Flavor: King Crab XO Sauce
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.
