  1. Black fungus is my favourite. I like them in soups, salads and stirfries!

  2. I always wonder how long cooked fungus can be kept/stored in the fridge. Scared 臭酸. Not so sure but the black fungus in chap chye seems to turn a little sour after a few days in the fridge. Or am I wrong?

    I am also eyeing at those 五香rolls alongside your grain bowl ;p
