LOS ANGELES, 14 JUNE 2011 — The World’s Most Expensive AnQi Pho, a Vietnamese gastronomic specialty,  was auctioned off last month for $5,800 at the live auction at The Bash Benefactor Dinner in Los Angeles. The net proceeds from the celebrity-studded evening all went to The Bash Foundation to support the Teen Impact/Dialysis Center of Children’s Hospitals. Since then, the luxury dish has been added to the permanent menus of all three House of An restaurants for $5,000 a serving with the same charitable contribution to The Bash Foundation. 

Created by Southern California's House of An, the extravagant dish is made of blue lobster ‘noodles’, A5 wagyu beef (instead of the usual sirloin or brisket), white alba truffles, poached foie gras in a flavored stock and personally grown bean sprouts. A molecular gastronomy technique is used to make the rice noodles out of an excessively rare and expensive blue lobster meat. The AnQi Pho is served in a blue fluted plain soup dish and dinner plate by Royal Copenhagen.

Available at the following House of An restaurants, the luxury AnQi Pho requires a 7-day notice.
