    Luóbo Gao - Traditional Chinese turnip cake pieces, pan fried in XO sauce

    XO 酱带子虾 Fried prawns & scallops in XO sauce

    Seeing it on a menu doesn't make you some culinary expert. I bet you've never tasted it.

    Fried chicken from the petrol station, that's the extent of your gustatory exploration.

    Yes, our local takeaway does a variety of XO dishes. They're a bit meh, tbh.

    They also do Noodles Singapore Style that is barely edible due to the intense chilli heat

    :sigh: Do you cook with it, was what I was asking.

    A tablespoon in the broth in which you are poaching your spare ribs, for example, imbues the pork with the most remarkable flavour.

    I rarely cook Chinese food tbh, sc. Pissed up in restaurants or the occasional takeaway.

    I do cook up a nasi goreng every now and again.
    Indonesia, well, it's near China. Well certainly nearer than we are.
