Soy sauce, soya sauce or Shoyu!

A debate has broken out here in the office on the merits of the various soy/soya/shoyu sauces. As someone who rarely uses it as a condiment for dressing food (other than in Asian salad dressings) I’m pretty neutral – once it’s in a sauce and cooked I can’t tell any difference. I have 3 brands in the kitchen – including Kikkoman. Here’s where the debate stemmed from.

Is Kikkoman really the prince of soy sauces? A tricky one – especially if you consider the varieties from different cultures (with ‘respek’  to Wikipedia)


I’d be very interested to hear anyone’s thoughts – Kikkoman makes claim to tbe the premium brand – can this be upheld or is it marketing hype?

    Oh, good debate! I for one am completely devoted to Hawaiian Shoyu. My blog partner Kate told me how much she loved it and since I tried it, I’ve never gone back! We both love it so much that when she moved to Louisiana and couldn’t find it in the stores, I shipped her a whole box full!
