Best Hot Sauces To Try In KL

After watching Complex’s Hot Ones, my boyfriend and I were consumed with challenging our taste buds and stomach linings with the best kinds of hot sauces the world (or more like grocery store) can offer. So, what is a hot sauce? It’s basically a spicy condiment that helps elevate the taste of your food. Whatever your poison may be, here’s a nice selection of sauces you have to try in Kuala Lumpur.

*Disclaimer: I do the spicyyyy, so if you can’t, best to up the heat ratings based on mine!

 

1. Chicken Rice Chilli

You know it's gonna be good when the chilli is from the garden… #chickenricechilli

Heat:

1/5.

What’s in it:

Red chillies, garlic, ginger, lime juice, caster sugar, oil.

What to eat it with:

TBH, I can pretty much eat this sauce with anything, but it’s great with chicken rice (obvs), duck rice, any char siew or siew yok rice, or even just plain chicken rice rice with some cucumbers for a vegetarian option!

 

 

2. Store Bought Salsa

Heat:

Depending on whether you get “mild” or “spicy”, the sauce ranges between a 0.5/5 – 2/5.

What’s in it:

Tomatoes, coriander, onions, garlic, jalapeno/green chillies, lime juice, extra virgin olive oil.

What to eat with it:

Tostada chips! But again, you can experiment with whatever kind of food you find it complimenting best. I’ve topped off baked white fish, or even chicken with it before. Add a side of rice and beans, and you’re set for a wholesome dinner.

3. Sambal Belacan

Heat:

4/5.

What’s in it:

Red and green chillies whole, belacan (shrimp paste), limau parut, garlic.

What to eat it with:

Hoooo mommmaa! This was like the best thing in the world for me ’til I developed a nasty allergy for prawns. This golden beauty of a sauce can be eaten with noodles (dried or soupy), rice, porridge even, and used as a dipping sauce for things like fried chicken or ulam. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, try spreading some over toast and topping it with jam. Yum level 3,782,091 – no jokes!

 

4. Tabasco

Heat:

3/5.

What’s in it:

Fully aged red peppers, distilled vinegar, salt.

What to eat it with:

PIJJA! You can’t go wrong with pizza topped off with some Tabasco. What I like to do is drench the face of the pizza with a “fair” amount of it, and fold it in half (crust tip to tip) so the sauces don’t get a chance to drip off, before eating it. You can also mix a few dabs in your olio pasta for that extra bite.

 

5. Sriracha

Heat:

3/5.

What’s in it:

Red chillies, sugar, salt, garlic, distilled vinegar, potassium sorbate, sodium bisulfite, xanthum gum.

What to eat it with:

After being introduced to this, I never looked back at Tabasco again. This sauce is perfect to top off pizzas, spread onto your sandwiches, mixed with your fried rice or noodles, or even used as a marinade for meat on its own. It can even be used as a dipping sauce for raw veggies, nuggets, and of course… FRENCH FRIES. I sometimes dip my burgers in it too… hehe.

Heat:

3/5.

What’s in it:

Fermented durian, chillies, oil.

What to eat it with:

Honestly, I only ever eat durian when I have the mood (which is one in a blue moon), and I’ve never tried this before. But, I have tried tempoyak, and it really is the bomb diggity! My colleague, Fika, loves this, and recommends to eat this good stuff with rice.

 

8. Kicap Cili Padi

Heat:

4/5.

What’s in it:

Soy sauce, raw red chillies whole.

What to eat it with:

EVERYTHING. OMG. What I like to do, is grab the fresh chillies, add raw garlic, drench that in soy sauce, and mash the chillies in just a tad bit. Let it sit for a few minutes, so by the time your food arrives, the soy sauce has all that spicy goodness infused in it!
