Where's the Soy Sauce?

You're not going to believe this, but I have yet to see anyone using soy sauce in Shanghai. At home, soy sauce is a staple condiment on the table at any self-respecting Chinese restaurant. But here in Shanghai it is conspicuously absent.

Que?!! How is that possible? Is it a japanese thing then? I know it is used all over japan...

They use it all over Vietnam too. Maybe Shanghai is an anomaly & the rest of China really does use it. I'll know more when I do a bit of traveling around China in October.
