Best hot sauce in LA

Thanks for the input. I might try the Gindo's hot sauce but $10 for an 8 ounce bottle is a little steep. Will try and check out Carnitas Michaocan but reviews on yelp were saying the hot sauce is your typical hot sauce with lime juice.

Keep the input coming in! I know there is a special sauce out there.

Best hot sauce in LA

I have been searching all over LA for a great Mexican hot sauce and yet to find one. Most have your basic salsa with vinegar or lime juice. I am looking for that old authentic sauce that relies on the flavor of peppers and spices and not anything sour like lime juice or vinegar. I had checked this site earlier and many people were raving about King tacos and their sauce. I found one of the places and the sauce was hot but subpar.

best place for authentic Mexican hot sauce- or a recipe

I see that most of the recipes and favorite places listed here use either lime, lemon or vinegar. The three best sauces i have ever had have been basic but with special spices. Flavor comes from the blend of the spices and peppers and not tangy lime. One of the basic ones contains:

tomato sauce
japanese peppers
onion
special oregano
salt

There is one other ingredient I can't figure out.

I am trying to find some place with great hot sauce - not salsa or a recipe for it. I like the sauce that is made with peppers and spices and not your salsas with vinegar or lime juice.
