Respond to Review of Au Lac Fountain Valley
Review: I've never had vietnamese food so my girlfriend ( a met eater) and i decided to try it. i started off with the Gỏi Cuốn Spring Rolls (rice paper, greens, vermicelli, soy shrimp, soy ham, peanut sauce). I liked everything except the soy ham which was really rubbery. to the point of me gagging. i didnt have my girlfriend try it because shes super picky. their peanut sauce was awesome and the rools were great- if you can get past the rubbery ham. i then had the Ga Xa Ớt Lemongrass Chicken (soy chicken, pan seared chili, garlic, shitake sauce) which was DIVINE!!!! my girlfriend tried it and she thought the same. she said she'd order that if we came again. and that's the first time i've been able to get her to try "fake" meat. im still excited that she liked it! she ordered the vegetable plate and refused to try the tofu (which was delish!) but she really liked the veggies. we both cleaned our plates. for dessert we ordered the chocolate candy and the chocofantasy. the candy we both devoured but the chocofantasy she wasnt too keen on. it was good, but the first bite was a little weird. it grew on me though. i liked the ambiance of the place- it was a lot nicer than either of us was expecting. the only issue we had was that when it came time for the check they overcharged us. i asked about it and it turns out that they had given us the "old" menus with the cheaper prices and a LOT smaller selection of food and drinks. i explained to them that we ordered 2 desserts beause of the price. i just wanted the difference removed- but the removed one dessert, which was really nice. we both plan to go back, but hopefully well get the "new" menu because there were others things we wouldve liked to try. its too bad that they havent changed out all of their menus. its also a little odd, but.... well be back!
