Food Trip: Mint and Paul

 photo 20150312_181621_zpsizelykl9.jpgPart of me don’t want to share about Mint and Paul. It opened early this year and is a gem of a restaurant in Phu My Hung.

I just love the details!

For starters, we ordered the salmon salad in balsamic vinegar, then the 4 kinds of sausages, spicy garlic chicken wings with cashew nuts, and the black paella. Yup! They’ve got some Spanish in their menu too.

Manuel ordered the Mango smoothie while I ordered the Lemon and Mint smoothie. My drink was perfect in cleaning the palate as I moved from one dish to another.

 photo 20150312_183502_zpsvzrj1srf.jpgWill definitely come back and try the other food in their menu that we missed like the Fish and Chips, pizza, beef steak, and a whole lot more. Their price is in the mid-range but perfectly priced for the food and the portion.

 photo 20150312_181908_zpse1qi3m8c.jpgWe went on a Thursday night at just past 6 pm and we were the first diners. But 10 minutes later, the place was almost filled up. I don’t think PMH can keep this place a secret for much longer.
