An Early Look at Moksa's Dumpling, Noodle, and Rice-filled Menu

As is typical when it comes to restaurant openings, Patricia Yeo’s highly anticipated izakaya, Moksa, is a bit behind its targeted December schedule.

A peek at the forthcoming Central Square spot’s website today, however, revealed an exciting gem that we hope means that they will open soon: the menu is up!

As we’ve told you before, there’s vast variety of Asian-influenced small plates, ranging from noodle dishes to dumplings to grilled meat and vegetable skewers. The dishes that we’re most excited to try? That would have to be a four-way tie between the shrimp-shimeji wontons, pork rillette and scallop-stuffed roti (a type of Indian flatbread), kimchi noodle “knots” with seafood, and rice with clay pot-baked chicken, sausage, and salt fish. Ok, actually, we just want to try the whole menu. Below, get a look at the menu in its entirety.
