Foodie Find: Fat Rice Hot Sauces

March 26, 2014

From their kitchen to your home, Foodie Finds seeks out prepared goods from Chicago’s most talented artisans and chefs so that the party doesn't have to stop once you leave the restaurant.

While brunching at Fat Rice this past weekend, we discovered a spicy surprise. The restaurant has started making and bottling its own line of hot sauces. The condiment comes in five flavors: Piri Piri, Lucky Jerk, Green Dragon Kecap, Fatracha and Diablo Ghost Pepper. Lucky for us, the latter was on our table: a red sauce with deep spice notes that hit you in the back of the throat and linger for a while. For those who fall in love with the sauce (or the bottle designed by Sarah Becan, whose tasty work can also be found at Yusho and Billy Sunday), they are sold in Fat Rice’s waiting room for $11.
