Huy Fong (rooster brand) sriracha in London?

Does anyone know where I can purchase the Huy Fong (rooster) brand of sriracha in London?

I used to buy it at Golden Gate on Shaftesbury, but their original location has closed and they no longer carry it at their new (considerably smaller) store.

I searched high and low throughout Chinatown yesterday and eventually bought a couple of bottles of the flying goose brand to tide me over, but I'd love to know where I can find my old standby. Somewhere within Zone 1 would be ideal, but I can travel further out if necessary.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Banh Mi Bay in Clerkenwell has them for around £4 a bottle. Though you could order online for less I would think.

    1. Looks like you can order it from more expensive by a £ or so than buying it as above.

      1. How different is it to the flying goose one?

        1. Thanks for the suggestions everyone – I was paying £3.85 for one of the large bottles previously, so Banh Mi Bay sounds like a good alternative (plus I've been meaning to go there for a while).

          Cathodetube: IMHO, I find the flying goose brand sweeter and more garlicky than Huy Fong's. Plus, the flying goose brand contains MSG.

            Thanks. I have tried a few in the US and haven't liked a lot of the ones I tried here.

          2. Camden: Taste of Siam at 45 Camden High Street has an adjoining shop with Thai groceries. They have Huy Fong. Was overjoyed to find it. Flying Goose does not cut it!
