Dek Sen is one of our favorite Thai restaurants in Elmhurst. It’s a small cash-only place where you can watch music videos on a TV mounted to one of the walls, and you can get some excellent turnip cakes and pad kee mao here. But what you really come here for is dessert. Their milo sizzling roti, for example, is absolutely massive and comes topped with whipped cream, marshmallows, and chocolate sauce in an extremely hot cast iron pan. It also has a big pile of ice cream in the center and some corn flakes sprinkled on top, which is a very nice touch.
