In June

History: This was the restaurant’s first routine inspection.

What the inspector saw: The inspector noted about a dozen priority violations, including the person in charge not knowing several key restaurant regulations, a blocked hand sink, tamales whose origin could not be established, no sanitizing solution on site, a reach-in cooler not keeping foods at established temperatures, numerous containers without date marking and no thermometer for checking food temperatures.

Follow-up: The restaurant passed a follow-up inspection on June 15.

Response: Owner Gerardo Ramos said all of the issues were quickly resolved and he has taken a number of measures to ensure there is not another failed inspection.
