Banh Xeo Craving

My first post and it's I'm already whining :sad:

Coming from the DC area where my constant craving for good Vietnamese was always satisfied, I'm living in Augusta (and not just for Masters Week!) and there are NO Vietnamese restaurants within 100 miles (so say the locals) Does anyone have any suggestion for a Saturday lunch place with good Summer Rolls, Spring Rolls, and Banh Xeo? Gas is so $$$, dining out on a Saturday night is now a memory. Thanks! :smile:

Atlanta's got a large and thriving Vietnamese community, and Augusta's close enough that some people commute. Banh xeo's not too hard to find---Viet Chateau in Decatur has it all the time, but you needn't travel that far to get it.

It's farther than 100 miles, true, but you can get a lot of other things done while you're here (like shop for food).

Can you pee in the ocean?

Last week I ate a remarkable Vietnamese meal at The Noodle Club in Atlanta ... right off I 85 .. eyeopener!

Well, I live in Atlanta, and I admit I wasn't sure what "Banh Xeo" was, but now that I've googled it, I have to say I'm ready to hit Buford Highway...
