This is the best brand to go for, when choosing any fish sauce. If you are new to using fish sauce, I highly recommend the Three Crabs Brand. This is one of the most expensive fish sauce on any store shelf, but it is of the highest quality. The smell is not as pungent as other branded fish sauce, it is not overly salty, and it tastes the best. You will always find the Three Crabs Brand in my house.
