Asian Mint recently had its 15th anniversary, and we had a grand time celebrating it. Were you there for it, our dear Mint Fanatics? If not, you sure have missed out.
What’s an Asian Mint anniversary without good eats?
So, how did we celebrate Asian Mint turning 15? First off, we cranked up the nostalgia by bringing back throwback dishes to our menu throughout October. We offered these dishes in the early days, and we thought it would be nice to bring out these old favorites again.
Among these throwback dishes are Pad Thai rolls—crispy rolls with Pad Thai Woon Sen filling, served with our house-made sweet-and-sour sauce. This was part of our first menu waaaaaaaaaaay back in 2004. Another old favorite we brought back was duck red curry, a dish that used to be exclusive to Oak Lawn.
Then there’s our grilled Thai fish balls and Rad Nah. Just like the duck red curry, the grilled Thai fish balls used to be available only at Oak Lawn. It was our take on traditional Thai street food. Rad Nah, on the other hand, is a classic Thai noodle dish where big noodles are cooked in a wok and topped with greens, gravy, and your choice of protein.
We partied for a cause
Of course, we can’t let the very day of Asian Mint’s anniversary go unnoticed. So we threw a day-long party. Party ticket holders got a one-of-a-kind Asian Mint T-shirt, a selection of free appetizers, and a serving of ginger sparklers.
And because an Asian Mint party is always a party for a cause, we donated 100% of the ticket sales to charity. The beneficiaries were the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation (TRAEF) and Les Dames d’Escoffier Dallas. Both organizations provide scholarships that will help raise up new leaders in the culinary industry.
Thank you for 15 years, Mint Fanatics!
In a competitive industry like the restaurant industry, a business can count itself lucky if it lasts a handful of years. Asian Mint had 15 years. We’re more than just lucky.
We couldn’t have lasted this long without your support, Mint Fanatics. Fifteen years is a long time, and you have certainly made it more interesting and colorful. Thank you.
Here’s to 15 more years, and many, many more!
