The Mint


The Mint Asian Fusion Café is the newest veg-friendly addition to The Shops of Highland Park. Like its sibling location Asian Mint in North Dallas, The Mint offers a nice selection of organic wines, signature cocktails, and a casual chic atmosphere that reminds one of the west coast. Enjoy a Green Tea Tini and Fresh Summer Rolls for starters. The beautifully presented rolls 
are loaded and topped with super fresh vegetables, hints of mint, and the accompanying peanut sauce, with its subtly sweet and ultra smoky flavor, make this appetizer a hearty meal in itself! For a lighter start, try the nutrient dense and brilliantly green seaweed salad. Several dishes can be made vegan, but the already vegan Stir-Fried Asian Vegetables with Tofu is the perfect main course. Served with a side of jasmine rice, the dish includes an assortment of Asian vegetables and crispy tofu cutlets in a savory brown sauce.  Moreover, the staff at The Mint are friendly and extremely attentive. Completely in tune with today's gastronomical variations, the servers make it a point to learn of any food allergies or preferences.

Visit The Mint on Friday nights for $7 Mango Martinis or on Saturday nights for $7 Green Tea Tinis.

The peanut sauce is NOT VEGAN

Thanks for the tip, bc :)

Here's a list of what we can get:
1. Summer Rolls are vegan without Peanut Sauce (you can use sweet & sour or the dumpling sauce, though).
2. Pad Kee Mow - tofu/veggie, no egg
3. Pad See Lew - same thing
4. Stir Fried Asian Veggies and Tofu
5. Ginger Chicken, no chicken add tofu
6. Fried Rice, Green Basil Fried Rice, Pineablle Cashew Tofu Fried Rice, & Yellow Curry Fried Rice - all with no egg, of course.
7. Sweet Sticky Rice for dessert.
