    Very good, all-purpose sauce. Use sesame oil if serving with more delicate dumplings.

    Great all purpose dipping sauce. We use it for everything from tempura to spring rolls. Just enough sweet to cut through the salty soy without being overly sweet. Good stuff!

    We love this dipping sauce! It is perfect with Chinese dumplings, but I've also been known to use it with homemade fish cakes and rice. Very easy and delicious.

    This was the perfect compliment to the pork and shrimp dumplings. I added both the sesame oil and chili oil.
