Known as Rooster sauce in some circles, Sriracha is a profound condiment. The heat is coupled with a richness of the chilies - it never fails to disappoint.

Interestingly, Huy Fong - the producers of the Rooster brand Sriracha have gotten some nice news coverage over the last few years as the American palette heats up so do the imitators and posers on the Sriracha front. There is even a movie about Sriracha.

Again, many grocery stores carry Rooster brand Sriracha - look for it and the distinctive rooster logo. If you do decide to order online, note the quantity when you order. My mom ordered some from Amazon and ended up with three bottles. For me that’s a gift and indeed it was - but for others it may be a shock.
