PING GU: Mushroom Fries

PING GU: Mushroom Fries
Ping Gu means Oyster Mushroom in Chinese. Coincidentally, Ping is the nickname of one of the owners of Ping Gu, a food cart business that serves freshly-picked and organic mushrooms coated in a special breading and then deep fried in Canola Oil.
Their mushrooms are freshly picked from Nasugbu, Batangas, we were told.
Here is how they cook the mushroom fries: (1) organic oyster mushrooms are coated with breading; and (2) deep-fried in canola oil using a deep fryer with temperature gauge to ensure that the Crispy Fried Oyster Mushroom by Ping Gu will be crispy. The crunch of the breading gave way to perfectly cooked meaty mushrooms. 
Ping Gu's Crispy Fried Oyster Mushroom is very crispy and delicious. This is a healthy alternative to the oily and salted French Fries.

Ping Gu dips are the following:
  • Garlic Mayo
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Gravy
  • Sweet Chili
Garlic mayo is the dipping sauce of choice and obviously a crowd favorite.
Ping Gu's Crispy Fried Oyster Mushroom owners were even featured in a magazine.
Ping Gu is owned by Jewel and Ping Joven. Jewel told us that they got the idea from her sister-in-law when she fried mushroom and they find it very delicious. They both love the fried mushroom.  Accordingly, husband-and-wife team decided to put up the business.
Jewel Joven and her husband Ping are very proud of their creation and even told us that everyday some of her clients came all the way from Quezon City just to buy her mushroom fries.
