MoMo Hibachi & Sushi’s building on the corner of 10th Street and Caddo Street

Momo Hibachi & Sushi will be closing this Saturday after a year and one month of service to the people of Arkadelphia.
According to Cindy Devine, who has worked there since the beginning, the restaurant’s owners all decided to close down after one of the partners had an issue in his personal life that needed to be addressed. Devine is originally from Indonesia, and plans to look for work in Little Rock once Momo closes its doors for the last time.
Before Momo occupied the building on the corner of 10th Street and Caddo Street in Arkadelphia, the property was home to an Italian restaurant named Italian Cuisine. Throughout the years there have been Mexican restaurants and several Chinese places in the location as well, not to mention a daycare once. Despite the popularity and reputation of some of these eateries, nothing has remained in the building for very long.
It might have been short, but it was good while it lasted. If you want to say goodbye to Momo with one more order of sushi, you’d better hurry. They’re open daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 9 p.m. until Saturday.
