I always practice what I preach. So, when I say food should feed the soul and not just the stomach, I try my best to create food that accomplishes just that. And I’m always happy when other people recognize what I do. Thus, when Dallas Observer reviewed my Asian Mint green curry and called it “healing to the soul,” I’m totally over the moon.
Thank you, Alex Gonzalez and Dallas Observer, for your lovely feedback on my green curry.
What makes Asian Mint green curry a “healing” dish?
If you believe in the idea that food is medicine, then you’ll love eating my Asian Mint green curry. As Alex wrote in the Dallas Observer review, this spicy curry is good for keeping the body warm, especially when the weather is cool. The spice can certainly help keep your sinuses clear.
Moreover, I use turmeric in all my curry dishes. Turmeric is known as one of the best anti-inflammatory foods around. According to nutrition experts, you should make it a point to include anti-inflammatory foods in your meals. Such foods will help you control your weight gain, manage your pain if you suffer from inflammatory conditions like arthritis, and prevent other chronic ailments.
Alex also noted in the review that I have created an environment in my restaurants where guests are encouraged to explore the menu and try something new. The review also stated that guests can leave the Asian Mint restaurants “feeling satisfied and full, without also feeling bogged down.” That’s because the dishes we serve at Asian Mint don’t rely heavily on oils and soy for flavor. Our emphasis is on letting the fresh ingredients shine on their own.
Choose your own curry adventure at Asian Mint
It really does my heart good to see my Asian Mint green curry, and all my other dishes, receive praise from one of Dallas’ most respected publications. If you haven’t tried my green curry, I encourage you to do so to see what the buzz is all about.
If green curry isn’t your thing, we have other curries you can try at Asian Mint. We have yellow curry made with crispy onions and sweet potatoes. We have red curry that’s full of bamboo shoots, red bell peppers, and Thai basil. And we have massaman curry, which contains roasted squash and tamarind. Just like our green curry, red curry is right up there on the spice level. But if you prefer mild curries, our yellow and massaman curries may be your thing.
We also offer choices that allow you to tweak your curry depending on your food preferences. You can enjoy your curry with chicken, beef, scallop, and shrimp for proteins. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, you can eat it with tofu instead. Though we generally serve these curries with white jasmine rice, you can ask us to substitute brown jasmine rice. Moreover, all our curries are gluten-free.
I understand that you may be practicing social distancing right now because of the Covid-19 threat. No worries—you can order our curries online. Once your order is ready, you can pick it up at your nearest Asian Mint location.
Try our curries whenever you can. In the meantime, stay safe and see you soon!
