Ajinomoto Sarsaya Oyster Sauce: Transforming Ordinary Dishes into Gourmet Masterpieces

For most home buddies and moms like me, cooking is a passion. It entails tedious preparations, careful planning and perfect execution to be able to whip up something that the family or loved ones can enjoy. 

However, with busy schedules and tons of things to do around the house the usual consideration when cooking at home is to prepare dishes that are easier to cook that sometimes quality and taste are compromise.

Good thing that they are ways to level-up home cooking and it is as easy as adding a unique savory flavor to any dishes. Turning ordinary dishes into something extra special is now hassle free with the newest Ajinomoto product called SARSAYA OYSTER SAUCE. All it takes sometimes is adding one simple ingredient such as Sarsaya Oyster Sauce to transform ordinary dishes into gourmet home cooked meals.

In the recent Ajinomoto Philippines press conference held at the hip Madison 101 Hotel in Aurora Blvd. Q.C., Ajinomoto finally launches Ajinomoto Sarsaya Oyster Sauce and introduced Coco Martin as the celebrity endorser for this product. 

Ajinomoto Sarsaya Oyster Sauce is an amazing seasoning that passionate home cook and even newbies in the kitchen can use to level-up the taste of regular dishes into gourmet food that is full of flavor.
