Thai Sriracha Sauce, Brands We Offer

Originally developed in the city of Sriracha on Thailand's eastern seaboard, sriracha sauce is a hot, spicy dipping sauce common throughout Thailand. There are various brands offering different levels of heat, but they're generally similar. In recent years a new "sriracha sauce" is produced in the United States with great popularity. We've carefully selected imported brands to offer in our shop, and we can offer the American version. Please see comparison of the different sauces below, and choose what's best for you.

Shark brand is made in the Sriracha region of Thailand. It's the real thing--what the Thai people eat--and it's all natural without preservatives or artificial colors. Shark brand has a good mix of chile heat, and sugar/garlic/vinegar overtones to make it tangy and a bit sweet.

NEW: Shark Sriracha Featured in April 2013 GQ Magazine "Secret Weapon That Chefs Can't Live Without".

Packed in a nice glass bottle. Shark is far superior to the plastic bottle stuff which includes preservatives and has an unnatural heavy pepper taste.

We now have medium flavor (in a giant bottle), in addition to "Strong" which is what we've offered for years.

Medium flavor has the taste of Thai chiles but low heat. Strong offers bold chile heat, somewhat like tabasco, but tangy and a bit sweet too. Use plenty of it. The large glass bottle is a generous amount. All Natural. Ingredients: chile, water, sugar, garlic, salt, vinegar. Product of Thailand.

$4.89, Strong flavor, 7 oz glass bottle
$9.89, Medium flavor, 25 oz glass bottle
NEW: Sriraja Panich brand

We just received a new shipment of this sriracha sauce from Thailand. It's sijmilar to the popular Shark brand (above) that we've offered for years.

Sriraja Panich brand is packed in a nice glass bottle. It's made by the same company that makes Golden Mountain Sauce. It's probably the most common sriracha in Thailand, used far and wide throughout the country and well-known by all.

Flavor is very rich, spicy, slightly fruity, just right for a sriracha. We know you will love it.

Far superior to the plastic bottle stuff which includes preservatives and has an unnatural heavy pepper taste.

Ingredients: chile, sugar, garlic, water, salt.

No Preservatives. No Artificial Coloring. No MSG.

Product of Thailand.

$4.89, 8.8 oz glass bottle, Sriraja Panich
Huy Fong brand. Made in the United States, this is the brand which has become popular and served all over the country. This sauce is very strong and heavy to chile flavor, a bit like eating a high-heat raw chile pepper. Despite the popularity of this brand, it's not what a Thai person might think is sriracha sauce. The variety of chile used gives the flavor a very deep, hot pepper taste. The flavor is overwhelming in our opinion and might take away the flavor of any accompanying food. If you want very high heat then this is the choice for you. Packed in a plastic squeeze bottle. Ingredients: chile, sugar, garlic, salt, distilled vinegar, potassium sorbate and sodium bisulfite as preservatives, and xanthan gum.
Huy Fong brand, 17 oz plastic bottle, $4.29

NEW: Very Spicy Birdseye Pepper Sauce
This fantastic hot sauce comes from the Philippines. Mama Sitas has a 75 year history producing world-class sauces. A bright, powerful, fresh red chile heat that is spicier than Thai sriracha sauce and our fresh red chile sauce. We love this hot sauce for many reasons, especially the really strong flavor. Chile pepper lovers will enjoy putting just a few drops on any dish. Each bottle is individually boxed and the story about the legendary labuyo (birdseye) chiles is told on the box. It says:

"In 1521, the famous explorer Ferdinand Magellan sailed thousands of leagues seeking the legendary spice islands. While the sun-drenched shores of the Philippines were to be his last destination, native spices there were bold and bountiful. There, the Bird's Eye Red Pepper, a small yet robust capsicum, was coveted for its pointed yet delicate heat. Magellan's hosts called the pepper "labuyo".

"Centuries have passed since Magellan's journey, yet pepper farmers at the foot of the fiery Mayan Volcano still persist on legend, perfecting the combination of fierce sunlight, fertile soil, and meticulous care to cultivate labuyo to perfection."

"Down south where labuyo grows wild in the valleys, plains and rainforest fringes, Mama Sitas has planted it's own pepper farm and harvests labuyo at it's prime. Apart from the added vinegar and salt, Labuyo bird's eye red hot peppers reach your table in it's purest form."

Packed in a 2 oz glass bottle. All natural, no preservatives. Ingredients: hot peppers, cane vinegar, salt. Product of Philippines.

Make Your Own Thai Sriracha Sauce

Here we demonstrate how to use red Thai chiles to make your own delicious, natural sriracha sauce.

This is a lot of fun to make, because you can adjust the flavors at the end to suit your preference. Make a small batch and share it with others, take it to summer barbecue, use it in your own kitchen on anything from eggs to stir fry, soups, etc.

The hot sauce starts out very, very hot, so be careful. If you prefer a milder sauce, use 50% red bell peppers, jalapeno, or a more mild fresh pepper.
