Forget Huy Fong; Houston has its own Sriracha company

Well, this is kind of cool.  Looks like there have been a local Texas producer of a Sriracha sauce.

Nguyen explained that each sauce can be used for specific foods. For the yellow sauce, Nguyen said it was good with noodles or steak, the green for seafood and the red a general Sriracha that can be used on anything.

When coming up with the recipes for the different sauces that Sang Sang makes, Nguyen only had one place to look.

"(My mom) always made these fresh Srirachas for us, and I wanted to run with the idea that lets us create a sauce line for my mom, and through a lot of trial and error we were able to successfully accomplish this now," Nguyen said. "So she's happy."

Nguyen's Sriracha sauce is expected to hit the shelves in September, and Nguyen says the price shouldn't be much different than his competitors, around $4 for a 10.5-ounce bottle.
