Respond to Review of Au Lac Fountain Valley
Review: I have been to at least...14 different raw restaurants across the country, and this is definitely one of the best, if not the best. If you have any interest in raw food, you have to go. Really. First of all, RAW DONUT HOLES! It's been a while since I've had a donut, but these definitely had a strong donut vibe. They're soft, moist, warm, not at all what I was expecting. You won't be disappointed. I had the pasta di amore made with kelp noodles. This is only the second time I've come across kelp noodles, but I was glad to see them used in this way- served warm like an italian pasta. I have no idea how to describe the sauce, except that it was amazing. I took a bite and I immediately had my boyfriend try it. It reminded me so much of real pasta, it was even buttery! And it came with raw garlic bread that was very spongy and bread-like. The menu is huge and divided into raw and cooked. I ordered only from the raw, but my boyfriend got the cooked "pork" spring rolls and I tried one and they were great. It was a lot to take in and I wish the waitress could have explained it a little more when we were trying to order, but she was still very nice. And later a different waitress did answer some of my questions. The raw menu did strike me at first as too expensive, but after I tried the food it seemed very humbly priced. I hope I can get back soon to try the raw "fried" rice.
