Highlighting Umamipapi Chilli Oil: A Symphony for Your Taste Buds

Take a journey into the heart of flavour with Umamipapi Chilli Oil, a creation by Ethan Yong, an artisan who transformed his love for spice into a culinary sensation. Let's delve into the story behind this sought-after pantry staple.

A Childhood Quest and Lockdown Experiments

Ethan Yong's fascination with chilli oils began in childhood, as he embarked on a quest to try house-made mixes in various restaurants. Fast forward to the lockdown of last year, and he found himself experimenting with recipes, dedicating countless batches to perfecting the ideal chilli oil.

Crafted to Perfection: Three Chillies, One Harmony

Umamipapi Chilli Oil, crafted in a commercial kitchen, embodies perfection. A meticulous blend of Thai chillies for spice, Chinese chillies for aromatic flavour, and Korean green chillies for colour creates a symphony of heat, texture, and flavour. Star anise, cinnamon, garlic, onion, shallots, vegan chicken-stock powder, rock sugar, and a touch of cumin—all elements harmoniously unite in each jar.
