What are the 3 treasures in this dish?  They are dried mushrooms, wood ear fungus and cloud ear fungus.
Verdict - very aromatic, fragrant and tasty dish.  Looks dark but it is a nice dish that goes well with white rice.

Hi Jess, all the 3 black ingredients were so tasty after braising in the sauce. The gravy is good spread over rice.
