Mint is a little escape from the big city. Hosted by a home chef and his wife, MrT & MissE, they aim to bring locals a surprising evening in an outdoor terrace with their most amazing home-cook food. They don’t have a fix menu, as it will be changed regularly based on seasonal and fresh ingredients sourced from local markets. Check the Plate Culture website or follow them on Instagram for new menu.
The menu is mostly European inspired, and can sometimes be adjusted upon special request such as gluten free, nut free or dairy free.
Our dinner starts with 4 neatly plated conchiglies, which are unfortunately not pictured. Stuffed with sweet roasted pumpkin and ricotta filling, served atop few chopped walnuts, olive caviar and thin layers of melted parmesan. Although the pasta shell is slightly hardened, the parsley puree that served along the side impresses very much with its wonderful complexity.
Followed by a seafood entree, we have skinless pan seared salmon with a tower of refreshing salsa. The salsa has won most of our hearts, composed of diced beetroot, tomatoes, creamy avocado and mango.
The delicious creamy sauce made with coconut, curry and mango is also very loved, not to mention the duck fat fries that come along.
The meal is ended with delectable treats of chocolate caramel tart, South African milk pie and a scoop of toasted almond ice cream.
The scrumptious milk pie is the best out of all, which is basically a combination of digestive biscuit crust, creamy custard-like filling and sprinkle of ground cinnamon.
While Warwick and Tans are both so friendly and accommodating, they show true passion in their food, the plating, as well as the set up around the table. It is a nice spot to chill, to relax and meet new friends.
