Su Chili Crisp Five Spice
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 is a classically flavored, five-spice forward chili crisp. Let it comfort you every time it's opened with the heady smell of anise, cinnamon, allium and chilis. This flavor is the spiciest of the three, though still moderate (at least in our estimation).
Use it on more heavily flavored dishes like Beef Noodle Soup or Lu Wei marinated dishes.
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.
