An unmistakable label. Its simple design will bring a smile to your face once you know the goodness that is contained inside.
A pleasant orange red blend. The sauce has a slight thickness to it. Depending on how much you shake, you can adjust it to your liking.
A very sharp smell. Very garlicky with a strong vinegar signature.
Outstanding taste. This sauce goes well with anything. Many sauces may make that claim but Sriracha truly delivers. A unique taste, with a fantastic garlic flavor.
It doesn't pack much of a punch at all. It is a very mellow heat, that doesn't overwhelm or beat up on the flavor of your food.
One of my Regulars. This one goes with it all. Never fear using it on any of your favorite dishes. When recommending a sauce to anyone who doesn't have much experience or a weak tongue, you cant go wrong here. A must have for all hot sauce fans.
Easily identifiable around the world. Use this sauce in Paris Frsnce or Paris Texas A classic.
Color nice red consistency varies to shakability Texture more than acceptable
Strong. flavorful pungent More vinegary than many similar sauces
The heat predominates. Great to punch up Pho, which is where I found this sauce eons ago. Lingers just long enough ....essentially a garnish sauce vs a cooking sauce
The burn is serious. Be advised to use sparingly and only as a garnish.
If you know to use as a garnish sauce, with delicately or less seasoned Asian cooking, this is the ultimate hot sauce for these dishes. Works really well with Vietnamese food.others I have not tried enough to cast an opinion.
