L.A.-made Red Rooster isn't the only sriracha – and it isn't the best. Those are made in Thailand, where sriracha was born and where the hot Thai sun produces sweeter chilies. Try Shark Sriracha, a Thai brand free of chemical additives and the favorite sriracha of chef Andy Ricker, America's top expert in Thai cuisine. Though it's somewhat thinner than other brands, Shark features an addictively fresh aroma evoking fresh chilies (ah, that Thai sun) and has a gift for turning simple foods such as grilled chicken into something complex.
