Now that I’m cooking again, I’m back to blogging about favourites in the kitchen, one of which is Taho’s Lemon Chilli Sauce (Made in Singapore).
I was introduced to this delicious chilli sauce when a Singaporean mom moved back home and she gave me LOADS OF STUFF including 2 sauces: another was a sambal and this, which we LOVE!
How do I describe this sauce?
It’s something like the dipping sauce you’d get with a nice plate of Hainanese chicken rice, but thicker, richer and more pungent.
As you can see, the label itself shows that the lemon chilli sauce include garlic, ginger, red chillies and what look like limau kasturi (calamansi)? They’re marketing it as “lemon” 🙂 Whatever – it’s INCREDIBLE!

How do you use it?
We’ve used it as a dipping sauce for home-cooked Hainanese chicken rice and also for grilled meats. Yummy! You can try it out if you can get your hands on it.
If you have tasted Nando’s Peri-peri sauces, then you’ll understand that garlicky, lemony, tangy chilli taste that I am talking about >_<
In case you can’t find the lemon chilli sauce, I think that this set of Nando’s peri-peri sauces would be a close second. Makes a nice gift!

This sauce goes well with almost anything – meat, fish or vegetables. Splash, dash, dip or simply cook with it to add flavour and zest to any meal.
