To showcase the versatility of Ajinomoto’s latest product, Chef Mcrhyan Rodrigo had a live cooking demo. He showed guests how to whip up his two favorite Filipino dishes, Ginisarsayang Kangkong with Tokwa and Thai-style Stir-fried Chicken, using Sarsaya Oyster Sauce. What he was cooking smelled so good, especially the Ginisarsayang Kangkong with Tokwa, which the guests got to sample afterwards.

Also in a cookoff where Coco Martin served as judge, bloggers Macy Santos and Tina Perez discovered how Sarsaya Oyster Sauce can make simple dishes extra special and flavorful.

Truth be told, Ajinomoto couldn’t have chosen a better endorser for Sarsaya Oyster Sauce than Coco Martin. It is common knowledge that the Primetime King is a big fan of his grandmother’s cooking. He also graduated with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

    Oyster sauce is such a miracle ingredient. I use it in my pancit and it will taste good at an instant. Will check out the Ajinomoto brand the next time I head to the grocery.

  4. Malot says:

    I try to make sure that we always have oyster sauce in the pantry. I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about Ajinomoto’s Sarsaya though, and I’m starting to get curious about it. I’ll remember to put one in my shopping cart next time I’m out shopping for groceries. Thanks for sharing, Mommy Tetcha! 🙂

  5. Shalene R says:

    I love cooking with oyster sauce. Kahit simpleng fried tilapia, just make a sauce using oyster sauce, tomatoes, ginger, pepper, and sugar — yummier na! I’ll try this brand and check if it tastes better than what I use in the kitchen. At si Coco Martin pa ang endorser, haha mapapabili ka talaga 🙂

  6. Mommy Levy says:

    There are a lot of brands of Oyster sauce in the market nowadays. As a pioneer of umami, I wonder why Ajinomoto took so long to come up with their own version.

  7. How does it compare with Lee Kum Kee?

  8. Maan says:

    I didn’t know Coco Martin has an HRM degree! He’s the perfect endorser indeed! Curious to try the oyster sauce, too.

  9. Josephine says:

    Another Sarsaya post! 🙂 Now, I dhould really head on to the market for me to finally try this oyster sauce! 🙂

  10. Nini Perez says:

    I usually get Mama Sita’s. But i’m willing to try this brand. After all, Ajinomoto had been in the biz for quite sometime. Buying this for the next grocery batch because my husband loves ginisa dishes. 🙂

  11. Chessy says:

    Okay pala because it is available in sachets and the one with a twisty cap. I hope there are copies of the recipes shared during the event!

  12. RJ Dancel says:

    Gosh! Coco Martin! But yay for sharing this! We use it at home and it makes every dish better 🙂

  13. Tried this brand and it indeed can replace the brand I was used to. It gives the same savory taste and the texture I would want for our dish. I also love that it comes in an easy to squeeze pack. Before, I was all nanghihinayang as I accidentally dropped a newly bought oyster sauce. The bottle was quite heavy. Now, no more heavy.bottle to deal.with.

  14. Never tried this brand yet but it sure do seems to be promising in taste too. Would love to try one soon! 🙂

  15. Badet Siazon says:

    I’m using a different brand of oyster sauce. Will try this one, buti na lang may sachet sila..

  16. Abby says:

    I’m using a different brand of Oyster sauce but this event make me interested to try Ajinomoto’s haha

  17. Too bad I missed this event but I’m gonna try Sarsaya Oyster sauce on my next recipe.

  18. Joy says:

    I use oyster sauce in a lot of my recipes including adobo, I’ll try sarsaya next! 🙂

  19. Michelle says:

    Oyster sauce is also a staple in our kitchen. Masarap ang gulay kapag may oyster sauce. I guess I will try Sarsaya next time!

  20. Janice says:

    I love oyster sauce but have yet to try this brand. Will check it out next time I’m at the supermarket.

  21. Ayi says:

    I can just imagine the kilig of everyone who attended when they saw Coco Martin :)) I use a different brand but for the sake of trying, sige na nga :))

  22. Macy Santos says:

    I agree totally that by far Ajinomoto’s Sarsaya Oyster Sauce is the best in the market. Been using this before I get to meet Coco..and been selling the ‘tingi” sachet pack at my tiny store and it’s always sold out. What I like about it- it’s flavorful, economical and practical.

  23. Denice says:

    I’ve read a lot of positive posts about Sarsaya. Makes me want to try it or make hubby try it because he’s the better cook. Haha!

  24. We always welcome products that make eating a more pleasurable experience for the family.

  25. TweenselMom says:

    There are competing brands when it comes to Oyster sauce but this one’s the most affordable.

  26. Oh, Coco! 🙂 I’ve not yet tried this brand. It looks promising though.
