Au Lac Vegetarian Restaurant

16563 Brookhurst St. Fountain Valley, CA 92708 | Fountain Valley | 714-418-0658

Location 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.
