How to Open a Bottle of Golden Boy Brand Fish Sauce

Diana Chan January 4, 2015 product


I was cooking this weekend and I bought a bottle of Golden Boy Brand Fish Sauce for $2 at the store. You would think opening a bottle would be the least of your worries when cooking. Clearly, I was wrong.

The top had no tab or twist cap that you would expect. Sometimes this happens with imported items, we’re just not used to how they do it there.


I tried pulling the tip, pushing it, twisting it, stabbing it, and pinching it. I spent a good 15 minutes trying to figure this out. I’ve never felt so dumb in my life. I graduated with a BBA and I can’t seem to open a bottle of fish sauce.


Take a sharp knife and carefully slice off the plastic top. I used a steak knife and slowly cut it. I was tempted to hack it up into pieces, but I had to control my rage so I don’t accidentally stab myself.

So simple, yet so complicated to figure out.


Now you know how to open a bottle of Golden Boy Brand Fish Sauce.

    Thank you foodology followers! Not only was I amused that so many other people struggled with this nottlwnofnfoah sauce, I am grateful for the guy that figured it out and posted how to open it! I’ve had a bottle in my fridge for over a year, cursing at it every time I needed fish sauce because I couldn’t get the damn sauce out! Will give this a shot and hope I don’t lose a finger in the process. This brand has to figure out a better way!
