Ah, AZFoodie stirs the stick!
I think we need more stick stirring on Thai food topics.
I too like Mae Ploy brand sweet chili sauce. It's a great dipping sauce and good in recipes too.
Even better, chop up some limes and add that to your Mae Ploy sauce. Just chop up the whole limes and remove nothing but the seeds. Make the lime pieces really small. The bitter taste of the lime peels plus the sweet/garlicy taste of the chili sauce makes it sublime!
I'm glad I grew up in a place (Los Angeles) where Asian food is so popular and so widely enjoyed. I remember (many decades ago, too many) when Thai food was unknown, when there was only Chinese food and some Japanese food. I had to drive for 40 minutes (to Pasadena) to get Thai food. Now I can walk to Thai restaurants, or drive only several minutes for a selection of several.
Or just cook my own! Duh!
