Arbol Nori Sesame Pura Macha
ARBOL + NORI + SESAME is an homage to the umami-rich flavors of furikake. The chile de Arbol says “hello, I’m here!” and the Sichuan peppercorn says “hello, I’m staying!” while the nori and sesame play together in the background. We spoon this one on all seafood (think roasted shrimp, Pescado a la Talla roasted oyster mushrooms, eggs, rice, noodles, vegetable crudites, and salads.
Literally translated as “brave salsa” (a reference to the spice level of some, not all, recipes) salsa macha is an oil-based chile condiment, traditionally prepared with some combination of chiles, nuts/seeds, spices and dried fruits. From the traditional salsas machas across Mexico, to the chili oils of China and Southeast Asia, to “XO” sauce in Hong Kong and rāyu in Japan, oil-based condiments can be traced to cultures from all over the world. We’re stoked to present our own take on the staple, from two of our very own at Masienda–handmade in Los Angeles, of course. We spoon Pura Macha onto masa dishes like tacos, quesadillas and tamales, as well as pizza, salad, roasted vegetables, noodles, beans, rice, pasta, yogurt, bread and butter, to name just a few. Welcome to the everything condiment.
