"Tangy, spicy, and savory" sounds like Worcestershire sauce.
There are different ways to add heat. Cayenne and/or sweet paprika and/or chili powder and/or madras-style curry powder might be a good fit for this dish.

https://www.recipetineats.com/cottage-pie/ this looks pretty legit,
That does sound good.
Right now I'm sitting in my car in a parking lot watching a pan-Asian restaurant getting stocked. It's bizarre. (The restaurant is in the same building where my friend operates a dance studio, where my daughter takes classes.)
First the big truck showed up, which wasn't surprising; all of the usual large boxes of food service grade stuff came out of the truck - cooking oil, vegetables, etc.
Then an unmarked white van appeared and a gaggle of pan-Asians emerged, and they're bringing in all sorts of things in smaller containers. There are pans full of uncooked food that appear to have been fabricated elsewhere.
There are 5 gallon buckets of various substances, some only partially filled.
There are boxes of various qualities that contain unknown substances. And they're all just wandering between the van and the building, sometimes with their hands full, sometimes not.
And there is a decidedly funky smell in the air.
I think maybe I'm not going to eat there. It's a bit on the scary side.
Has anyone eaten at "IHOb" yet? harharharhar.
A lot of people seemed genuinely upset that they were going to change their name. I have to admit, I was really skeptical about a company just throwing away a half-century old brand like that.
Turns out it was just a publicity stunt to call attention to their new burger menu, and the "name change" is just a temporary gimmick.
I have to admit it worked. I want to try their burgers.
I did hear about it, and it was very effective. Not even their employees knew the change was temporary, and so carried the message about as far.
Still kind of silly, I think.
And, well, no, I'm not going to try a burger from them. I can't really find anything on their menu that I can eat these days.
I used to like IHOP.. College days though.. Now I think my body would explode.
We've got an IHOP nearby and eat there once in a while. It's decent food, especially the breakfast fare they're known for.
Alright, having to use wildcards is nonsensical. I hereby re-brand the restaurant chain IHOþ.

He probably did it through the web interface ... the text client still barfs on non-ASCII characters and I haven't had the time to figure that out yet.
I like how the combo meal menu at Wendy's has #1, #2, and #3 corresponding neatly to the Single, Double, and Triple burgers. It prevents the ambiguity created by dissimilar sets of numbers.
Really, there ought to be industry-standard meal numbers. For example, #28 should be a spicy chicken sandwich meal regardless of whether I order it at Wendy's or Chick-Fil-A.
Come to think of it, the not-authentic-Chinese restaurant industry ought to do the same thing, since they all serve the same dishes anyway.
