Food for Thought brings out one school, three Top Performers and two Low Performers. Let's see how the cookie crumbles in this week's edition.
McWhorter Elementary School at 2711 1st St. gets zero critical violations this week making them a Food for Thought Top Performer.
Now on to those Top Performing Restaurants. We get this report started where many start their day. Aroma's Coffee Shop at 5109 82nd Street is a Food for Thought Top Performer with zero critical violations.
Let's head to the next spot on the double. Double Dave's at 2102 Broadway brings in a perfect score, which means we'll be tossing a Top Performing certificate their way.
Finally, three perfect scores under one roof--the deli, meat department and grocery department at United at 8010 Frankford all get zero critical violations this week.
Now on to the first of our two Low Performers. IHOP at 1627 University is where five critical violations were found.
The Manager at IHOP told us an inspector had been back to visit the restaurant and that all critical violations have been corrected.
This week's other Low Performer is China Town at 5217 82nd. That's where six critical violations were found. Violations including:
Other violations included vegetables not stored at eat 6 inches from the ground in the bottom of a cooler, soiled hand washing sinks, bulk food that was uncovered, an absorbent shelf that is not easily cleanable being used to store dishes, soiled walls, soiled floors and soiled areas underneath equipment, bowls being used for scoops in bulk food and broken ice scoops.
When NewsChannel 11 called China Town, we were told a manager was not at the restaurant and no one was available for comment.
The inspection report shows five of the six critical violations were corrected on site.
