August 2 RESTAURANT REPORT: Flying Squirrels score inspection home runs

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - In this Restaurant Report, we presented the NBC12 Hall of Fame Award to some chefs that have really been hitting it out of the park on their health inspections. But first, two Asian restaurants take steps to correct their criticals.

Teppanyaki Grill and Buffet, 9043 West Broad Street in Henrico had 5 critical violations on a recent health inspection. The inspector noted that some meat cleavers on the wall rack were soiled to sight and touch. They were then cleaned. Teppanyaki only had one critical on a follow-up inspection two days later, that there was still no documentation to show parasite destruction for some of the fish on the sushi bar.

Just down the road at 6215 West Broad Street in Henrico, Vietnam One had 4 critical violations. The report says shrimp and sprouts were sitting out at elevated temperatures when they should have been kept cold. That and other violations were corrected during the inspection. Vietnam One had a perfect score on its check-up a month later.

You can buy yourself some peanuts and cracker jacks at the ballpark. We presented the NBC12 Hall of Fame Award to the Richmond Flying Squirrels concessions at the Diamond. They've been hitting home runs on inspections since the Squirrels started playing there three seasons ago.

Said Todd "Parney" Parnell, Squirrels Vice-President, "They do a wonderful job. They don't get enough credit so we're very honored and flattered that you guys are awarding them with this Hall of Fame Award and we're very appreciative of it."

An impressive record for a staff of 90 who make nacho's, pizza, and hot dogs for thousands of fans.
