|Au Lac Fine Humanese Cuisine|
Au Lac Fine Humanese Cuisine is a vegan/raw restaurant specializing in Vietnamese and Chinese food. It's been around for quite some time, and is a regular advertiser in VegNews magazine, which is how I first discovered it quite a few years ago. It is located in a little strip mall, and the outside is not very impressive, but the inside is very nice. I wish I had taken a photo so you could see the dining area. Despite the classy interior, the restaurant is laid back and casual. The staff are friendly. And the food is delicious. Half of the menu is composed of cooked vegan items and the other half is raw vegan, with a huge list of elixirs.
I have been here three or four times over the past few years, and I can't remember ordering anything raw. Maybe next time. Anyway, my sister, an omni, really likes this place, especially their egg rolls and vermicelli. She and I had been here before, pre-Chicos and Beans, so when I told her I wanted to go for lunch, she was totally game. We also dragged my brother-in-law with us.

|Beef Lemongrass Vermicelli|
My sister orded this Lemongrass 'Chicken'. It was rather spicy, but really good. The faux chicken had a good texture and taste and I really liked the chili and lemongrass sauce. Through some very tricky manuevering, I stole her leftovers.
We didn't order anything for dessert this visit, though I happen to know they offer some nice 'cheesecakes' and some reportedly good raw chocolates. We hit up the nearby Sensitive Sweets (review coming) instead. I definitely recommend you visit Au Lac.
