Octo Vinaigrette

garlic, sesame oil, light soy sauce, rice vinegar, grapeseed oil, bird's eye chili, ginger, sugar

If you love garlic and ginger, you’re going to love octo vinaigrette. It’s not the kind of vinaigrette you’d toss iceberg lettuce in, but fried chicken, now there’s something that will stand up to the intense flavours of the octo vin.

shake it all up and you're good to go!

All that’s in it is garlic, ginger, bird’s eye-chili, rice wine vinegar, light soy sauce, sugar, black pepper, grapeseed and sesame oil. So simple, so delicious!

octo vinaigrette

It differs from traditional vinaigrettes because it flips the vinegar to oil ratio and packs a big vinegar punch. Octo vin is very Momofuku: Asian flavours, unique approach, satisfying, finger-licking deliciousness.

  1. Would it be okay to give the exact ratio of the ingredients? :)

    Thanks… because I am not sure how much of each to add to make this octo vinagrette :)


    Here’s a link from Time Out New York where they have the recipe. http://bit.ly/rWKfo

    Steph, the link you provided which lists the recipe for the octo vin isn’t working. Can you provide the recipe or a link where it is on the web? Thanks so much

  2. I’m having some real problems finding bird’s eye chilis.
    I’ve checked several Asian Markets with no success.
    Any ideas?

    Usually bird’s eye or Thai chilis are pretty easy to find. If they aren’t at your local Asian markets, you can see if Whole Foods will order them in for you. It might be a bit expensive, but at least it’s an option.
