A Collection of Southeast Asian Hot Sauces
This was a collection of local Southeast Asian hot sauces that we've been given to try. The green one on the left was the most interesting for me, as I typically think of Mexican salsa verde when I see a green sauce. And yet this green one, being from Southeast Asia, was sweet. It was garlicky too; if Huy Fong Foods hypothetically did a green variant of its sriracha sauce, I'd imagine that it might taste similar to this.
The other two, on the other hand, were red, with the sambal terasi in the middle carrying a bit of earthy stank to it. It had a lot of flavors going on at the same time, and immediately reminded me of what I might get with a plate of Indonesian ayam penyet. The Lingham's on the right from Malaysia was indeed extra hot as the label proclaims, making it fun to eat too, even if it - like the others - was sweet.
