Cyclo Noodle Shop – Pho, Banh-Mis, and Clay Pot Dishes
Last week’s visit to the LIC Flea, got me poking around the neighborhood, and I also had the chance to peek into a few places I’ve been meaning to check out. One such eatery is the Cyclo Vietnamese Sandwich and Noodle shop, which boasts popular foods such as banh-mi sandwiches (my fave), pho, noodles salads, as well as clay pot rice dishes. While I saved all the eating for the actual LIC Flea that day, I made sure to grab a menu to entice me for next time. Here’s a peek. Have you tried Cyclo yet?
