Pho To Shop is a casual Vietnamese restaurant in Jing’an operated by the same people behind Cyclo. Think of this eatery as an express version of Cyclo—an abridged menu of Vietnamese favorites suitable for a quick no-frills meal.

The space is simple—minimal decor, booth seating, and comfortable.

Food at Pho To Shop

The menu features Vietnamese favorites from spring and rice rolls, bahn mi (sandwiches), rice dishes, burgers, pho, and noodles. The dishes are suitable for individual meals but are not difficult to share if you’re willing.

Like Cyclo, Pho To Shop is as authentic as it gets, seeing as both restaurants are run by Vietnamese natives.

In Summary

Located along one of the hot food and drink streets in Jing’an, it’s a great addition to the neighborhood, as there are few Southeast Asian restaurants nearby. It’s nothing fancy, but the food is tasty and is considerably affordable.
