Burmese chilli oil is essential for noodle and rice dishes not only on the streets of Burma, but at our family homes along with many dishes. The Original Burmese Chili jar is packed with full of rich flavours that you can use daily as a condiment or to add more flavour to your dish by drizzling it over them. I love using it as a dipping sauce for dumplings!
The chili jars are hand made by me, May. I was born in Burma and now living in Manchester with my husband and son. The chili jars were born during lockdown from me sending them to friends and family from near and far to show that I was thinking of them when I couldn’t see them in person. The first batch was such a hit that friends started asking me to sell it to them. I’ve now expanded the range to three different flavours, for all your chili needs!
Made by hand in Manchester.

Hi, my name is May!
I am originally from Myanmar (Burma) and have been living in Manchester for 9 years now with my husband, my son, my cocker spaniel Hina and Nigel the cat.
I couldn’t cook until I was 25, but once I started I’ve never stopped since. My love affair with chilli and spicy food started when I was just 5 years old. I would beg my mum for a local fermented fish sauce dip with lots and lots of fresh chili. My mum said I used to drink the sauce!
My inspirational chili oil was from a restaurant I used to visit all the time as a student in London, called Wong Kei. I think I went there mostly for their chili oil!
My favorite thing to do in the world is to feed people. I absolutely love hosting dinner parties, which is why I would eventually love to start my own supper club, with my chilli oil at the centre of the menu! Aswell as cooking, I love boxing, yoga, running and drinking wine!
