Background: Little Green Cyclo is a Vietnamese food truck started by Chef Quynh Nguyen, Monica Wong, and Susie Pham who’s main purpose is to support local business, be eco-friendly and cook with the best ingredients possible. Their hard work and dedication to quality food has earned them the #1 Bay Area Food Truck in the Chase Sapphire’s 2011 Eaters’ Choice Awards.
Little Green Cyclo is inspired by the famous Vietnamese street food. The inspiration is apparent in their name, cyclo, referring to the three-wheeled rickshaw vehicle that sells banh mis on the streets of Vietnam.
Garlic Noodles ($8): We ordered the famous garlic noodles cooked with green onion oil. This is one of the most popular dishes on the menu. I can definitely tell why, the noodles were a little chewy and enhanced with an abundance of flavor from the crispy peanut bits and the zesty scallions!
Masami Free Range Lemongrass Grilled Park Banh Mi ($7): We felt obligated to order a banh mi sandwich since this is the staple meal of the menu. A banh mi is a famous Vietnamese sandwich that consists of pickled carrots & daikon, cucumbers, jalapenos, cilantro, mayo and soy sauce all squished between a big French baguette. I’m a personal fan of all things banh mi and Little Green Cyclo did an awesome job! I liked it because it was a hefty sized sandwich that was filled to the brim with all their organic fixings. Banh mis are a great mixture of sour, sweet and spicy!
Thai Iced Tea ($3): Don’t forget to order the thai iced tea! It’s a sweet and refreshing way to cool yourself on a nice sunny San Francisco day!
