The Mint

What takes Asian food from so-so to over-the-moon? Freshness. And, you’ll find plenty of fresh ingredients to satisfy your taste buds at Mint Asian Fusion Café, a new extension of the acclaimed Asian Mint restaurant.

The white-hot eatery welcomes diners at the Highland Park location with bright lights and modern style. Yet, worldly kids will feel right at home when glancing at the menu: Asian favorites like orange chicken served on jasmine rice or Thai fried rice will have them asking for seconds.

Parents who love traditional dishes will delight in a menu that promises, “pad Thai galore.” Go old-school (made modern with its edgy presentation) or crispy with the addition of fried wonton strips to your platter of chicken, rice noodles, bean sprouts, peanuts and more.

Quell curry-fired mouths with the restaurant’s mint water or Thai iced tea. Or, treat the kids to dessert: The green-tea float with vanilla ice cream is sure to tickle their tummies.
