Real Soy Sauce in YYC?
At home (Virginia, USA), I would buy regionally-made soy sauce. It was fermented in bourbon barrels. It was SO good. All I have found here is the fake stuff -- with MSG and other preservatives and often not actually fermented.
Has anyone found realllllly awesome soy sauce in Calgary?
Braggs is widely available and contains no preservatives. They take pride in the fact that it is not fermented.
Tamari type soys are also widely available. I do not know if any are fermented but they typically contain some alcohol and no other preservatives.
Go to Arirang Oriental Food Store, it is a Japanese-Korean store with a wide variety of products not available elsewhere in Calgary (to my knowledge anyway). While you are there grab some buldak from Olive Chicken in the same strip mall. It's fantastic.
Girlfoody, go to Community Natural Foods and ask for Nama Shoyu. It is naturally fermented and aged for two years. All ingedients are organic. It is not regional since it's made in Japan, but it is hands down the best soya sauce I've ever eaten. I've been using it for about 20 years. If they don't have it, there are other natural types of soya sauce at Community Natural Foods.
Also try Planet Organic Foods.
