    "delicious sauce"? What is it? If it's in a province with Japanese places you can probably count on one hand, I'm sure it's here, maybe by some other name- is it ponzu or something?

      I think howlin is looking for a particular brand of ?soy sauce? being imported into Atlantic Canada.
      http://www.oishisauce.com/
      At least it looks like soy sauce by the ingredients.

      howlin: There are some cooking suggestions on that webpage.

        Soy sauce shouldn't have sugar in it. Hard to tell the proportions but looks more like the ingredients for okonomiyaki sauce. You can get that at T & T. I'd try Superstore too since they mention Atlantic Superstore.

          I defer to your superior sauce knowledge.

          From other Google hits, it looks like it is actually being made in PEI as opposed to being imported (as I had thought before).
          Some more marketing blurbage that I found:

          The first cholesterol free 99.99% natural cooking sauce you actually cook anything in, without the use of oils or fat.

          Oishi Sauce is healthy! It's purely VEGETARIAN and THE FIRST and ONLY multipurpose cooking sauce with NO oil, NO fat, NO MSG - AND you never ever use oil or butter when cooking with it.

          It's VERSATILE. You can stir-fry, marinade, baste, BBQ, slow cook, - ANYTHING - with OISHI Sauce and you'll get a different flavour with each item. Use it with ANY meat, fish, seafood, vegetables, fruits or simply enjoy it as a dipping sauce .

          It is a soy based product which is low in sodium, carbohydrates, calories and this family recipe was created in Japan over 100 years ago which accounts for it's uniqueness.

          Because of it's gentle flavour it's a terrific canvas for adding ginger, hot mustard, chili peppers, maple syrup, etc., to create your own highly personal preferences.

            Marketers need to learn to spell the word "its." Along with everybody else :)

        It is made by a PEI company, I bought some there. It is as has been said a variant soy sauce. It is priced very high, likey to try and establish the prodect as somewhat gourmet, and exclusive. It is overpriced by 100% or more, IMO.
