I bought this bottle of fish sauce and cannot seem to find a proper way to open it. Tried some methods but so far all failed 1: using my fingernails to pull the translucent plastic cork upward; 2: unscrewing the whole yellow cap with absolutely brutal force (apparently the translucent cork itself blocks the unscrewing); 3: use scissors to cut off the translucent cork (this one probably could eventually make an opening if you are persistent enough to trim off everything. However, I suspect there is a proper and cleaner method to open this bottle). Can someone suggest a method to open it?
Googling around, I found these tips, which all basically say to slice off the inside cover.
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. - Diana Chan, foodology.ca
I am not alone in being somewhat puzzled by how to open the Golden Boy fish sauce bottles. The punchline is to take a knife and to cut off the raised "nipple" so that you have an opening. - comradechufood
Do you mean after flipping the cap back? Many have that little nipple thing that needs to be cut off - Candy, Chowhound
They wouldn't make all that just so you would cut it off. I'd suggest poking a hole with a needle.
