X.O Sprouts

08 November 2020

X.O Sprouts


This dish was created as a side dish, with a slightly different take on the classic ‘sprouts ‘n’ bacon’ we are so used to seeing. The scallops and shrimps add a more premium feel to the dish. With the Asian influence fitting with the Pan-Asian scene so popular today.
