Our chronicle takes us from Vietnam, to California, and where we have called home for the last 25 years, Tampa Bay, Florida. We started our chef life from a small kitchen in California. We quickly learned the ropes and slowly got into the food truck business. After working many hours and days, we were able to save enough money for our own food truck business. With that, we traveled with our food truck over to Tampa, Florida and started one of the first food truck businesses in the area. Over 25 years of running a very successful business, we have decided to retire from the food truck industry and start Green Mint Asian Grill. Our new adventure begins here – stay tuned to hear what is in store for us in the next chapter via www.facebook.com/greenmintasiangrill.com
We love food. It’s our hobby and passion! Green Mint Banh Mi is a popular banh mi (sandwich) from the Capital of Vietnam, Hanoi. We are excited to be the first to bring this sandwich to the Clearwater area. Ours is different and special in the way that it is prepared, with freshly made Green Mint whipped mayo topped with shredded Chicken and cold cut combo. The pickled daikon & carrot and cucumber give it that refreshing crunch. But beware of the jalapeño as it can give you that taste of spicy hotness.
Vietnamese food is light and refreshing, but don’t be fooled as it does not lack in flavor. From the Vietnamese coffee harboring a strong, sweet taste which will help to ensure that you stay awake all day to the Bun a/k/a Noodle salad, it’s the perfect light meal for lunch or dinner. Don’t forget the Pho, an item that put Vietnamese cuisine on the map, great for the cold days or when you're not feeling well. Pho, many times is compared to Mom’s homemade chicken noodle soup.
We are always striving to perfect our food because it’s what we love to do.
