vegetarian oyster sauce

I am searching for a kosher vegetarian oyster sauce with a hechsher. I'm sure that anything called oyster sauce wouldn't have a hechsher even if it is vegetarain, but is there anything with a different name? I purchased something in Israel, but i am unable to get it in the states. I've made it from scratch, but I would prefer something that is already prepared.
If we tell you Sharon, will you serve it at 2nd Avenue?
(Sorry, wish I knew. Just wanted to give a shout out to your place).
There's no kosher oyster sauce...unfortunatly even FISH sauce often contains shrimp so that's another product that's "travelin' on traif highway".
Sorry to be the bearer of bad foodie news.
There are a number of sources for Veggie Oyster Sauce and also recipes. Can't tell about the hecksher form the websites, though Roland Food has an office in NYC.I couldn't fit all the info, but you can email me directly. email@example.com

I've also been searching for Kosher oyster-style sauce.
While we search, could you please share your recipe with us? Thanks.
I don't want to send you on a wild goose chase, so hold on until I found the card from the vegetarian grocery store in Chinatown in Manhattan. I bought a bottle of vegetarian oyster sauce there. They had more than one brand, and I want to say that I saw one that was Kosher, but, I can't be 100% sure.
Do you remember where in Israel you got that oyster sauce? Do you know the brand name by any chance?
