No real favorite. There are lots of good ones. Presidents Choice makes one called Memories of Thailand.
Here is another one I see at the grocery stores a lot.

The imported ones I see in Asian grocery stores are only about 3-4 bucks for a big bottle and are all pretty good...

Isn't that Sriracha? Is that sweet?

Thanks Roch. I'll keep an eye open for those. There don't seem to be any weird ingredients.

It's made by the same people. They have a chili paste and a garlic chili paste in addition to their chili sauce (sriracha). I think the actual brand name is Huy Fong. The chili paste is very mildly sweet. The garlic chili paste is not sweet. Any of the three are really good on wings, either by themselves or mixed with something like soy sauce or lime juice. I would think they'd be good on rotisseri chicken too.

That's Sriracha sauce. Spicy hot and piquant and good but not really a dipping sauce.

Sweet Thai chili sauce is an entirely different thing altogether and FABULOUS with chicken. It is sold in a large glass bottle same size and shape as fish sauce

The same company that makes the particular sriracha I prefer also makes a chili paste that I've hear refered to as thai chili paste and thai chili sauce. It's thicker than sriracha and has a different flavor.

As for sriracha as a dipping sauce, personally I really like it for exactly that purpose. Sometimes I mix it with a little honey, sometimes a liytle lime juice, sometimes a little hoisen sauce, or sometimes with a little soy sauce. Somtimes I just thin it with a little water or use it straight. Just a personal preffernce.

I have had that one before, also. It's definitely a good one.

Thai sweet chili sauce suggested by Rocklobster is clear orange, sweet and thick.

Nothing like Sriracha or the other Rooster chile paste products <--- which I love, by the way.

I like this product mixed with plumb sauce for chicken or chicken fingers, or other type of fried things like egg rolls, etc...I am a bit anal about how it should be applied. I like to put a puddle of plumb sauce and then add a dollop of sambal olek in the middle. Never actually mix to incorporate the two totally. This way, when you dip and drag, you get the full effect of the sweet/salty/hot contrast becasue they are all hitting your taste buds in their most natural form...weird, I know....
