"Jiao Bai Sun" with XO sauce

"Jiao Bai Sun" or "Kao Pak Sung" is a very interesting type of vegetable and it is an imported seasonal vegetable from china. It looks like bamboo shoots but they are not. I was told that this vegetable grows on water. It has a very unique taste, I would say it taste a mild bitter like petai, really unique.




I have them cut into pieces and pan fried them with XO sauce.... a very unique dish.
