Vegan Vietnamese & Chinese cuisine, and a raw menu

Au Lac is functionally two restaurants within one. One menu and kitchen offers vegetarian versions of traditional Vietnamese fare In addition to a few vegetable-only dishes, they use mock meat to create authentic dishes without the use of meat, eggs or alcohol.

The other menu is raw vegan (prepared in a separate kitchen) that is composed of highly-unusual raw vegan dishes including appetizers, soups, salads, entrees and desserts.

One of the very best raw menus anywhere in the country. They also have a cooked, vegetarian menu, which, by the way, is also one of the best I've ever had. I'd say it's on par with "Quintessence," in NYC. Few raw menus are as memorable as these two restaurants.

I've taken groups of friends here that do not eat vegetarian or raw, and so far everyone has loved it. Many keep coming back, it's that good!

The restaurant is so popular they have doubled in size (purchased the place next door to expand)! Lines sometimes build out the door. The food is spectacular as is the ambience.

I recommend the Humanese Soup (best raw soup) as well as the raw garlic bread (amazing), the donut holes (possibly the best raw desert I've ever had, and the most creative) as well as "Da Bowl" salad. But you can't go wrong no matter what you order. And the cooked "pho" soup is superb because the base is made from fresh anise.

:-) ENJOY!

Its a fun place, if you can go on a week night its less packed. Their raw stuff is awesome get the pasta di amore, its an eating experience. Get the raw chocolate for desert, I could live off those alone. The people there are really nice and if you have questions they don't mind answering them. I am there at least once a week.
