ISO fiddlehead ferns in Oakland / EB


It’s that time of year… and I’m attempting to seek out all the different ways fiddlehead ferns can be served in restaurants. Please let me know if you spot it!



In a dish that exudes spring, Jew blends fava beans with fiddlehead ferns and cabbage, then gives them a warming glow with doubanjiang, a chile sauce he also makes with fava beans ($19).


Sad to miss this!

Part of the menu includes a fiddlehead fern ohitashi and freshly shaved katsuoboshi.
