Los Angeles Vietnamese Restaurant Offering Free Food in Exchange For Sriracha Bottles

Earlier this month we reported on Huy Fong Inc., the company behind the beloved Rooster Brand Sriracha hot chili sauce, halting production due to a chili pepper shortage from unexpected crop failure from the spring chili harvest.

Feeling the absence of Huy Fong Inc.’s Sriracha sauce, Los Angeles-based restaurant, Bé Ù Kitchen, announced that they would be giving away “free banh mi, popcorn chicken, or order of summer rolls if you bring us a 28oz bottle of sriracha.” If customers bring in 17oz bottles of Sriracha, they will receive half off the price those dishes.

The restaurant shared, “We go through about 312 bottles a year so any little bit helps.” So if anyone generous enough to lend a helping bottle or two to Bé Ù Kitchen, know they’ve got your appetites covered in exchange.
