Soy Vay Orange Ginger Marinade & Sauce
Soy Vay was founded in 1980 when a man and a woman came together to create a unique marinade. They wanted to pay homage to his Jewish background and her Chinese roots, and they found a way to balance their two cultures in Soy Vay! In this marinade, the marriage of orange and ginger provides sweetness, zest, and a delightful kick. It can be used to marinade meats or even vegetables, to take a basic stir fry to the next level, or on its own as a dipping sauce for egg rolls, wings, or whatever you’d like!

Angelo Pietro Ginger Dressing

The business wasn’t originally focused on salad dressings, but parents quickly began to shower the restaurant with praise. Children who normally refused to eat salads and vegetables would devour their healthy dinners, but only if they were given Angelo Pietro’s salad dressing! Parents quickly began ordering the dressing to go, and the Pietro salad dressing craze began. Now, Pietro dressings are the best-selling soy dressings in Japan.
