I had handed Parsley & Mint in downtown Greenville a couple of occasions as it’s straight throughout from Falls Park however had by no means tried it.

The remainder of the menu

None of our dishes had been that spicy so if you’re afraid of overpowering spice, don’t be. Or when you actually love spicy meals, you may ask them to kick it up a notch.
