Five-Spice Shrimp & Squid


Our most popular new appetizer! This delicious combination of seafood is flavored with the famous 5-spice powder. The light coating, combined with flash-frying, ensures that the squid & shrimp stay tender & moist. Some of our guests tried squid for the first time really enjoyed it.
