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.
