    Soy sauce - Help, which one?

    As I shield myself from getting something tossed at me :smile1:, while I admit I just buy the low sodium Kikkoman brand.

    I want to get something more robust and have a few Asian marts close by.

    Are there some brands that I really should be looking at getting?

    Thanks.

    I like the Kimlan brand-

    The "lou Chau" dark for cooking and the "super special" for dipping.

    I've tried many brands, and like Kikkoman the best. Full sodium, though.

    Pearl River Bridge does it for me. I have the light, dark, and sweet varieties!
    Kiko is Japanese flavor while PRB is Chinese.

    The one I prefer is Aloha, from Hawaii.

    I use Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce (used to be called Golden Mountain Flavor Sauce)for Thin Soy and Kwong Hung Seng Sauce (Red Label) for Black Soy (thick). Both are from Thailand. -Doug

    Sure do appreciate the suggestions folks.

    I made a soy dip sauce to go with the salmon this evening. I didn't get to the market yet, but look forward to trying a few of these outs.

    I also really like the fact you guys included thin and thicker types for different functions. Very nice.

    Try some Indonesian Kecap Manis for real fun.
