Sergio Salvador salvadorphoto.com Restaurant Review Dahlia’s Central Mexican Cuisine Rio Rancho’s queen of carne 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. Learn Acequia Talk and Walks Saturday, June 24: 9-11:30am Holy Family Parish
