Cook pasta per package instructions (just until al dente). Reserve about 1/2 cup of pasta water. Drain pasta, transfer to a bowl, and toss with some olive oil. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, heat olive oil & butter over medium heat.
When the butter begins to bubble, add in the garlic and cook until fragrant – about one minute.
Add in the shiitake mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes. Then add in the shimeiji mushrooms and continue to cook until caramelized – another 3-4 minutes.
Add in the sake, and cook for another minute. Add in the cooked pasta along with 1/4 cup of pasta water.
Season with soy sauce and mirin, toss pasta to coat well. If you find the pasta a little dry, you can add in one or two more tablespoons of pasta water.
Dish out into individual plates. Top with scallion
