MoC MoC - Princeton, NJ
Zelda and I stopped in over the weekend to check out MoC MoC, and see what all the buzz was about after a quick stop at the Princeton Corkscrew for a 1/2 bottle of 2007 Domaine Corsin Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes to enjoy with our sushi.
Walked up to the restaurant and the first thing we noticed on the exterior of the restaurant was the fresh stone facade. Upon walking in, you see the decor, from the nice, dark, fresh hardwood, to the scrolling slats of wood white and dark twisting and turning up the walls and across the ceiling. You can tell that they spend some time working on the decor of the restaurant, and I think it came out nice. Realistically speaking though, had a friend not mentioned this restaurant, we never would have known it was even here as this is not a street we drive down often.
There were 3-4 other tables seated, and a few more tables came in as we dined. They definitely get some traffic in here, and for good reason as the fish is good, and fresh as well. Maybe they need a stand up sign or something on Nassau Street so more people know it's here, but they seem to be doing just fine.
Service was prompt as we sat, our wine was opened, and we were brought some moist towlettes to wash our hands. Water glasses were brought over along with menu's, and we started looking to see what we should have.
I opted for my staple, the shrimp tempura roll, which was similar to other places, and just plain tasty. I went for the Transformer roll as well consisting of tuna, salmon, and white tuna, which was fried and topped with a nice spicy sauce of sorts. This was a big roll, and worth every penny of the $14 they charge for it. I thought it was absolutely delicious, and would definitely order it again.
Zelda opted for a spicy salmon roll, as well as a Boston roll, and these too were good. the fish had great colors, and I really enjoyed the spicy mayo that this we served with.
All in all, another great Chowhound selection, and it made for an enjoyable afternoon with my gorgeous bride in lovely Princeton. We'll be back for certain, so thanks to the other Chowhounds on here for the suggestion! Cheers!

Born in Illinois, I spent my younger years as a local Chicago Foodie checking out restaurants in the city, and working as a waiter at many of the finest restaurants in the suburbs of Chicago. Look for me visiting a restaurant near you, or at one of the many local wine offlines throughout New Jersey
