Sam's Signature Sambal!

$ 8.50
Sam Tan's Kitchen's sensational signature sambal, the Malaysian hot-sauce that goes with everything! Now available in 2 sizes!
A spicy, sweet and tangy sauce made with onions, garlic, dried chillies, anchovies, shrimp paste and tamarind, this super versatile, ultimate umami-bringing, magical condiment can be slathered all over your breakfast eggs, or dolloped on your burger/sandwich/pizza slice. Dip your fries in it (no disrespect, ketchup/mayo/Sriracha), or whack some into your rice or noodles for an added punch. Stir fry with your favorite meat or vegetables, or (hey, why not) just spread it on toast like some sambal fanatics do!
Traditionally an accompaniment to Malaysia's national dish of nasi lemak, this to-die-for hot sauce and its multi-dimensional explosive flavors elevates pretty much any savory dish to another level.

Obsessed - also, amazing with fries

Been putting sambal on literally everything - eggs, fish, rice, chicken. Brings back memories of the classic rice + fried egg + soy sauce + sambal combo. I also found out it goes well as a dip for fries!

Just eat it by the spoonful!

This sambal is soooooo good! I put some on my food but felt like I was missing the taste of the sambal, so I just ate some by the spoonful. Very tasty!!!!


Heavenly good aroma. Needs more ikan bilis. Too spicy & greasy for me, the spicyness overwhelmed the other flavors like sweet & sour.
The food package was a gift for Christmas from my niece in Australia thru Sam's Kitchen in LA. It arrived well sealed & packaged. Good job Sam for bringing a piece of Malaysia to our white friends in the USA. Thank you Rekha, good recommendation.

Delicious and authentic

Spicey, sweet, umami, salty, just the right amount of tamarind.. hits all the notes! Perfect on nasi lemak. Will order again.

Authentic Taste of Home

Such a treat to be able to have homemade sambal and ikan bilis. Gave some as Christmas presents and my family loved it. Great communication with Sam and delicious foods. Can't wait to try more in the future.
