Junebug's | Hallelu-jah! Sauce
Hallelu-jah! Sauce was created in 1986 in the kitchen of Thompson's Point of View (Thompson's), a family owned southern Creole restaurant formerly located in the heart of the Seattle's Central District. Folks gathered at Thompson's whether from the neighborhood, suburbia or out of town for more than 20 years.
"Looking for a way to distinguish our gourmet universal sauce, we combined the best herbs and spices used in Creole and deep-southern cooking and infused them with Asian spices to give it a Pacific Northwest appeal. When our gourmet sauce debuted, one of the guests shouted, "Hallelu-jah!," hence the name of our sauce. Customers began to request Hallelu-jah! Sauce on everything from poultry to seafood to vegetables dishes. This sweet, spicy and savory blend quickly became a delightful dipping, marinade and basting sauce."
