The world’s most expensive pho has been purchased by award-winning chef Aldo Zilli to raise money for Action Against Hunger.
Vietnamese hotspot Pho & Bun took two months to prepare the Super Pho, which was auctioned for a staggering £1,240.
Owner Andy Le and head chef Graeme Hibbs created the pho out of beef stock and it uses a whole leg of A5 grade Kobe beef which is retail priced around £600 per kg – the most expensive on the market using two different cuts of beef to make tender beef and rare beef.
And we’re talking extremely rare. The Wagyu cattle are carefully monitored, and even receive regular massages to maintain their muscle tone.
Graeme used only the finest ingredients including white truffle, fresh hand cut pho noodles, and Tam Duc Fish Sauce – the most sought after fish sauce in Vietnam.
Aldo’s Super Pho will be accompanied by oyster and oscietra summer rolls and Canadian crab, lobster and free range black pork spring rolls.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be supporting Action Against Hunger, we’ve raised a fantastic amount for a great cause,” says chef Aldo Zilli.
“I’m a huge fan of Pho & Bun, and of the charity, so when I heard what Andy and Graeme were doing with the Super Pho I just had to bid for it!”
