SOME LIKE IT HOT...

We’re obsessed with sriracha, the delicious red drizzle of spice & sweetness, and we like to add a little on top at every meal (hence why it’s on all Busaba tables for your custom heat-adding pleasure).

SOME LIKE IT HOT...

We’re obsessed with sriracha, the delicious red drizzle of spice & sweetness, and we like to add a little on top at every meal (hence why it’s on all Busaba tables for your custom heat-adding pleasure).

Named after the coastal town of Sri Racha in eastern Thailand, we’ve dug up a few interesting facts & tales about one of the world’s most beloved hot sauces.

Number 7: You may be pronouncing it wrong (see-rotch-ah!)

Number 6: The green cap is supposed to make the bottle resemble a red chilli pepper with its stem

Number 5: Apparently, one reason people feel like they can never get enough sriracha isn’t just because it tastes so good. Supposedly when you ingest pepper, capsaicin and dihydrocapsaicin, the elements in a chili pepper that make the pepper spicy, trick your system into thinking you’ve touched something incredibly hot. To cope, your brain releases endorphins, which give your body a natural high to ‘numb the pain’ it thinks you’ve experienced and makes you feel good!

Number 4: More than a ton of sriracha is produced every single hour

Number 3: The chillis are all harvested from the same farm every single year

Number 2: Over 20,000,000 bottles are sold around the world annually

Number 1: The rooster on the bottle is actually the zodiac sign of the original sauce company founder!

Find sriracha right on the Busaba dish menu, too, such as our popular vegan & vegetarian Sriracha Ho Fun Noodles.

Thai fruit skewers recipe

Fresh from the street of Bangkok, our recipe of Thai fruit skewers with sugar & chilli mix is the perfect summer pick-me-up dessert!

1) In a small pot, mix salt, granulated sugar and chilli flakes. Make sure that chilli flakes aren't too much so the mix isn't so spicy (unless you love the heat!)
2) Chop up watermelon, mango, pineapple and melon into small cubes. In Bangkok these fruity treats are usually sold in plastic bags but for a more beautiful presentation, place them on skewers
3) Dip you skewers into your sugar & chilli mix!
4) Time to impress your friends : your home-made Thai fruit skewers are ready.

Bang-Kapi katsu - a real contender for the ultimate Thai comfort food

Introducing our new Bang-Kapi katsu. Served daily from noon until 7pm.

It's one of the best surprises from our recent trip to Bangkok seeing Thailand's very own version of katsu. It's named after district (Bang-Kapi) where we first saw Bangkok's love for Thai katsu.

Our tip is to pour the golden curry sauce over the breadcrumb coated chicken and top this with our pickled ginger and green mango salad!

This dish has fast become a favourite on our Bangkok Express Lunch and 2 plate Bangkok Fix menu. Try it for yourself.
