Popular dipping sauce in Chinese carryouts that serve soul food (e.g. fried chicken wings & French fries), found primarily in Maryland and Washington, D.C. It can pronounced as "Mumbo Sauce" OR "Mambo Sauce."
Blend plain BBQ sauce, soy sauce, and plenty of sugar in a container. Other variations include ketchup. Color ranges from deep red to light red, to red-orange. Consistency ranges from a BBQ sauce-thick to hot sauce- thin.
Thrifty carryouts are known to add water to cut costs! Hot sauce is not normally added to Mumbo/Mambo Sauce.
"The lady at the carryout always give me extra soy sauce, duck sauce, but never extra mumbo sauce!"
