Mushroom Month in Los Angeles

Support Provided By

September is National Mushroom Month, and even though this summer was hot and dry, forcing most socal mushrooms into estivation, we're excited to feast on some L.A. funghi. Whether you're chowing down on a bowl of veggie pho equipped with more mushrooms than you know the names of or firing up the grill for portobello burgers, we hope you're ringing in the shroomy fall season in style. Celebrate with one of the unique L.A. mushroom dishes from our gallery, and tell us where you get your favorite fungal foods!
