From a massive black bean burger with a fried plantain “bun” to an open-faced veggie taco with a soft plantain shell, this takeout-only restaurant in Brooklyn’s Dekalb Market Hall is the only place we’ve been to where plantains shapeshift from dish to dish - proving that the fruit has the universal range often attributed to potatoes and yucca. So if you want to join the plantain movement for a quick lunch break or picnic in Fort Greene Park, order the “Placo” with a plantain brownie on the side. The pillowy soft sweet was so moist that it stuck to the roof of our mouth between bites, leaving us lots of time to consider why more people don’t make desserts with plantain.
