Product Details

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!
