Life on the Veg: Au Lac Vegetarian Restaurant in Fountain Valley
Humanese, if you please.
Thankfully, Au Lac Vegetarian Restaurant in Fountain Valley, which has been dishing out delectable vegan cuisine for more than 13 years, would never dream of faking the funk. A place where you can witness the phenomenon of yuppie and hippie dining side-by-side, Au Lac offers a laid-back atmosphere and an entire second menu dedicated to raw food, making this place is a genuine wonderland for herbivores and health enthusiasts alike.
Hot and Sour Soup
At $9, this dish comes out piping hot and seasoned with absolute perfection. When combined with brown rice, there is no need to add or subtract any salt (which might explain the absence of the condiment on your table). Slightly sour with just enough spice to tickle your inner ears, the hot and sour soup is an excellent appetizer to ward off the winter chill.
There are many other wondrous dishes to be had at Au Lac, including a full bar of healthy smoothies and juice infusions, so expect to visit multiple times in order to grasp the full scope of this hidden gem's awesome menu. Bring the family and dig in!
