Matsutake in Calgary

Can anyone tell me what the price of a plate of matsutake like this would cost in the restaurant? I was working last night and I saw these being plated up and took a pic. I know they vary depending on the quality, that much I know. Thanks!

  1. Hi JingJong. As far as I know there aren't any restaurants in Calgary that offer a full plate of matsutake mushrooms, but if there was I bet it would be quite expensive.

      I found out what they cost. The plate in the pic is $50. And you can get them when they are in season from Sushi Bar Zipang.

        If you can find them at a grocery store, a similar amount of mushrooms would cost approximately $10-12 (here in Vancouver, anyway...probably similar pricing in Calgary). I bought some to grill this past weekend.
