Fresh Shitakes in Chinatown

  • m

Since Thanksgiving I've noticed that several of the green grocers in SF Chinatown have been selling beautiful plump fresh shitake mushrooms for $1.50 to $2.00 per pound. These are the same as the supers are selling for $8 to $10, and may in fact be fresher due to higher turnover. Winter is the best season for these, so enjoy them while the quality is best and the price is low.
