NOLA Food Tour // MINT: VIETNAMESE MODERN CUISINE
With its name, Mint Modern Vietnamese Bistro & Bar declares its membership in the new breed of New Orleans’ Vietnamese restaurants, such as Ba Chi Canteen or Namese.
With such a twist Mint takes on the modern times in which most menus crossover for the benefit of hip era that is now. While offering more of a foodie appeal, this place is nothing short of sensational.
Partly it’s the playful language of the menu, which is written entirely in English. Appetizers are labeled as “teasers.” Spongy steamed buns filled with pork belly are called “sliders.” And beyond the dishes now familiar to locals like pho, bánh mì or vermicelli bowls, Mint has its own take on chicken and waffles along with a burger topped with kimchi and accompanied by sweet potato fries.
