We were looking for a place to eat dinner late Sunday night and The Mint popped up in our search. Holy crap, it’s open till 2:00am every night!
It’s a bit hidden as it’s down a flight of stairs but it’s located right beside Taste of Europe.
The inside is quite large when you take into consideration their venue space. There was a comedy roast going on ($10.00) which sounded entertaining.
Loved the hanging lights as decor and candles at the table. Cute date night spot.
The menu is split into small plates, shared plates, large plates, fresh sheet and dessert.
They’ve got weekly specials (Sunday to Thursday). Sunday is select wines above cost (interesting description), shafts and platters. Happy hour is daily from 5:00 to 7:00pm. Click here for the drink menu (1, 2, 3 and 4).
Charcuterie platter ($13.00 special)
Normally, this is $18.00 but it was on special Sunday. Proscuitto, soppressato, aged Manchego, gherkins, crackers and bread. There’s supposed to be a red onion jam and dried fruit in this platter but we didn’t get any. Instead, we got some Dijon mustard. Platter was enjoyable but definitely overpriced.
Tibetan momos ($8.50)
Hand rolled, made in house dumplings with tomato cilantro achar. We opted for the pork momos. These weren’t what I was expecting but turned out to be tasty. They are smaller and deep fried but the filling was juicy and flavourful. Pricey for 6 dumplings.
Decent spot and interesting that they serve some Nepalese/Himalayan dishes.
