ISO: (certified) Kosher FIsh Sauce to make Thai Food at home
Does anyone have any idea where this can be found in Toronto, North York or even Thornhill?
I may have an answer, but I also have a question. Would it not have to be vegetarian or fish based Thai food, due to the prohibition on eating meat and fish together? Just curious.
Having asked that, I think you can try this place: koshergourmetmart.com
I doubt very much whether you will find it in a store here
I can't lead you to a brand or a location for this, but I have been startled to notice products from China, Thailand, India, and even Pakistan with hashgachas. Unfortunately, the products I have at home at the moment don't qualify.
A few people I can think of who might know:
- Bonnie at Bonnie Stern's
- Steve at Chapman's Specialty Foods (he might also stock something or know where to order it)
Most Likely place to find it on the shelf, and which you can phone for info:
- Clark Av Sobey's in Thornhill
If you wander through T&T at the Promenade Mall, you might find something on the shelf, but you'd need to read all of the labels yourself and their Thai stock isn't huge

Yeah, it does exist...at $16.99 a bottle and that's for expired stock. Ouch! Religious faith can be a pricey indulgence. Truly happy to be an atheist. I may be spiritually impoverished, but at least I don't need an overdraft to make a Pad Thai :)

Getting COR labelling is a whole different story but by default fish sauce is made w/ anchovies, salt, and a little sugar. Those are kosher friendly ingredients. It obviously depends on how strict you are with the rules, that is for you to decide.
I'm talking about the good brands like Golden Boy (T&T), Tra Chang (Foody Mart), which are kept quite pure.
