(WWBT) - A Mexican restaurant had to throw out some refried beans and a Chinese restaurant had to throw out some flies.
In Henrico's West End, Plaza Azteca at 6623 West Broad Street had five priority violations plus five core. The report says the refried beans were not cooled properly.
You might wonder, what's the big deal?
The report says they were made the night before and they were still 50° to 52° degrees because they were four inches deep. The Health Department says if food is not cooled to 41° degrees within six hours, bacteria can grow. The report says management threw them out.
That and three other priority violations were corrected during the inspection.
In Henrico's East End, China House at 4703 East Nine Mile Road had five priority violations, plus ten core. The report says there were several flies in the kitchen, and some food in the walk-in cooler was sitting below a moldy towel.
That and six other violations were corrected during the inspection.
When the inspector returned three days later, the restaurant still had two priority violations, plus six core, including the flies. China House was inspected again two weeks later. The flies were gone and most of the violations were corrected.
We gave the NBC12 Hall of Fame Award to Q Barbeque at 1070 Virginia Center Parkway in Henrico.
The restaurant by Pitmaster Tuffy Stone has aced ten health inspections over the last three years.
