    Can confirm, grew up in Asian household. I thought this was the norm to eating eggs and then discovering it was out of the ordinary in western cultures.

    Must be the maggi soy sauce :D

    Sounds like it would be too salty for my taste.

    Just a light sprinkle is all you need.

    I only learnt this after I was 'adopted' by an Asian family.

    I think soy sauce on plain eggs would be nice, it's nice on asian dishes with egg in, like noodles or fried rice or whatever. It's a bit along the lines of worcestershire sauce.

    Just a few drops is enough. And its surprisingly very good/addictive. Sriracha is amazing with an omelette.

    I'm a sauce addict. I can't walk through the sauce isle without picking something up. My wife thinks I have a problem, she's right, as usual. My staples are Holbrooks Worcester, Sriracha, Heinz Tomato, HP, Pearl River Bridge dark soy, Lee Kum Kee Hoi Sin and SBR BBQ. There's always a shit load of other varieties in the fridge and pantry and I also make my own. Yep, she's right, I have a sauce problem.

    I don't add sauce most of the time. I cook with them but don't usually add extra to my food. Hence a small bottle of tomato sauce would sit in the pantry for 3 years past it's used by and not be noticed lol, and it's still mostly full. When I have steak, if I can be bothered I will make myself a creamy prawn sauce to go with it. With whole prawns ofcourse. A surf n turf deal. If I'm lazy I will often just seasoned and cook it gordon ramsay style with butter, garlic and thyme. Or even lazier is just seasoned and buy off the shelf peppercorn with cream sauce from Gravox which I find is pretty good. Otherwise I usually have soy sauce (japanese and chinese), kewpie mayo, etc. for cooking on hand too. Been cooking a bit with mix of miso/mirin/soy marinate last year.

    Another combination I've been doing a lot lately for fried chicken is Kecap Manis and Garlic Aioli. It's a great combination I highly recommend.

    I only just discovered that you can buy Sriracha and Mayo premixed. That's nice for lazy people like me.
    Kewpie is the only mayo that touches my lips these days as well, I don't mind dropping some chipotles in adobo in it and blending.

    So many options really.

    I'm also a huge kewpie mayo fan. I prefer Franks red hot sauce over Tabasco.
    I love that red sauce that you get at yum cha / Chinese restaurants. If I only I knew what it was called. red sauce.JPG

    Koon Yick sauce is their alternative red chilli sauce instead of sriracha in most yumcha restaurants.

    The other red sauce I can think of would just be a sweet and sour sauce no?

    I'll check it out thank you. It's red chilli sauce that I'm thinking of, rather than sweet and sour. I don't know why, but I've never been much of a fan of the famous sriracha sauce.
