Chinese Buffet Tempura Mushroom Help
My local Chinese buffet makes the most amazing tempura fried mushrooms. They are sprinkled with some kind of salty-spicy reddish brown powder. I originally thought it might have been a type of chili powder, but it really isn't overwhelmingly spicy.
I know its a long shot, but anyone have any idea what it could be?
