I have the local news on, but I’m not watching it. They just had a cooking segment that mentioned Sriracha sauce. (I call it “chicken sauce” because it has a rooster on the bottle, and other people call it “rooster sauce” for the same reason.) The person on the segment said, “… a little Srirachi [sic], which is a Thai hot sauce.”
Hm. Sriracha is ubiquitous in Vietnamese restarants. The banner above the rooster is in Vietnamese. I also see it sometimes in Chinese restaurants. The lower banner is in Chinese. It’s made by Huy Fong, which definitely sounds Chinese. (Apparently, Huy Fong was the name of the ship that brought the founder to the U.S.) I don’t see any Thai writing on the bottle.
So it doesn’t really appear to be Thai. The cook on TV seems to have mis-spoke. Is Sriracha sauce of Chinese origin, or Vietnamese?
(FWIW, Sriracha sauce is made in Southern California.)
