Made Famous By: Mint Leaf
In an effort to get to know Newport Beach a little better we have been going on eating adventures. One of our favorite places back in Glendora was a Thai place called The Lucky Elephant. This place is nothing short of amazing. Feeling the need for a little Thai, my Mom found a place down here on the Balboa Peninsula called Mint Leaf. It was exactly what we had been craving.
Fresh ingredients and bright flavors in every dish. I don’t think the spring roll could possibly be any fresher or crisp. AH-mazing! (I apologize ahead of time for the low quality iphone pics.)
My favorite dish would have to be the coconut soup. Every time I think about it, my mouth waters. Put some sticky rice in and it = HEAVEN!!
The orange chicken was also a favorite. The perfect balance of tangy and sweet.
