Mint Leaf

Essential Information

831 Marina Village Parkway
Alameda, CA


Rust tones, a maroon-hued banquette and teak-colored paneling, chairs and tabletops greet the business types and on-the-go folks who frequent this always-crowded-at-lunch strip-mall gem. With 15 tables, it’s small, but that’s all that’s small about the Mint Leaf: The menu includes 10 rolls, 10 appetizers, 10 soups and six salads plus a wide array of noodle, rice and main dishes prepared from local ingredients. Start with a crispy imperial roll, move on to a green papaya salad with prawns and then gorge on sizzling shaking beef to satisfy a big appetite, or just tuck into a nice bowl of pho for an equally satisfying experience. To sample a planned multi-course meal, order a Mint Leaf dinner (Taste of Saigon or Banh Hoi) with a friend. Upscale desserts — brioche custard pudding and molten chocolate cake — were on offer recently. Serves lunch and dinner daily.
