I’ve been meaning to visit Vietnamese Mint in Bulimba since it opened. As you should all know by now, I am an absolute pho-fiend and love trying all there is in Brisbane. And around the world for that matter!
Anyway I heard that Vietnamese Mint had created some pretty funky and interesting salads so I went in to check them out. I ordered both (naturally) and a pho (obviously) and was impressed by all three! The Unicorn noodle salad was chicken based with a traditional vietnamese salad mix but with noodles infused with natural food colouring to make them look just like what a Unicorn would delicately eat before prancing about. The Magic noodel salad (my favourite) was a thai beef salad with noodles infused with Butterfly Pea Flower! They were gorgeous and blue. What I loved most about them, was that while they were fun and beautiful, they both still maintained their authentic, fresh salad flavours.
The pho, well damn. Damn delicious. Pho-nomenal. I was a happy little diner there with my three meals. Did I look ridiculous? Slightly. Did I care? No. I was too busy devouring everything and deciding which I would keep for lunches over the coming days. I ended up taking away some pho for breakfast and salad for lunch. Mmmm-mmm.
Oh! And I tried these special new drinks they have too, sparklers. I tried the Butterfly Pea Flower (honestly, why would you chose anything else?) and it was sparkly and sweet and fun.
A fab place to take the kids during the school holidays for a bit of lunch time fun too.
