    Not for nothing is Huy Fong Sriracha Hot Sauce the official hot sauce of the Chicago Boyz blog.

    UPDATE: Sriracha, the movie.

      Naturally, he is being driven out of Los Angeles by complaints about the smell. Who needs jobs ?

    2. Jonathan Says:

      Didn’t bad publicity embarrass the city into reaching an accommodation with him?

    3. Dan from Madison Says:

      I heard that a compromise was reached. I love this stuff, especially on pasta.

      That appears to be the case

      Huy Fong relocates to the Texas Republic. I once lived near a paper mill. That was tough sledding as they say, but the residents learned to live with it. It was the only employer in town. Always a bottle of the stuff in this house.

      I used to live near a Nabisco plant–like having cookies in the oven all the time, amazing. On the other hand, I once attended a school that was near a nasty factory whose nature I never determined. A horrible smell. I sympathize with nearby residents if a factory really can’t get its smell under control, but we Texans nevertheless welcome the Sriracha factory.

      We have half a dozen or so standard condiments out on the counter near the stove: olive oil, vinegar, fish sauce, and so on–and always a bottle of sriracha.

      I used to work in an industrial park which was developed as a real estate venture by McCormick spice company and is where they have their headquarters. You never knew, day to day, how the air was going to smell since it depended on what McCormick was processing. Sometimes cinnamon, sometimes pepper, sometimes artificial butter flavoring (the worst) or cardamon or nutmeg. It was usually really nice. I’ve also been around some chemical plants that smelled absolutely vile. I feel for anyone who has to live around that sort of thing.

      How could I forget fish sauce.

      In Miami there’s a fancy residential island a few hundred yards from a sewage treatment plant. The prevailing winds are away from the island, but sometimes the wind direction shifts. It’s just another cost of living there.

      The baking odor, which is so pleasant, has been declared an environmental hazard by the EPA . No more pleasant bread smell.

      I worked for the better part of a year in Taft, CA. The smell was often described as that of a meth lab in an oilfield…which it is.

      Try tossing a healthy dose of Habanero sauce into the Sriracha bottle and shake it up.
