Vegetarian Delights of NYC: Pickled Mushrooms at Kebeer in Brighton Beach
The pickled 'shrooms at Kebeer are meaty and amazing--without containing any actual meat.
It seem like the Russians will pickle anything. In this case, to spectacular effect. Oyster mushrooms and shiitakes are extensively vinegar-soaked and strewn with fresh dill and sweet onions at Kebeer, a new Russian beer garden under the Q tracks in Brighton Beach. The mushrooms are thereby rendered especially chewy and succulent, providing a good tart smack to the face that only foamy beer can cut. 1003 Brighton Beach Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-934-9005
