This restaurant has been completely remodeled. When I first stepped inside, I thought I was in the wrong place. The Au Lac I remember was not this trendy looking. The decor was more on the peaceful, serene side, giving you a nice homely feeling when you’re there. The menu had more regular Vietnamese vegetarian food selections. Now, the entire place has turned into one of those posh, full-on vegan places where people go to eat vegan food because it’s the trend. The menu, staff, clientele are all different. But we were there already, so might as well give it a shot.

What’s interesting is that the sign says “Humanese Cuisine.” What the heck is that? So I looked it up and their website states that their chef coined this term “with the belief that we have more in common than we realize. Rather than see ourselves as separate, we are all merely … and wonderfully … human. No labels, no man-made borders to divide us.” So they only serve “plant-based” stuff, with quite a bit of selections focused on “raw and living” food. Awesome!

Now on with the food:

"Bo Luc Lac" - shaken beef made of soy, stir fried with veggies. Pretty flavorful. They serve it by itself so if you want rice, you'd have to ask for it. Also, they ONLY have brown rice.

Deep fried battered tofu, salt and peppered. Very crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, just how I like it.

Wonton soup. Not bad for vegetarian. Wonton soup tastes just right and the stuffing inside tastes like real meat. :)
