Vietnamese Mint is a spicy, slightly peppery herb from south east Asia, delicious in salads and as an accompaniment to meat and fish.
Vietnamese Mint is also often called “Vietnamese Coriander”. It’s flavour is somewhere between mint and coriander – but in truth there’s nothing quite like it. Most popular in Vietnam, Vietnamese Mint is also a common ingredient in the cuisine of neighbouring countries; in Singapore and Malaysia it’s sometimes known as the “laksa herb”.
