The only dish that is still on menu since we reopened. Probably my favorite dish to prepare. The #woodear is marinated in wild herbs like cleavers and mint. We use whatever is available depending on the season. In winter we use dried herbs and summer fresh herbs. We then add a little white soy to them.
