12 creative sriracha-spiked dishes to try at restaurants in KL and Selangor
Sriracha, the delicious hot sauce popular in Vietnamese and Thai cooking, has become a go-to condiment to raise the heat for a multitude of dishes, both classic and contemporary. Here are 10 sriracha-spiked recipes that are firing up our imaginations at restaurants across the Klang Valley.
1. Pho Bo at An Viet at The Gardens Mall
An Viet’s Pho Bo is the less elaborate northern version, with a clear broth to showcase clean, natural beef flavours, extracted from 12 hours of simmering marrow bones, bolstered with Australian tenderloin and brisket meat, fresh basil, bean sprouts and lime juice. The final secret weapon is sriracha, adding a spicy element to tickle the taste buds.

2. Pork skin nachos with sriracha mayo at Mr Wolf, Petaling Jaya
We love these crunchy pork skin ‘nachos’ embellished with a sweet-savoury, meaty mix of beef bolognese, plus sriracha mayo that’s a terrific counterpoint to the remaining component of cucumber salad.

3. Buttermilk wings at Ampersand by Culinary Rebels, Damansara Uptown
Among Ampersand’s array of inventive chicken wings, one of our top picks is the Buttermilk Wings by G-Man – brined wings with buttermilk, lemon zest and of course, sriracha to elevate this even further.

Chicharrons are offered here, but instead of pork rinds, Wanderlust relies on fried chicken skin. No matter – these are terrific, light but flavoursome, memorably crunchy, perfectly partnered with sriracha aioli.
