Where to buy Kimlan soy sauce?

Does anybody know a specific store where I can buy this brand of dark soy sauce. I realize it would probably be easiest to find in an Asian market, but is there a specific store or market where someone has seen it recently. I've tried all of my neighborhood stores.

Alternatively, does anybody know any other brand of soy sauce (not Kikkoman) that is readily available and is more sweet than salty?

  1. I am 99% sure that you can get this at either Kam Man on Canal, or at New York Mart on Mott.
    Alternatively, it is sold on Amazon.

    New York Mart
    128 Mott St, New York, NY 10013

      Thanks. I never really go to Chinatown but according to Yelp those do seem like good places to start looking. I'll check them out.

        I am 100% sure they have it at Kam Man since I just bought it there myself a few days ago. As everyone has said any Asian grocery will carry this.

      3. Hong Kong Supermarket on Hester St. stocks it. For your sweet soy sauce, look into Lee Kum Kee. (It's my favorite easily available brand and looks like this: HK Supermarket stocks Lee Kum Kee, as well.

        1. You can get Kimlan at pretty much any food store in Chinatown. Hong Kong Supermarket is always a good place to start. As far as getting dark soy sauce or kecap manis at your local grocery store is concerned, I don't think Southeast Asian cuisine is that mainstream yet. I've always had to go to an Asian grocer to replenish my stocks.

          1. Thanks everyone, I picked up some Kimlan and Lee Kum Kee at Kan Man today.
