You guys should have come with me! I saw those brands, but didn't know whether to get them or not!

Added to the list. Thanks!

I am amazed at how much cheaper things are at the Oriental Grocery (yes, that's the name) than the same stuff on Amazon. For example, Kimlan low sodium soy sauce 20 oz was $4.49 in the store, on Amazon it's around $11.00 plus shipping.

I got my fish sauce as a gift from Damien, I was upset with a bottle I had bought that I had to leave outside, it smelled so bad. He sent me a bottle of the good stuff.

I think Kikkoman low sodium is the absolute best for low sodium. I use Healthy Boy for non low sodium.

The "Oriental Grocery" is sorta like the "Colored Grocery." Yes, it's unfortunately named, but it might be better just to call it your Asian market.

Got it! Thanks!

I like Kikkoman low sodium for general purpose too. It's 24% sodium. The Kimlan is 21% sodium. I tasted some, and it has that great "restaurant" taste.

Interesting...

Could you maybe post a pic if it? Because its not a familiar brand and when you see a sea of soy sauces at the store its easier to go by what they look like .

I'd love to try a lower sodium soy sauce with flavor!!!

Here ya go!

They sell it cheaper than Amazon, but $2 more than my little Asian market. The Amazon reviews are fun to read, apparently folks have been hoarding the little packets from the restaurants.

Don't forget the fresh veggies. Around here, super cheap.
99 cent a pound nappa cabbage, vs 2.88 in the supermarket.
If you like cookies and such, be sure to check those out too.
Noodles. Rice, wheat, bean... all cheaper.
Kepac Manin... its a thick sweet soy sauce, very good.
Frozen dumplings! Wei-chuan is a good brand.
Thin sliced dehydrated shiitake mushrooms. Great for everything, super cheap.
And be daring, try some of the cold single serve beverages; fruit drinks and such!

This is my favorite. Na Rog. Roasted chilis in oil. I love the smokey, hot flavor with any kind of eggs, noodles or veggies....very addictive..
