No. 72: Mushroom in Tin Foil at Marumi Sushi

The first time we went to Marumi Sushi, our attention was immediately drawn to the small plates and side dishes portion of the menu. Scanning for something different to try, we saw "Mushroom in Tin Foil". Rather nondescript, this could be a number of things. How is it prepared? Is it just one giant mushroom? We decided to take a gamble that would become an addiction!

Peeling back the neatly folded tinfoil, steam escapes and we breathe in the scent of a variety of mushrooms. Enoki, white button, shiitake, portabella, and chanterelle mushrooms sit in a golden pool of butter sauce. The sauce has hints of citrus and sake, brightening up the earthy, meaty mushrooms. 

The portion is just right, and would even make a good lunch accompanied with some of Marumi's crispy bok choy.
