Seattle Weekly's Description

The pork banh mi at Pho Cyclo will set you back just $3.00 and leave you wondering what you ever did to deserve such a bargain. Pho Cyclo's baguette is ideal: an astonishingly crispy crust that shatters with each bite, sending out a squall of crumbs. (Keep the sandwich as far away from the chest as you eat, especially you ladies, unless you like bread shards in your bra.) The interior of the bread is airy, soft, and pleasantly chewy. The sandwich is stuffed with a generous amount of wide, flat slices of pork, hot and fresh off the grill: They're slightly sweet and slightly smoky and bear the unmistakable tang and scent of lemongrass. Thin strips of pickled daikon and carrot are appropriately sour. And while softened by the brine, they still hold a delightful snap when you bite into them. Fresh sprigs of cilantro (not so much as to overwhelm), cucumber spears, and three bracingly hot slices of jalapeño complete the filling, and the sandwich is held nicely together with two thin slathers of sweet mayonnaise.

Tips from foursquare

  • Seattle Met on 11/09/11

    Pho Cyclo, from the folks who brought us Huong Binh, attracts the trillions with its fragrant noodle bowls, its stir-fries, its cheap-cheap banh mis, and its 12 varieties of pho.

  • Jon C. on 11/29/10

    If this place is even close to capacity, consider just walking out the door.

  • Latifa S. on 07/03/10

    Probably the best pho in Seattle. Seafood Pho rock!

  • Ed O. on 05/17/12

    The pho is the shit. The service is shite.

  • Katy B. on 05/04/12

    Ask servers why wall murals depict delivery services not offered.
