The Purple Mint

Southeast Asian vegetarian fusion. A koi pond at the entrance suggests the kind of place you’d expect to find attached to a Buddhist temple, but the Purple Mint is situated in a strip mall among flower shops and hair salons.

The veggies are fresh and cooked delicately, and the bright dishes appeal as much to the eyes as the palate. The soy “meats” are exceptional, especially the lemongrass chicken/beef, spicy fried shrimp, and steak filet mignon. Don’t miss the Summer Rolls: wraps of tofu, purple mint, basil, jícama, carrots, peanut sauce, and optional fried egg.
