I read the BBC article on this yesterday.

Irwindale is a heavily industrial community. And this is the first harvesting season that this plant has been in operation for Sriracha. This will be a minor issue that should be resolved rather quickly. The lawsuit, IMO is just another frivolous money grab by attorneys since lives are not at risk here.

I'm big on hot sauce, and I think Sriracha is terrible. Sorry, Andy. I grew up eating my grandmother's homemade hot sauce, and I'd rather have that any day.

Having said that, there is a Chinese restaurant in Toronto that has the best hot sauce I've ever tasted. Every time I go there, I want to steal the container. I'm going to ask for a jar next time.

These days it's Valentina for me, which is really tasty. I never really got into the Sriracha fad.

I don't think anyone would suggest Sriracha is the BEST hot sauce around. (I'm personally a fan of our local Aardvark sauce - it's awesome!)

What Sriracha is is ubiquitous. That makes it a handy fallback - it's just plain everywhere, so if nothing better is on hand, at least you can use Sriracha.

Is there a particular Aardvark flavor you prefer? I just checked out the website and am ready to make an order. Probably the t-shirt too.

6 bottles should last me a bit and I'm leaning toward a sampler.

Yes, I can agree with that. If Sriracha is on the table, I'll certainly squirt some on whatever I'm eating.

Thanks for the Aardvark tip. I'll have to order some.

Franks used to be my go-to sauce until I became a bit older and burned out 95% of my taste buds.

I now need an extra "kick" to taste anything.

Not necessarily. You can become acclimated to capsaicin and thus require more of it to feel any pain. This tolerance can also fade. I heard a radio interview with an Indian who was going to school in the US and went back home on holiday. She made his favorite curry and when he ate it complained it was too hot.

She wondered what we were doing to her son.

The answer:



Same ingredient list, except that sugar, which is listed second on regular squeezy bottle Sriracha, is absent from the delicious paste

This stuff, along with whole dried red peppers, elevated my cooking to a higher plateau of spiciness

Yeah, Tuong ot Toi sauce is good. You should also try Sambel Olek, for things that need the same heat without the garlic...

I noticed that stuff since they have a roughly 6-liter jar of it next to the other Huy Fong sauces at the Asian grocery.

However, I don't think my worldview encompasses "things that don't need garlic" whistle

In central Florida, we have a wonderful chain restaurant called Tijuana Flats. They are a basic order at the counter, grab a table and eat your burrito place, but one thing truly elevates them. The hot sauce bar. Fill up your own little containers of a wide variety of hot sauces from mild to it will hurt you (twice). They also have their own line of sauces, the "Slap my ass can call me Sally" line. Finally, they are one of the largest hot sauce distributors in the south east, you can get their sauces but also a ton of other companies.

Now that you mention it, I think I've only ever actually HAD their habanero sauce. And it's sooooooooo yummy....
