Rust tones, a maroon-hued banquette, and teak-colored paneling, chairs, and tabletops greet the business types and on-the-go folks who frequent this always-crowded-at-lunch strip-mall gem. With 15 tables, it’s small, but that’s all that’s small about the Mint Leaf: The menu includes 10 rolls, 10 appetizers, 10 soups and six salads plus a wide array of noodle, rice, and main dishes prepared from local ingredients. To sample a planned multi-course meal, order a Mint Leaf dinner (Taste of Saigon or Banh Hoi) with a friend. Upscale desserts—brioche custard pudding and molten chocolate cake—were on offer recently. Serves lunch and dinner daily.
