... One of the highlights was that it contained an inner chamber which we had to walk down to via a narrow staircase, which lead to a completely pitch black corridor.

The hostess lit the burners and then plucked the mushrooms off the branch and put them on one of the burners to be grilled. She warned us not to eat the stems!! On the other burner was sukiyaki, a bit like a beef consomme with slices of raw meat and enogi mushrooms, noodles and other bits and pieces. We cooked the meat before we ate ...
