  1. It's interesting how people in different countries cook with the same ingredient. When I stir fry vegetable, I usually just mix it with a little bit of salt in the end instead of soy sauce. I will try the soy sauce next time.

  2. Yah, we use soy sauce in almost every meal. Let us know how you like it!
