How to buy oyster sauce

Oyster sauce is something we've always had in our fridge condiment shelf.  Growing up my mom used it with a little water and corn starch (or tapioca powder) to incorporate a thick, savory sauce for any classic Chinese-inspired dish.  Finding a brand of oyster sauce is a bit more of a personal preference rather than a quality game like fish sauce.  In the same way you have your favorite flavor of potato chip, you will probably have a favorite brand of oyster sauce.

Currently my favorite has been the Thai brand below.  It has a great flavor when used on just veggies and the price is right.  Its an easy and delicious solution to the weeknight meal (and lunch leftovers the next day).
