History: Since 2014, the food truck has had a mixed inspection record, including one previous failed inspection and another that found an imminent health hazard, which results in immediate closure.
What the inspector saw: The inspector noted nine priority violations, including an employee using hand sanitizer instead of washing their hands, a blocked hand sink, foods not being kept above established temperatures, a cooler not keeping foods below established temperatures, pigeons and their droppings in and around the food truck and no sanitizer test strips.
Follow-up: The food truck passed an April 4 follow-up inspection.
Response: Owner Diego Valencia said several of the violations had to do with the carelessness of an employee, and that all employees have been instructed on basic food safety. The other problems were also quickly resolved. As to the pigeons, Valencia said they now keep the doors closed to keep out any unwanted birds.
