Su Chili Crisp Trio


Big News: Su Chili Crisp has two new flavors and a rebrand. We received many requests for variations on the Su original; we hope these new flavors suit all your chili crisp needs.

Su Chili Crisps are produced in small batches in Taipei, Taiwan, using a traditional technique that has been passed down through generations. Our favorite product now has a new look and two new flavors. View the full collection here.

This set includes all three flavors of Su: Mala (original), Cilantro (new), and Five Spice (new).

Mala is the original Szechuan peppercorn-forward Su. Cilantro is more delicate and herbacious in flavor, great for use when the mala numbing flavor is not desired or in milder foods like congee. Five Spice is stronger in flavor (and spicier); It's great for use in beef noodle soup, zha jiang noodles, or for dipping Lu Wei marinated meats and vegetables.

Eater calls Su "the best thing to happen to a stash of frozen dumplings," and Epicurious has named it "one of the best chili crisps you can buy." This packs a punch with only a few ingredients and no food additives.

Made in Taipei, Taiwan.

About Su Spicy Oil

Su Spicy Oil is Chen Yu Chao 陳宇超, producer of Su Chili Crisp.

My mother was born in the crowded military villages of 1930s Taiwan. There, she learned to make a chili oil with such a delicious smell, it attracted neighbors from down the block. As she grew older and production became too difficult for her, I took over and continued making this chili oil by hand, in the way that she taught me.
