Soy Sauce in Montreal

montrealeater | | Dec 28, 2011 09:04 AM

Can someone recommend me a brand of soy sauce and a place to buy it? This is an ongoing 'thing' for me. I hate Kikkoman - especially on sushi, but in general as well. It tastes too salty, strong and heavy. I have tried other soy sauces from the grocery store and never found one I liked. Someone said I should buy the China Lily stuff because it was sweeter, but it was just like sweet Kikkoman - still heavy and strong. I am not a soy sauce snob, in fact I always like the little packagaes of it that come with supermarket sushi (yes, I sometimes buy spicy salmon sushi from loblaws - it comes with little soy sauce packets) - that stuff seems a lot lighter and slightly sweet but not *sweet*. So I'm pretty sure this isn't about me needing to go out of my way to get something pricey and high end. I'm not familiar with any of the terms I should be using. So if anyone can recommend a light, sweetish soy sauce that would be good on sushi (Kikkoman *did* do a version for sushi specifically, and it still wasn't good), as well as where I can get it, please do so. Also, if there is a term for the thing I am looking for, fill me in. :)

EDIT: I would also like to know where to find thin/skinny dry egg noodles (for an Asian noodle dish) - I can only find large/flat/German-style egg noodles at the regular grocery store.
