Our Story

Lahtt Sauce was inspired by my father who was head chef of the first Dimsum restaurant (founded by my grandfather) in the South Bay, California.

Around 11 years ago, my dad created his first ever batch of this chili oil sauce for our family. I remember walking into the kitchen that day and the mouthwatering aromas filled up our entire house. Using only a wok, he mixed ingredients such as chili peppers, black beans, dried shrimp, ginger, and garlic and created a chili oil sauce to top off a classic noodle soup. To this day, I remember the experience of eating that meal. I remember the unique, savory, and authentic Asian flavor packed with just the right amount of spice while slurping down the entire bowl of noodles. It was one of the most satisfying and nostalgic meals I have shared with my family.

After years of perfecting this recipe, we now have what we call LAHTT SAUCE ("LAHTT" is Cantonese for HOT) and we're ready to share the same experience with you.

LAHTT SAUCE is a little piece of home away from home. It's an instant memory of my family's dining table, and it's a reminder of what the right combination of simple ingredients can do.

Thanks, Dad.
