World's Most Expensive Pho (same owners as the Crustacean on Polk St)

Recommended Posts

The AnQi Phở is no piddling bowl of broth, noodle and tendon, gulped down in some Westminster dive at 2 a.m. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) This is phở of another caliber, and at a minimum cost of $5,000 per bowl, it's definitely meant to be savored. Made with A5 Wagyu beef, white alba truffles, a foie gras broth, hand-raised bean sprouts and "noodles" created, through some sort of gastronomic wizardry, from rare blue lobster meat, it's quite likely the world's most expensive bowl of soup.

This staple of Vietnamese cooking, elevated here with luxury ingredients, will be auctioned off at the Bash Benefactor Dinner on Friday. Proceeds benefit the Children's Hospitals of Los Angeles and Orange County as well as the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital.

Bidding for the bowl of soup starts at $5,000, but will only go up from there. Don't worry if you can't attend the invitation-only dinner and auction, held at Tiato, a Vietnamese café opened last summer in Santa Monica as part of the House of An, the group that owns Crustacean in Beverly Hills. The $5,000 AnQi Phở will also be featured on Crustacean's permanent menu with proceeds continuing to benefit the Children's Hospital.

I told my Viet friend about this and he brought up a good point- phở is a "poor man's soup", so it's pretty ironic that it's so pricey. Sounds awesome.

uhhhh...sounds so good...i good bowl of pho is a treat...can you imagine this.

when we traveled to vietnam all the hotels we stayed at were "westernized" and had these breakfast buffets but in addition to the omelette, pastry stations they had a pho station where they had their regional pho that you could order and customize to your taste. it was so awesome and a great way to start the day. i love beef pho but the spicy seafood was to die for.

    • looks like a solid shop!
    • You know, while I was getting tattoed we spoke about the full sleeve, since I've started with the idea to get it done (not in a short amount of time because due work my week is full) and he just said something about the druid girl. But we haven't any conversation about it anymore so it was kinda a flash instead of something wanted.  Then here COVID-19 came and we used to stay in lockdown per 2 months and just now tattoo studios opened (like one/2months ago) and I have to find a window of time where I can contact him. So basically nothing has started yet :)      This is what actually happened with the wolf. I went him saying "I want the face of a wolf here" and he did all the rest, surprising me with that moon etc so I was kinda surprised with the final effect because it wasn't what I exceptecd but It was what I wanted without even telling him the background.  It sounds weird but I gave him "free hands" and imho the result is stunning. So basically I would find the main subject (woman) and the background which suits the wolf (forest etc.). So I wanted to research something in terms of what I have in mind. But still, I will contact him for sure as long as we both have time to spare, finding what I like the most/suit the best  
    • He's a good artist... your concepts are all in the same vein... except the dryad girl which is a different direction. They aren't anything like what he was suggesting though. These also aren't what I'd think of initially when thinking of woman portraits... they are more surreal than what people commonly ask for.  Makes me wonder if you showed them to him yet? I'd give them to the artist, tell them a few things that you like and things you don't like about them... and put down a deposit so that he can start drawing.
