Q: What, exactly, is oyster sauce? Is it really derived from oysters? Is fish sauce truly distilled fish?

Dahlia’s Central Mexican Cuisine
Rio Rancho’s queen of carne
By Ari LeVaux
It’s rare that Mexican food reminds me of my Jewish mother’s cooking, but that’s what happened with a bowl of albóndigas at Dahlia’s. A mildly aromatic broth crowded with chunks of carrot, celery, zucchini and a single large meatball comprised this bowl of Central Mexican comfort food. The meatball’s almost ethereal texture and mellow, satisfying flavor reminded me of mom’s matzo balls.
