ISO specific Bajan Hot Pepper Sauce

I am hoping someone will help me in the search of one of the most delicious hot sauces I've ever had. My friends brought back a bottle of Bajan Hot Pepper Sauce from Barbados, not sure if it was homemade bought in the markets or at a local grocery store as there is no company listed on the label, just the name 'Bajan Hot Pepper Sauce' and a listing of ingredients. It is a delicious full-bodied sauce consisting of hot peppers, onion, mustard, vinegar and salt and it seemed to compliment everything I put it on. Alas, my bottle is all but empty. Is there something comparable to this out there or the same anywhere that delivers that bang on perfect combination of these ingredients? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

  1. You might check Food Basics in the "ethnic" food sections. I think the brand is Nu-Pac. They have a bajan hot pepper sauce, with a blue label. Don't know how good it is (I brought back a bunch from Barbados, it's great stuff) . If you have any near you, try a caribbean food store. There's one in Kensington, I believe. You'll probably find some there. St. Lucian hot pepper sauce, also includes mustard, is pretty damn good too and tastes somewhat similar.

    1. you clould try
      Taste The 4th Sense
      375 Danforth Avenue

      take the bottle they may be able to source it for you or offer something similar. the nice thing about that place is that you can taste before you buy, the downside is that they are a bit pricey

        Mr. Goudas also makes a Barbados Style sauce. I get it at Food Basics.

        It's great on hamburgers. I also mix it with mayonnaise, worcestershire sauce, and lime juice to use as a dip for shrimp or lobster.

          I love Taste! the sauces are great, but it's more about the greeting I received the first time I walked in there. "welcome to Taste, and YOU'RE welcome to taste anything in the store!"

          it makes me smile just thinking about it....

        2. Thanks everyone for your very helpful suggestions, I'll definitely givem all a whirl, much appreciation!

          1. There is a store in the St. Lawrence Market in the basement and they sell hot sauces. You can check them out.
