SILVER LAKE -- Chef Uyen Le is squeezing out every resource to stock up on Sriracha amid the Sriracha shortage.
"I've personally been going to different markets and stuff trying to gather and one of my employees recommended why don't you just post it on Instagram," Le said.
Le is the owner and chef Bé in Silver Lake, a Vietnamese takeout spot known for its popcorn shrimp and summer rolls.
One of the largest Sriracha producers is based in Irwindale, California. A representative for the company, Huy Fong Inc., announced the shortage in April saying that severe weather has impacted the quality of the chili peppers.
"Unlike other shortages we've been dealing with this feels more like it's related directly to climate change," Le said.
And with that in mind, Le took to Instagram with the employees' idea: free food in exchange for bottle of Sriracha.
Within less than a week, the restaurant has collected more than 100 bottles.
"The response has been great. And folks have been just really just thoughtful and sweet," Le said.

The battle for the SEC title comes down to the 9-3 LSU Tigers versus the undefeated Georgia Bulldogs, with a trip to the college football playoffs on the line for the Bulldogs.
Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said in his pre-game press conference that they’re trying to keep his team focused on the game in front of them and not look ahead to a potential playoff berth.
“We’re worried about winning the SEC championship. That’s the most important thing on our agenda, is to have an opportunity to do something that rarely gets done,” said Smart. “I mean, it’s tough to win an SEC championship. I’ve been part of this league for a long time. I have almost as many national championships as I do SEC championships. They’re really hard to come by. We’re focused on LSU.”
He was also asked if he thinks LSU will be hungrier for a win after losing their final regular season game to Texas A&M. He said, no, he doesn’t think that is a factor and he thinks LSU would be ready either way.
“I don’t know that the week before’s result is a major factor. I mean, you think they’d want to win any less if they won last night? I just don’t look at things like that,” said Smart. “I look at it as we’re preparing ourselves to give ourselves the best chance to win this game. Regardless of the outcome of last night’s game, I think LSU is going to be ready to play us.”
Smart also said that LSU does a “tremendous job” on defense and they are going to be facing a lot of “big, physical” players in the championship game.
“They got these big, physical SEC players. Not that [head coach Brian Kelly] didn’t when they were at Notre Dame. They’ve got really good skill players. They’ve got an extremely athletic quarterback. Do a tremendous job defensively. I got a lot of respect for their defensive staff, what they do,” said Smart. “But they’re really athletic. I mean, LSU never is going to be short on players. The state, that area, high school football is so meaningful, and they do such a good job recruiting, that he’s got some really talented guys, really talented players playing.”
“I’ve always had respect for Brian Kelly’s teams going way back to when we played him at Notre Dame. They had very high quality preparation, coaching staff, they do a great job in all areas … he knows how to run a program back to the Grand Valley State days,” added Smart.
The SEC Championship game kicks off Saturday, December 3 at 4 p.m. Eastern time on CBS.
