Yoshinoya/Kotobukiya Soy Sauce Question

sprout | Mar 15, 2006 07:38 AM

I went to Yoshinoya yesterday; it's a great store. I bought bonito flakes, seaweed salad, lychee candy, and some udon. I did not, however, buy any soy sauce! They didn't have a very large selection and I just have no idea what I'm looking for. They had organic Kikkoman anda Yamasa soy sauces, and the Yamasa one was labeled Maru-Daizu. Is this what I want?

I'm just looking for a very tasty soy sauce appropriate for eating raw with sushi or dumplings. Something that has a very full flavor without being thin or harsh. I don't like Eden soy or San-J quite enough, but I did have a variety of Kikkoman that was very good. I'm trying to get someone to send me a picture of the bottle so I might have better luck finding it here. I miss Uwajimaya!

Oh! I think I might've just found it on the Uwajimaya website. It's Kikkoman Tamari, not shoyu. I've included a link to it. Has anyone seen this product in MA? I would still like other recommendations for tasty soy sauce, as well.

Thanks very much for any help!
