    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?

    some coles stock it now to, though only the hot+sweet not the sweet chilli which is way better.

    Hey scon, speaking of the valley, have you been to Chimmi burger yet since you've moved up here? If not I highly recommend you do, better yet go for lunch during the week and I'll bring a posse from work.

    Also Thai Wii Rat ( sp? ) is good, as is Silver Charm Thai. The Vietnemese is also good, and of course king of kings for some yum cha. All in the valley/china town area.

    Hm, Chimmi burger eh? I could definitely be up for that! I'm down on Eagle Street at the moment but we're moving up to the Valley at the end of April/beginning of May - not that going up to the Valley is too far to go for a decent burger! I'm definitely looking forward to eating my way through the place, not too much awesome food down this area of the city, although AJ's Vietnamese Noodle house and the Satay Club on Charlotte street are literally opposite from where I live.

    Edit: ahaha... the chimiburger sounds crazy!

    THE CHIMIBURGER
    Based on the legendary deep fried burrito, our burger is egg dipped, crumbed and flash fried for a golden experience. This artery-hardening baby has a double serve of prime beef patties, lashings of bacon, a big chuck a cheese, egg, tomato, red onion, our own signature relish and a huge wad of aioli.

    I don't know if i could eat that, but I'd order it just to see it!

    lol scon I don't know if we should eat something that has Aioli described as a "huge wad" :Paranoid:

    I have some time off work coming up, and I have to go into the city for some other stuff so I figured I may as well make a day trip and stock up on Sriracha :D oh and wasabi peas
