It took a lot of people by surprise to see that Sonic and Corn Dog 7 left their forever spaces in the Food Court of Westgate Mall. There was no drama. They just didn't resign their contract.

Which both leaving has left some empty spaces but Westgate Mall is working on filling those spots up.

What is Moving Into the Food Court?

I made a trip to the mall the other day and had to stop to take some photos. I am excited about this addition. Hidden away in the corner is where I found this in our food court:

Oh, how I love Hibachi. I haven't got in on the Ramen phase yet. I need to try it. I grew up eating, as I called it, oodles of noodles. Yes, the packaged ramen. I know this is tons better. When friends of mine order it oh boy does it look good.

This of course will not be a Hibachi place where they cook in front of you. Sumo has proven that the restaurant can be good without that happening. So I really will be excited to try this place out.

When Will They Be Opening?

They are currently hiring. So that is a good sign that this could be happening soon. They will have to train as well. So hopefully that means in the next couple months. If you are looking for a job you can text (806) 507-0960.

So I will be keeping an eye out for this new place in our Westgate Mall Food Court. I am also excited to see what else will be moving into the empty locations.
