Part 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.
It is owned by the same people who run MJ’s Kitchen and like it’s home-cooked Korean food counterpart, Mint and Paul serves delicious delicious meals!
The ground floor is where the kitchen is but on the upper floor is a charming open and airy dining area.
The furniture, ambiance, and food kinda reminds me of a cross between L’usine and Au Parc. But since the owners are Koreans, there definitely is some Asian cuisine there too.
There are wonderful vintage touches all over the restaurant and sets the tone for a superb dining experience.
Even the wash area is vintage-y —
The lights used all over were vintage bulbs. I think I may have seen such bulbs being sold at L’usine.

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.
Will 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.
We 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.
