 10 time the amount any human should consume in one day--or maybe two) worth trying. Countless times we have gone to Flanigans just for The Bonzai Brownie(TM), and tonight was no exception. (Note: they have delicious food too. Their cole slaw..mmmm). They have plenty of locations in South Florida, giving you plenty of opportunities to enjoy!
