Mombo sauce? At first I thought this might just be a catchy name used for marketing purposes. But after a little bit of Googling, I discovered that there is definitely such a thing as "Mumbo sauce" (the sauce is alternately referred to as 'Mumbo' on the Galloway Gourmet Foods website). Apparently Mumbo sauce is a regional specialty of Chinese takeout shops in the Washington D.C. area, often applied to chicken wings.
While I can't be sure that Galloway's Gourmet Mombo Sauce has any direct connection to the Mumbo sauces of the D.C. area (Galloway is a small California company), their sauce sure would be good on some chicken wings!
It's a thick sauce with bits of onion and garlic suspended throughout. Right off the bat, it's sweet - brown sugar sweet - and savory, with big flavor from the bits of onion and garlic. There is also a definite dose of cumin involved, and a hint of celery flavor. The heat kicks in shortly after and burns just enough to leave your lips tingling.

Their Sweet Chile Garlic Mombo hot sauce sounds so delicious. I bet that would be so great on some ribs or chicken on the grill.

The sauce sounds great.
This would be on my list of what I'd take with me if trapped on an island for life.
we bought a bottle of this sauce and a home and garden show, just finished it and want more... any idea where I can fine it?
I came across one bottle in Home goods or marshals. Loved it so much I googled it and bought a dozen bottles from a San Francisco company. My daughter will not eat anything else on her barbecue chicken or fish or whatever without EJ’s Mumbo sauce
