Another pronunciation discussion...Sriracha

I think Sriracha should be pronounced

SHREE racha because the Sri in some languages is an honorific prefix. I am not trying to be disrespectful to anyone out there who pronounces it differently, but sir racha seems right out.

What do you think?

        For the win!

        You've got to go with man who makes it, after all. All the others were quite clear. No confusion.
