Mushroom Burger: A Fungus Meal

After roaming around Tagaytay City, Fr. RV treated us for snacks at a restaurant called Mushroom Burger. They serve mushroom burgers and at the same time grow mushrooms at their incubated farms situated in the compound. They make use of two species: the oyster and the abalone mushrooms.

Mushroom is the fleshy fruiting body of a fungus that typically sprouts or grows above ground on soil or on its food source such as the banana trunk or wood. The mushrooms usually grow in the wilderness during rainy season upon a strike of a lightning so they say. The standard for mushroom is the button white mushroom but there is a wide variety gilled mushrooms with or without stems.

We ordered mushroom sandwich because it is filled in with pure oyster mushroom and cheese. The price of it was 55 pesos. It tasted perfectly fine. It’s a sure healthy meal especially for health conscious and for vegetarian folks.
