Soy Sauce!!

Why is it so hard to find soy sauce made of just soy??? Most brands of soy sauce contain wheat, especially those found in restaurants. This brand, La Choy, thankfully does not contain wheat. I have not found it yet in little packets, so I just pack a bottle of it in a ziplock bag and throw it in my purse when I am going out for sushi. All of the sushi restaurants that I have visited in SD serve wheat-containing soy sauce, which is disappointing. I have heard that Nobu, downtown, has wheat-free soy sauce, but I haven't been there yet. Oh and La Choy is a regular grocery store brand... I found mine at Vons.

  1. La Choy is easy to find, but it has a stronger taste than the soy sauce served at most Japanese restaurants, which I don't like.

    At Henry's and probably Whole Foods you can find San-J Tamari Soy Sauce which is also wheat free, and I find it to be a much better alternative.

    Also, when going to sushi/Japanese restaurants, you can ask if they have Tamari because many of them use it to cook with and will have it on hand. But I still always bring a bottle of it with me when going to a new restaurant. :)
