chilisauceresized.jpgThere is a new condiment movement sweeping the city. OK, maybe not. But Gothamist and apparently 10 million other addicts around the world are buying bottles of this red chili, garlic Thai sauce to put on sandwiches, eggs, noodles, sauces and virtually any place you can use a little burst of spicy flavor.

This sauce is made by a company many simply call "The Rooster", also famous for their Thai Sriracha sauce. The Shriracha is a very similar, but a slightly sweeter, pureed version of this standard chili garlic sauce.

Any other "Rooster" fans out there?

Sriracha and Red Chili Garlic Sauce, made by Huy Fong Foods, costs about $3 a bottle at Asian grocery stores and Citarella.
