I think Kate's right. Chinese mushrooms are very popular in Singapore. The
top quality ones are really expensive here - and really flavourful as well.
My mother loves those and she uses them in her mixed vegies stir fries and
her stews. Soak them in water for a couple of hours to soften them before
using. I like to eat my mushrooms sliced into thin strips.
