Every meal served from Mint’s kitchen contains a colourful bonanza of vegetables, which makes for a spectacular
presentation and mouth-watering flavours. “The base of all our meals are healthy greens, which can be topped up with fish, meat, chicken, cheese, eggs or more vegetables,” says Michaël Schouwaerts, who runs the lunchroom with his wife Nathaly Geysen and their friend Pieter Loridon, a former professional basketball player. Their sandwich with Parma ham and goat’s cheese, for instance, comes with lettuce, cabbage, carrot, cucumber, onion, sundried tomatoes, nuts, honey and a chive dressing. “We don’t serve simple sandwiches,” Schouwaerts points out.
