King crab XO sauce flavor

King Crab XO Sauce – Thailand

Flavor: King Crab XO Sauce

Country: Thailand

When Seen: May 2021

In a Bite: Like Chinese stir fry, with a tiny bit of heat and scent of squid (not crab)

In a Haiku: High-end on the cheap. Transport yourself to Hong Kong. Squid or crab, who cares?

Origin Story: From its origins in high-end dining in Hong Kong, XO sauce soon became commonplace in Cantonese cuisine on its way to international notoriety. This flavor pays homage to its luxurious beginnings with a street food twist: a stir fried king crab lathered in XO sauce.
