This vegetarian, vegan, and certified kosher eatery in Scottsdale puts a Vietnamese spin on meatless dishes, thanks to owner and chef Mai Ly, who, along with her husband, managed similar restaurants in Maui for more 20 years. On the corner of a strip mall, the atmosphere is casual and easygoing, with bright green walls, linen-topped tables, and '60s tunes in the ackground. Summer rolls, spicy lemongrass noodle soup, or green papaya salad are nice places to start; and for those seeking more "meaty" dishes, the vegetarian citrus "spare ribs," five-spice pho with marinated soy beef, or the guest favorite kung pao soy chicken, are some of the standouts.
BEWARE-ANIMAL INGREDIENTS IN THE NAME OF VEGAN/VEGETARIAN FOOD!!
BACK STABBED - THIS FOOD IS NOT FOR VEGGIES OR VEGANS !!
"This is NOT for the extremely high prices for the food."
These people are adding eggs in their cakes and other items and serves along vegan dishes. They asked us to try some vegan desserts after main course and we ordered carrot cake (they did not tell us this before that they had eggs in it)
I heard somebody talking and asking ingredients and I also asked and then they disclosed. I was seriously annoyed with this service. When I asked owner why the hell they are serving this nonsense cakes to cheat on customers, and he explained proudly that they are kosher and no vegan bakeries in Scottsdale, AZ!! I explained two times that why cake is so important! Can't they serve vegan desserts apart from cake s if they are not available, in a vegan restaurant and he could not understand or accept it.
I see a clear strategy to make couple of more dollars on every order without notifying customers in the name of cakes having eggs.
BEWARE THIS IS NOT A VEGAN RESTAURANTS IT HAS ANIMAL INGREDIENTS IN MANY OF THEIR ITEMS!!!
I had drunk lots of salt with hot water later on and had 3-4 vomits after it by manually inserting fingers in my throat to clean my stomach.
NEVER VISIT AGAIN.
Although it’s on Scottsdale Rd I must admit it’d be easily overlooked given it’s located in the center of a strip mall. The dining area is small but bright. Upon entering at lunchtime I found a full house but was welcomed with a smile. Thankfully there was a small table in the rear that was perfect for me since I was dining alone.
Per their website, Fresh Mint puts a Vietnamese twist on regular vegetarian dishes. All of their dishes are 100% vegetarian and made only when ordered to guarantee freshness.
Although I could order off of the regular menu I was grateful for the lunch menu that offered several of their main dishes for a lunch time price, which also helped me narrow down my entree of choice. One drawback I found is that the regular dinner prices of entrees cost up to $14, which is more expensive than I’d like to pay for the location and ambiance of Fresh Mint. This is not necessarily something that would keep me from eating here but I would definitely keep in mind. Maybe I’ll just stick to lunch.
Ultimately I chose the Kung Pao Soy Chicken that contains spicy classic Kung Pao sauce with garlic, white and green onions, soy chicken, zucchini, bell pepper, carrots and peanuts
I patiently waited for my food while I enjoyed watching the hustle and bustle of the lunchtime crowd. In addition, my seat was located right next to the bar where the rolls and salads were being prepared. Soon my lunch arrived.
I’ve found that I prefer my tofu pretty well done and not squishy inside, so I’m always hesitant to try new dishes…but my tofu was done perfectly! With that being said, I’m sure you’re not surprised that I ate every morsel of food on my plate.
It's no secret that Asian restaurants are a vegetarian's best friend. When in doubt, you can always go for a veggie stir-fry with rice, or anything with tofu. That's fine with us, but we always did find it kind of strange that so few Asian joints actually cater to the veggie crowd. At Fresh Mint, though, there's no meat on the menu, period, which means that vegetarians can have a field day at this bright, lime-green cafe. The list of appetizers includes several kinds of fresh rolls as well as exotic salads, including green papaya salad and lotus salad. Among the soups, there's a meat-free take on pho, a Vietnamese classic. And entrees include noodle dishes, curries, various combinations of veggies and tofu, and some intriguing faux meat specialties, such as kung pao soy chicken, and caramelized soy fish in a clay pot. There aren't many fried things here, and that's fine with us, though you don't have to be a vegetarian to appreciate the healthful stuff.
