Mar y Tierra at 2722 50th Street had 10 critical violations.

  • A large container of menudo was not properly cooled and had to be discarded. 
  • Beans were between 42-46 degrees, raw chicken was found at 69 degrees and sliced tomatoes were 80 degrees, almost double the safe temperature of 41 degrees.

  • Menudo, shredded chicken and beef were not date marked. 
  • A hand wash sink did not have hand towels.

The inspector observed multiple unclean food contact surfaces including:

  • Heavily soiled potato grater.
  • Soiled bins for sliced tomatoes, avocados and jalapeno's.
  • Inside of sugar and flour bins were soiled.
  • Soiled spatulas and utensils.
  • Chipped plates and bowls.

The restaurant does not have a Heimlich chart nor does it have disclosures or advisories regarding the consumption of undercooked eggs, beef or raw oysters.

We tried contacting management at Mar y Tierra, they did not return our phone call.  The report shows most violations were corrected while the inspector was present.
