In Augusta GA recently I found Pho
in a free standing Japanese stir fry place that otherwise probably has food like the mall Japanese places you find. It is the Wasabi Express
at 2838 Washington Road. Half the menu at this place is Vietnamese. I did not take a meal there
but the small medium and large bowls, usuual combinations and meat varieties, are $4.99, medium $5.99, and large $6.50. The same sizes with no meat are $3.99, $4.50, and $5.00 respectively. No Pho
chicken or shrimp versions are offered although the Japanaese side of the menu includes those meats. The Japanese side of the menu does not include sushi.
Probably because of the military bases nearby Augusta has a variety of ethnic food, more than you might expect of a small Southern city.
Augusta is at or near the end of I-20. Wasabi Express
is a short distance south of the Interstate if you are driving through and wanting to try Pho. I repeat I did not take a meal there. If
you are in Augusta to visit someone in the service or for an event such as the Master's, and Augusta National is not far away, you will quickly find that Washington Road is one focal points for food on both sides of I-20.
The local booster magazine and counter-culture newspaper published the results of the "Best of" voting recently. I don't think thast Pho
was a category. I'd like to hear from someone who has eaten at Wasabi Express
