Fungi (mushroom) Pizza at Otto

Wingman | Mar 20, 2006 08:57 AM

My gf and I went to Otto, one of our favorite places this past saturday. As usual, the wine, cheese and meats were all top notch, but at the recomendation of a bartender we ordered the Fungi pizza. This was the single worst food I have ever had in my life. When it came to the table, I asked my gf, what the hell is that smell (it was the pizza), thinking ok it smells bad but I've had baby bees, this can't be that bad I take a bite. My god it was wretched, I felt like I was eating a baby cousins diaper! Has anyone else had this experience or did we just get bad mushrooms? (if that's the case perhaps I should have finished the pie).

Service was great though, we sent the pie back and the waiter was happy to provide us with a different pie free of charge.
