Exclamation Sriracha Chili Sauce in Australia?



Does anyone know where I can source a bottle of this stuff from? I love chili and all things burning but they use this alot in recipes I have from another forum. I've been trying to find a place in Australia to get it but my local asian store doesn't have it, and I don't really want to pay $15 to have a bottle delivered from Amazon.

Any ideas? Also has anyone actually had this sauce? What did you think?

yeah thats a fairly common chilli sauce down here in melb. I'm sure there's an asian grocer in your area that would have it in stock.

Holy crap. SO IT IS HERE!!!

Okay I forgot I live in a shit hole and when I said my local asian store I mean a store the size of a phone box that sells Mi Goreng and overseas phone cards

I will try one in the city and sweet sriracha sauce will be mine!

Excellent. Have you guys had it before? Is it hot or just nice and bitey?

yep pretty much, perhaps not the same brand though. However Srichana is by the far the best brand that u could use.

Sriracha Chilli is my favourite. Is there an qld equivalent of the cabramatta/fairfield area in nsw? Huge asian migrant enclave in the suburbs with supermarkets stocking authentic ingredients?

There's a heap of Asian Supermarkets in the Valley that have them and a really good one in West End.
