Kecap Manis Kecap Manis

Kecap Manis is a thick and syrupy sweet soy sauce that comes from Indonesia (the salty soy sauce is called Kecap asin). Sweetened with palm sugar and flavored with star anise and other Oriental spices, its flavor is more complex than ordinary soy sauce. It’s great as a dipping sauce but works equally well as a marinade.
