Nama Shoyu

Does any one know where I could find Nama Shoyu in Toronto, or GTA (Brampton area.) I have started getting into raw (vegan) food and it seems like a major ingredient is Nama Shoyu, but I am unable to find it in the Brampton Asian markets I have looked at.

If you don't know what nama Shoyu is, it is a "high class" soy sauce that is aged in wooden barrels apparently. I have tried just using soy sauce but it has too high of a salt content where as I believe Nama Shoyu doesn't. I suppose I could try using Braggs, but would rather try and use nama Shoyu first.

  1. I'd give a call to Sanko on Queen West. J-Town, too, maybe.
