History: This was its first regularly scheduled inspection.
What the inspector saw: The inspector noted 15 priority violations, three times the minimum necessary for a failing probationary rating. Those included an employee picking up a lid off the floor and returning to work without washing their hands or replacing their gloves, a handsink with no soap or paper towels, raw shell eggs stored over vegetables, an employee failing to sanitize dishes, cooking equipment with food debris, an employee striking the inside of a garbage can with an horchata strainer before rinsing it with water and storing it as clean, inadequate food cooling practices, food stored without preparation dates, and live roaches “in all stages of life” throughout the restaurant.
Follow-up: The restaurant failed a follow-up inspection on April 3.
Response: A message was left for an owner or manager, but was not returned by deadline.
