Is this the thread where I claim I hated something "hipster" before it was cool to hate it without any sense of irony whatsoever?
 
2014-02-14 01:09:20 PM  
Sure there are. They are just in the brining process, they will be mechanically separated and pureed later.

No, Oompa Loompas are from Malaysia, from Kuala Oompur Lumpur.

The asian "hot sauce" in a squirt bottle what has a rooster logo.

I like it ok, but I prefer more traditional hotsauce like tabasco or franks red hot

They're all 'traditional' -- just different traditions.  And since they're made with different ingredients in different processes, they end up tasting different and going better/worse with different foods.  Sriracha has a lot of garlic in it.  That goes well with some things, but not everything.

I'm not a huge fan of siracha unless I'm having pad thai or pho but I think both Franks and Tobasco have way too much vinegar taste to them and not enough heat.

I don't get how hipsters got associated with Sriracha. I've had the Rooster bottle around since the 1980s. It's been on the table in Chinese and Thai restaurants for decades. So some douchebags think it's cool long after it's popular? Go shove a ghost pepper up your ass, Hipsters.

Is it a left coast/southwest thing? Because I've never seen it in store or heard anyone talking about it over here in NC. But then the South does lag behind the rest of the country by 10 years or so.

You can claim that if you want, but we won't believe you.

But I really have liked sriracha since I first discovered it in 1993.

a) If your product is so damned good, why would you put an acidic pH item in a plastic container and expect it to taste good?
b) some of us have a good, trained "nose" and know what that can do to adulterate a flavor
c) and we aren't fooled by your hipster logic that that crap tastes good.

I get 89 cent bottles of Mexican hot sauce in various strengths at my local discount store that are far superior if only because they are packaged in a glass bottle.
It's like nuking chili in a plastic bowl, it's going to leave that bowl red, and what went into that bowl, well, traded off for some of that plastic going into your chili.

I think hipsters were responsible for Peak Sriracha, in which the sauce was put onto and into every conceivable thing, flavor sense be damned.

Your plastic containers are not made out of PET and a stain does not mean that plastic has leeched into your food.

My gf and I both love hot sauces and Sriracha is always in our fridge along with at least a few other brands.  We were recently on vacation in New Orleans, however, (my first time there) and I "discovered" Crystal Hot Sauce which is my new go-to sauce on most foods.
 
2014-02-14 01:45:28 PM  
Add me to the Frank's fans. It gives you the flavor of a bell pepper with just enough heat.

Either way. If it comes in plastic, I ain't eating it.
It smells funny.

And Sriracha tastes like garbage.
Like real garbage from a pail.

Cholula in a glass bottle is good.

It's definitely not the hottest hot sauce, but it's up there.
 
2014-02-14 01:51:30 PM  
I like it for only two reasons. 1) it's thick enough to stay in when you fill the submerged end of your buddy's straw and drop it in his coke when he's not looking and 2) I get to call it "crazy cock sauce" due to the logo.

When Subway started offering it, sriracha was "over".

Now I know how hipsters feel.

Sriracha's been around forever, but it's suddenly become the IN thing for people to fixate on.

I actually never use the stuff, as it's the equivalent of Hunts ketchup in the pepper sauce space. There are better options.

It's not even really "up there". Sriracha is pretty damn weak as far as hot sauces go. It is quite delicious on certain foods though.

It's not my favorite, I prefer the flavor of habanero sauces for most things, but those can be a little too hot at times.
 
2014-02-14 02:10:50 PM  
So, it's basic hot sauce with more garlic and sugar?  I think you people are suckers for advertising/buzz.

Gotta try the kikkoman version next, then head dow to the City and hit up the asian groceries for other brands.  I like Huy Fong, but.......there's better out there.
I also love fish sauce. It's amazing how something that smells sooo bad makes everything taste so good.
