Chinese Chili Oil

What's a good store-bought Chinese Chili Oil? Preferably from T&T.




Currently using the above, not really a fan, dislike the peanuts, doesn't taste that great and it's not spicy enough even with a tablespoonful. What I am looking for is a product that resembles closer to what you would find at a HK cafe/Viet restaurant.

next time you go to a chinese cafe, you should ask them which brand they use.

I would assume that most restaurants would make it themselves.

I use a brand called Chiu Chow Chili Oil. You can find at TNT and its got like a pink label on it. Sorry I'm too lazy to go to my fridge and check the brand =P

It's good though! give it a try

I buy the same brand, but their other sauce.
It's more crushed. No peanuts?

It shouldn't have peanuts and it's more spicy than that pic you showed.

the vietnamese one is called sate sauce. You can make a ton at home and store away.

a lot of the Chinese resturants will sell their homemade stuff. Next time you are at a place just ask and they normally have a jar.

I believe Chiu Chow Chili Oil is only a type of chili oil. I use lee kum kee's chiu chow chili oil

you can find it at TnT. Pretty good, no as good as some restaurants (which make it themselveS) but its satisfactory!
