Review: This huge bottle of soy sauce is a bargain for only $3.00. Since my girlfriend and I cook with tofu and other protein cakes made from soybeans, I tend to use soy sauce often. Not in large quantities, mind you, but quite often. Just a little dab of soy sauce here or there can make a world of difference in a tofu dish. Think of the difference between a White Castle Slider and a T-Bone steak from Morton’s. There is more to it, of course, but soy sauce is important.
You don’t want that sickly sweet sauce that you find in most grocery stores that is made for western tastes. Sure, it’s salty, but it almost makes your bowl of rice taste like candy.
What you want, is your soy sauce to have a bite that balances delicately on the fence between spicy and bitter. That’s exactly what this soy sauce offers you.
It’s also low in sodium, which I didn’t even notice until I got home. loses a few fractions of a point for that… I’d rather have had the full flavor regular style.
