A fresh take on Vietnamese cuisine
The Mini Mango Story
February 28th, 1981 is the day Mini Mango’s story begins: that day, Harold and Margaret Lapoint of Devon United Church gave our family a start in Canada. We were Vietnamese refugees and they adopted us into their home, without ever having met us.
Our journey to Canada hadn’t been easy. We escaped Vietnam on a crowded fishing boat, were forced to trade our gold to pirates so they wouldn’t take our children, were stationed on a deserted island for a year and had to travel through a number of countries—without being able to speak their languages—before we found a home in Canada.
We didn’t realize it then, but by becoming Canadians we had won the lottery. The opportunities Canada provided were numerous and eventually allowed us to share our cuisine with our fellow Canadians. It’s an opportunity for which we’re eternally grateful.
That’s how we operate Mini Mango: on gratitude. We are grateful to have a wonderful community that supports our cuisine beyond our wildest expectations, grateful to have an amazing staff that have become like an extended family, and grateful to be able to do what we enjoy. We are forever grateful for being Canadian.
Life is sweeter when you eat mangoes
