A new sushi/Vietnamese restaurant has taken over the space that once housed the Filipino restaurant Pinoy Fast Food at 7159 E. Broadway.

Fresh Sushi Pho opened on Jan. 14 with a menu of classic sushi and traditional Vietnamese dishes.

The restaurant, owned by Duoc Le, has a wide-ranging menu of sushi, including rolls employing eel, crab, salmon and tuna. Its Vietnamese dishes include fried rice entrées and a wide selection of pho, the popular Vietnamese noodle soup with prices starting at $6.99. Sushi runs from $3.50 to $9.

Le, a native of Vietnam, has lived in Tucson five years after moving here from Canada. He worked for a large restaurant in Canada for several years and spent a couple years working for a Tucson Asian restaurant before launching his own eatery, he said.

Fresh Sushi Pho is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and closed Sundays.
