Eat The Bits Japanese Chilli Oil 160g - TONKOTSU


Eat The Bits Japanese Chilli Oil 160g


Eat The Bits got its name because some people weren’t sure whether they should. Now customers buy ten jars of this Japanese Chilli Oil at a time and the Great Taste Awards bestowed three stars on it, describing it as “a delight”. Crafted using premium UK rapeseed oil, hot chilli d’arbol, the Japanese wonder spice mix shichimi togarashi, red miso, garlic, onion and sesame; it’s time for sriracha to move over because there’s a hot new condiment in town.

This nutty, savoury, spicy and highly addictive condiment was created by the chefs at Tonkotsu, a restaurant whose eponymous dish has been accurately described by Jay Rayner as “the way to make a bad day good”. These maestros arrive at work at 6am every morning to commence creating the creamy pork bone broth and handmade fresh noodles of their signature Kyushu-style ramen. Now, in Japan, it would be an affront to add seasoning to your ramen before tasting the stock that the chef has lovingly created, but when a chilli sauce tastes as good as Eat The Bits you can throw the rule book out of the window. And don’t stop at using it to season ramen - you can roast vegetables in it, add it to stir fries, perk up dressing with it, stir it into marinades, create dipping sauces with it, and drizzle it over scrambled eggs, omelettes, pasta, pad thai or fried rice. In actual fact, the list of things you can’t do with it makes for a very short reading. Just make sure you eat the bits.
