OC Weekly's Description

Inconspicuously located at the center of a Fountain Valley strip mall, this restaurant has been dishing out delectable vegan cuisine for more than 13 years. At one time a legitimate hole-in-the-wall, it recently underwent a major interior overhaul, adding a little class to its cruelty-free dining experience. It offers a laid-back atmosphere, a full range of wellness-oriented infusions and a second menu dedicated to raw foods. From seasonal spring rolls to steaming hot bowls of "chicken" pho, every dish is prepared with genuine love, making Au Lac a wonderland for herbivores and health enthusiasts alike.

    Try the Nem Nướng Cuốn! Vegan or not, this beautifully crafted and immensely flavorful dish is a great way to kick start your meal and salivary glands!

    Raw menu is excellent Try the desserts they're pretty good. Be prepared to bring extra money food ranges from 5-17ish dollars.
