It's National Hot Sauce Day and a deadly Dublin restaurant is bringing all the spiciness
Give us it.
Hot sauce is probably one of our favourite condiments and we'll literally have it with anything. Chicken wings, veggies, tacos, burritos - you name it, we'll have hot sauce on it.
Well, tomorrow, Wednesday 22 January, it's National Hot Sauce Day and to celebrate Deliveroo has invited us to try its latest offering.
Deliveroo's and its newest restaurant partner, Chimac, have been working together behind the scenes to put your tastebuds to the ultimate heat test and bring you the hottest of the hot Chicken Wings - the Hella Hot Wings.
The wings are tossed in Chimac's spiciest ever sauce that's made with gochujang (a Korean sweet & spicy fermented chilli paste), fresh garlic, a blend of four fresh chillies - jalapenos, habaneros, Ghost Peppers and the world's hottest chilli pepper - The Carolina Reaper.
The restaurant then adds a splash of soju and a hint of honey for a gloriously sticky and punchy sauce.
Let's just say, it's not for a faint-hearted.
Commenting on the new partnership, Chimac’s head chef, Garret FitzGerald said: "We’re really excited to be
working with Deliveroo to bring our Seoul-inspired food to the desks and doors of Dublin. The name ‘Chimac’ comes from the Korean compound word “Chimaek” which is made up of ‘Chikin” + ‘Maekju’.
"These words translate directly to ‘fried chicken’ + ‘beer’ in Korean. This hot sauce takes inspiration from Korea’s love of incredibly spicy food and would certainly pair beautifully with an ice-cold craft beer!!"
The wings are available now and priced at €7.50 for 6 wings or €14 for 12 wings.
