    Place out the road in Sandyford:

    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.

    I have as I remember thinking "what the fúck sort of name is XO sauce" totally unaware of what it was.

    Didn't make much of an impression on me from memory, but then such is Chinese food. It fills a hole but you are not going to eat it two nights in a row.

    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.
