Santa Ana, CA 92701
OC Weekly's Description
At Au NatuRaw in Santa Ana, a raw-food vegan eatery, you won’t miss meat here for the same reason you wouldn’t yearn for Disneyland while hiking through the Sierras--there’s a lot to keep you preoccupied and distracted. The best dish is the pad Thai, a concoction that doesn’t taste like pad Thai, yet manages to transcend that fact. It features noodles made by kelp--thin, angel-hair-like strands exhibiting so much of the translucence, resiliency and elasticity of the real thing it’s rather uncanny. It even twirls on a fork the right way. Only when you bite do you notice that the consistency is slightly crunchier, more wiggly and jelly-like than noodles made from starch. The best thing about the dish is halfway into it, you forget you aren’t eating noodles.
Tips from foursquare
So big and so good. Raw taco is a meal for TWO!
Hot Lava Cheesecake is to die for!
EVERYTHING here is GMO-free! That alone is amazing for conscious foodies, but on top of that there are so many great tasting menu items - try the Romaine Tacos app for sure!! Tons of GF and DF items!
