Award-winning Vietnamese restaurant since 2014, Cyclo has been a pioneer in bringing the authentic flavors of Vietnamese cuisine in Shanghai. With their continued passion and hard work, the Cyclo team opened up PHO TO SHOP in October 2019. A fast-casual Vietnamese diner located on the bustling street of Wuding Lu in Jing’an, PHO TO SHOP is the neighborhood’s go-to when it comes to banh mi, pho and everything in between.

During the first anniversary party of PHO TO SHOP this past October, the city witnessed the biggest pho eating challenge. Ten pho lovers competed to devour their XXL Pho, a 2.8kg bowl full of delicious beef, noodles and soup.

The only one of its kind in Shanghai, the signature Beef Red Wine Noodle Pho is inspired by the French dish Boeuf Bourguignon. Its aromatic flavors are filled with spices of savory herbs and red wine. In Vietnam, it is eaten with noodles. With the influence of French cuisine, freshly baked bread is also a great pairing for the soup, while another option is to enjoy it with rice. 

Vegan Options

Eating healthy shouldn’t involve sacrificing good flavors. New vegan-friendly dishes have been added to the menu for flavorful and nutritious meals.

Get Caffeinated

Vietnam’s culture is deeply rooted in a robust history of coffee production and consumption. As the second largest coffee bean producer in the world, Vietnam has created a variety of coffee flavors and styles. 

Vietnamese coffee distinguishes itself with its significantly bold and bitter flavor. Vietnamese coffee starts with the unique brewing process using the “phin” filter, a metal tin that slowly drips coffee upon adding hot water at the top. As the hot water drips and turns into coffee, it settles in a glass with sweetened condensed milk to balance the strong flavor. 

And voilà, a classic Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk (ca phe sua).

Another take on coffee in Vietnam is the egg coffee (ca phe trung). First made in Hanoi, egg yolk was substituted for milk in the 1940’s when cow's milk was scarce. Egg yolk is whipped with condensed milk to create a light froth to mix in with the coffee. Today, this version is popular around the county.
