MÓGŪ (Chinese 蘑菇) means mushroom. It is a symbol of good luck, longevity, and health.
It also stands for a traditional painting technique (沒骨畫) where there are no boundaries or solid lines …
much like us.
The wok was invented during the Han dynasty in China over 2000 years ago. The word itself is derived from a Cantonese one which means “cooking pot.”
Chinese food was first brought to the U.S. in 1849 during California’s Gold Rush. It was there that General Tso’s Chicken and fortune cookies were invented. This style of cooking stayed the same for 171 years, unevolved … until now.
Born on Long Island, MÓGŪ is the first modern Chinese kitchen to use smart tech and air-baking techniques instead of frying. Because we are flavor-forward, ingredient-conscious, and freshness-obsessed!
