A Favorite From Our Trip to Japan!

We found Umami Insider on our hunt for this hot sauce! We tried it earlier this year in our favorite Udon restaurant in Osaka and just love the flavor. The yuzu shines through and the heat is not too much but well balanced. We eat it on eggs, pizza, in soups, etc. Super unique and can’t recommend it enough for literally any dish!

Power to Yuzusco!

Surprisingly versatile as a means of adding a little acidity, heat, and amplifying umami flavors. I prepared scrambled eggs with sauted diced Serrano ham, garlic, parsley and chopped Chanterelle mushrooms. The eggs were, as expected from the combined ingredients, very flavorful. As an experiment we added a few drops of Yuzusco. Those few drops elevated the dish and added additional levels of flavor. Excellent on fish and shell fish as well. True Yuzusco is expensive for a small bottle, but it's worth it. I bought more!

The perfect marriage between yuzo and spice. I put it on nearly everything.

Spicy just right!

I love how the heat of spice is not overpowering but just right. Highly recommend for those who err on the side of mild heat in a hot sauce.

Great product! Adds a nice refreshing flavor with a strong, spicy kick at the end!
