Cafe Mint seems to attract groups, probably because like most ethnic cultures, food is meant to be shared and consumed in the company of friends or family
The menu at Cafe Mint is quite distinctly Middle Eastern with some flourishes of French cuisine.
The mains we sampled Beef cheeks slow-cooked with tomato, preserve lemon and ras el hanout, served on cauliflower puree with fresh cucumber and Lamb loin spice crusted and served with charred cauliflower, spinach and pearl cous cous, pomegranate reduct are hearty and so perfect for the chilly weather Sydney is now experiencing.
Desserts take a bit of a turn as the Mastic icecream with flavours of the day: pistachio, fig and honey and chocolate with kataifi wafers texture-wise it’s stretchy as a mastic ice cream should be however the pistachio flavour tastes rather artificial with the chocolate faring much better.
Enjoy the pretty pictures:
