Sriracha is a hot sauce -- if you can't find it, you can substitute Tabasco or any other hot sauce you like.

Sriracha is an amazing "discovery" in the last few year. Its a South East Asian condiment, that contains hot chili pepper, vinegar, sugar, and garlic. I think it is not very spicy, but that is just me. I think it plays well with many Western foods, especially eggs and tomato sauce. And like Amanda said, Tabasco or Frank's will work if you can't find it, just know their consistency is a lot more loose than Sriracha.
