MIS - Morel Mushroom Dish @ Father's Office

This is a "May I Suggest" post...

I was very pleasantly surprised by the morel mushroom appetizer on deck at Father's Office Culver City right now. It's served in a bowl with a healthy amount of slightly above average morels, some fiddlehead fern, some bacon, lima beans (I think) and something called a "one-hour egg."

I thought it was delicious and the only thing missing was a slice of bread to soak up the morel broth at the bottom. Maybe not for everyone, but I thought it was great paired with a Rogue Hazelnut Brown.

  1. Ohhhh I need to run back over there--again! That sounds really good to me! Thanks for letting us know. But what's fiddlehead fern? Are they putting house plants in dishes now? :)

    1. A Fiddlehead Fern is a very young, edible fern that when in it's curled up state, resembles the head of a fiddle

      1. Oooh that sounds lovely. Too bad FO doesn't serve good bread with their cheese plates and the aforementioned appetizer. It often tastes lifeless!

          Yeah, the bread is a real afterthought there and I ALWAYS run out of bread before I run out of cheese. And, btw, do they really have to put two of the burger cheeses on the damn cheese plate? 90% of the people end up eating the gruyere and blue twice in a two course meal!

          Anyway, morels = yum. :)

        2. It sounds a lot better than the tiny plate of morels for which I paid Cut in Las Vegas $20 not long ago.
