Whether you eat in or take out, Moko in South Boston delivers on fresh, creative sushi at a reasonable price.
On a recent trip, I not only dove into familiar standbys like shrimp tempura roll, spicy tuna hand roll, and California roll, but also branched out to try some new items. For sushi, I tried the Tornado roll, which had spicy crab stick, tobiko, scallions, & spicy sauce on the top, with
shrimp tempura, avocado, cucumber inside. A lot going on but good eats. I was most impressed, however, by the Mandoo Guk – a massive bowl of soup with a clearish broth, dumplings, fried egg and shredded beef. That alone could have served for dinner!
Like nearly every restaurant in Southie, Moko has two televisions tuned to sports channels, so you’re sure not to miss whatever game is currently on. But, with about 10 tables in the whole restaurant, Moko can still deliver on an intimate setting perfect for date night or family dinners.
