Maya Ik - not icky at all!

VP of Feeling Groovy | Feb 5, 2010 09:13 PM

A few years ago, I was introduced to Maya Ik, a hot sauce from Guatemala. When I used up my supply (bought in Guatemala by friends working there), I looked all over Toronto for it with no success and have had to get people to bring up bottles for me to satisfy my cravings.

I was so pleased a couple weeks ago when a friend noticed Maya Ik for sale at Perola in Kensington Market! I bought a few bottles so there'd be some turnover in their inventory in the hopes they will make it a regular item. And, as part of that scheme, I'm telling you about it.

Maya Ik is not very hot for a hot sauce but has a very nice smoky flavour, probably made with chipotles. Just $1.99 a bottle so I'd encourage you to check it out while it is available. And let us know what you think.
