What hasn’t surprised me is that while on my quest, every single restaurant I found them at A.) served amazing oyster mushrooms , and B.) had a menu that was also amazing. So now I have a theory; any restaurant that sells fried oyster mushrooms is bound to be on point. So far I’ve tested this theory in Dallas, Milwaukee, Reno, Boston, and Sacramento, and to date the theory holds up. If you are ever in one of these cities, please do yourself a favor and find the fried oyster mushrooms.
Milwaukee: Donna Jean – chicken fried oyster mushrooms mushrooms come the size of a chicken thigh and have the perfect melt in your mouth batter that is reminiscent of mamma’s fried chicken. Served with pickle and buffalo wing sauce.
Reno: De Luxe Reno – home of the fried oyster mushroom po’boy, this place inspires me so much when in the kitchen. It’s served on vegan French bread, with kimchi, homemade pickle, and a cashew cream slaw. This is a must try.
San Diego: Odd Duck – A refreshing spin on fried oyster mushrooms, fried crush and light and served in a shallow green curry bath that brought the flavors together nicely. Don’t pass up on this spot if you are in San Diego.
