sierra cook and i are right with you ic. we love mae ploy. my wife prefers maggi brand sweet chilli sauce; i think she says it's less sweet (or less spice, i don't remember. there's just so much to have to listen to and remember...lol.
i got hooked on mae ploy at a thai restaurant here in the city, on a dish called pla muk yang. it is simply flash grilled squid rings on skewers atop a bed of crisp lettuce and julienne carrots, with mae ploy sauce and fresh cilantro.
vid, lucky, and sattie, see if you can find mae ploy and give it a try.
