FYI, as most people I find do not know this, but there is a special type of shoyu just for sashimi. You can find it at Holiday Mart. It is thicker and coats better.
Are you talking about [i]tsuyu[/i]?

Aloha is too salty.
Yamasa is smoother, but Kikkoman is OK.
The mainland has this nasty shoyu called Kim Lan - yuck!

In the natural foods industry the name Johsen is synonymous with shoyu (soy sauce made with wheat). In 1988, Johsen shoyu received the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture's first place award for the highest quality soy sauce in Japan. It was selected from over 2,000 entries by a panel of the world's foremost shoyu experts. And also Eden brand. Kikkoman aged two months? OK for the masses, but ALOHA brand is(chemical).. really, I won tink u wuz local. No ka oi brah ? Love that locals still make shoyu on the Big Island. Miss the pork hash I get down in Kalihi,

Kikkoman is better for poke, IMHO. It has more of a shoyu taste as opposed to a salty taste.

Also, Club Shoyu (brewed in Hilo) is a fav for poke and smoked meat or fish.

I pose another question to all you local cooks out there, the one that will define you in the eyes of others .... Aloha, Kikkoman or Yamasa ? Let the voting begin.... Remember Kikkoman and Yamasa have been made since the 1600's
I grew up on Kikkoman. But had Yamasa with sushi I bought and really liked it. Not a fan of Aloha but will use it if there isn't anything else and I don't like shoyu chicken made with Aloha.

I buy half a gallon of Kikoman and half Aloha and mixed the 2 buggas together .that way I am assured to get the best of both. Smart buggas know how to do it.
