Griddle-Cooked Pleurotus Eryngii
-Legaspi Village, Makati, Manila, Philippines-
with the Family
Pleurotus eryngii = king oyster mushroom.
Restaurants should refer more often to items in Linnaean taxonomic nomenclature (see also 8.290 Pleurogrammus aonus), which is either crystal clear to some or completely cryptic to others.
The Griddle-Cooked Pleurotus Eryngii was good. Shredded king oyster mushrooms with sliced pork belly, and chopped chilies in soy sauce and oil. Served in a brazier that both made for a dramatic presentation and kept the dish bubbling throughout the meal. The experience would’ve been better if not for the duplicative pork dish.
With one more visit, this could become an Official Family Favorite Restaurant.
