Most underrated sauces/toppings?
My vote goes for oyster sauce. Excellent on burgers, plain white rice, and anywhere your pleb ass would use soy sauce instead. Too strong for dipping, but a thin layer on almost everything savory will blackjack you in a dark Detroit alleyway and smuggle you across interstate lines until you hit Flavortown USA

Also an essential ingredient for recreating Chinese take out.

I could put this shit on vanilla ice cream and it'd still taste delicious.

>>7363972
not op, but I don't think so. I think it tastes vaguely briny I guess, kind of how nori does

Sauce
>>
>>7363972
Not at all, and it doesn't taste at all like oyster unless you take a big spoonful and fight through the salt and sweet/savory flavors.

Best way to describe it is a less sweet teriyaki with a darker, more intense body.

No discernible difference in flavor between the ones with real oyster and the ones with simulated flavoring that I can taste, but Chinamen and >"""""foodies""""" might dispute me

Give it a try

What purpose does it serve?
>>
>>7363995

All.
>>
>>7363972
No, but when you cook with it, it makes your kitchen smell like a vaginal yeast infection for a few minutes.

Goes away quickly and makes your food taste great, though.
>>
>>7363869
Oyster sauce has loads of MSG in it, which, to me, is a beautiful thing.
When confronted with the choice of red label vs. green label, go for the red. It has more of what you're looking for.

Get on my level.

I found this at an asian store but there were several different kinds. One of them was kinda chunky, some had black beans, one was just pure oil I think. Does anyone know which is the "traditional" version?
>>
>>7364341
The sambal is good when you just need pure heat, but I honestly prefer >>7363941 since it's got some other flavors to round things out a bit.

Horseradish in general should be more popular.
>>
>>7367266
Horseradish mustard is the best

Also chipotle mustard
>>
>>7364352
They're all different products. That's like going "I went to the grocery store for some heinz, but one was red, one was yellow, and there were a few others that were green and chunky or brown and sweet."

By your descriptions, it was probably garlic chili crisp, garlic black bean paste, and chili oil.

Why does fish sauce smell like poo but taste like wonderful salty fish?

This sauce can be very tricky, but I find it to taste much better than any ordinary ketchup. The color swap really blows my mind.
>>
>>7363996
who would make such a thing?

>>7363869
This stuff. Don't know why everyone I know hates it. Oh, also Marmite, just a dab on instant noodles=heaven
