Moko and Fuji at Kendall fill neighborhoods’ sushi gaps

A review of two new sushi restaurants serving Japanese, Korean, and Chinese fare

Recently, a friend showed me a photo he took near his South Boston apartment. “This sums up the new Southie,” he said with a laugh. The image was of a morning-after stoop, decorated with a black smudge where a cigarette had been extinguished, next to an empty, single-serve carton of Imagine organic creamy butternut squash soup.

True enough. Also summing up today’s Southie: Moko, a new Japanese and Korean restaurant that has been an instant hit. The neighborhood is hungry for sushi, and more — here there is a market for an increasing diversity of restaurants. (One can only eat so many shrimp and lobster sauce burritos at LeeChen’s Mexican Grill & Chinese Food.)
