Fly by Jing

absolutely delicious. my first introduction to chili crisp oil was everyone's obsession with TJ's version a couple of years ago. when i finally got my hands on TJ's version, i was sorely disappointed. all i tasted was olive oil without a speck of spice. fortunately, i got to try 'fly by jing' and was blown away. fly by jing comes in a glass jar, and as soon as you open it, you're greeted with an intense smell of spices and an intensely colored concoction. that's when i knew i was in for a delightful treat. the chili crisp is properly crunchy with sizeable pieces of chili, garlic, black beans, and shallots. i loved that the chili crisp tasted like more than just oil? it was umami filled probably from the mushroom and seaweed powder. just insanely delicious. i tried it on avocado toast, instant ramen, and an egg salad sandwich, all super delicious and spicy. my spice tolerance isnt as good as it used to be so around a teaspoon was good enough to enjoy the pleasant numbing sensation. the one downside, however, is the product has a tendency to leak for some reason. despite screwing the lid on as tight as possible, it will leak if you lean it lol. just be careful! i look forward to trying their other flavors especially the mala spice blend.
