Sriracha in Somerville/Cambridge?

meaganl Dec 18, 2008 11:13 AM

Anyone know where I can buy a squeeze bottle of sriracha in the Somerville/Cambridge area? I thought I'd be able to find it at Market Basket but I didn't see it.

    Maybe that little Asian market next to Hana Sushi on Mass Ave in No Camb?

      Farmers Bounty in Davis usually has it (they were out last time I tried to get it there, but the guy behind the counter said they'd have it again the following week).

      I don't specifically remember seeing it at Kotobukiya in the Porter Exchange, but I'd imagine they'd have it. Ditto Reliable Market in Union Square.

      And I'm pretty sure I've seen it at Whole Foods.

        New Deal sells it too.

        Have people started pronouncing it properly (sri-raa-chaa) instead of "sri-RAjuh"

        I know. I'm being nitpicky, but it kills me to hear people say it wrong.

          You're a tad off in your own pronunciation of 'Siracha' (ศรีราชา). The 'r' in the first syllable is silent and not pronounced. So it is really SiiRaaChaa. And to be really nit-picky correct, the first syllable is pronounced with a rising tone.

          Have you looked in the regular supermarkets? I thought Sriracha is pretty ubiquitous these days - look in the "Asian" aisles.

          the Fresh Pond Whole Foods has had it in the past.

              I did just see it at Kotobukiya in the Porter Exchange the other day.

                And, of course, Reliable Market in Union Sq......

                  I thought it had replaced ketchup as the condiment of choice--we even have it in the supermarket here in New Hampshire! ;)
