This addictive Japanese version of Chinese chili oil is mild in spice but big on flavor. It includes bits of crunchy fried garlic, onion, and sesame seeds. This is a chili crisp that you can put on anything.
An interesting factoid for you: Taberu Rayu is a fairly new Japanese condiment. Created in 2009 and hitting peak food trendiness in 2010, this Japanese version of Chinese chili oil is mild in spice, but big on flavor. Under the name "chili crisp," these addictive oils are once again enjoying a resurgence among the culinary-minded in the roaring 2020's. Momoya makes its Taberu Rayu with nanohana oil and includes bits of fried garlic, onion, and sesame seeds, for a condiment with an added textural experience. Try this on gyoza, fried rice, ramen, or really, anything to give it a crunchy, slightly spicy kick.
