Stir-Fried Japanese Hanabira Mushrooms with Prawns ( はなびら茸とエビの炒め )

linkedin stir fried japanese hanabira mushrooms with prawns
Known as “ Kinoko “ ( キノコ ), there are many types of Japanese Mushrooms and those commonly seen in the supermarkets are Shitake ( 椎茸 ), Maitake ( 舞茸 ), Eryngii King Oyster ( エリンギ ), Shimeji ( 湿地茸 ) and Enoki ( エノキ ).

tokyo midtown gourmet supermarket hanabira take mushrooms
I am a huge fan of mushrooms, and I found an interesting species of mushroom called Hanabira-Take ( はなびら茸 ) during one of my fine dining adventures at Hama Steak House in Tokyo. Easily mistaken for Snow Fungus, the texture of the Hanabira Mushroom is much thicker and definitely tastes mushroomy. It was so delicious that I went in search for it in Tokyo, and found it at a gourmet supermarket in Tokyo Midtown. It was selling at ¥ 266 ( aprox SGD 3.20 ). I was ecstatic and determined to buy back and experiment with it, and so glad I did cause it is selling at double the price in Singapore.

For those residing in Singapore, you can also find the Hanabira Mushrooms in Isetan supermarket but at a dearer price of SGD 7.90. So I would suggest buying in Japan if you are going there for a holiday.
