Restaurant Report Card

Posted: Updated:

It is Tuesday. That means it is time for this week's Restaurant Report Card. We went through health reports over the past couple weeks to find the restaurants with the most violations and one that did not have any.

We begin this week's report at 101 Sushi, right off 45th Street near the Pizza Ranch.

While there were not any major violations, all the violations the restaurant did have were repeated.

The ice scoop handle was touching the ice, instead of being stored on a clean surface. A scoop used for rice was sitting in warm water, but it should have been sitting in ice. A dirty cloth was also on the work table.

The restaurant owner says everyone is working hard to make sure these violations are not happening again, and he is sorry for any mistakes.

Our next restaurant is a popular Chinese place, the Giant Panda.

Here, again, no major violations, just some things that needed fixing and cleaning.

The chest freezer door was broken. Food debris was accumulating on the floor, and the milk dispenser needed cleaning.

We tried talking to the owner here, but he said he did not have time.

The final restaurant is one we have visited before for cleanliness issues, and we found more of the same once again.

Habib Cuisine had all repeat violations dealing with grease build-up in the deep fat fryer, food debris under the stove and food splatter build-up in the microwave.

Once again, we tried speaking to an owner, but one was not available when we stopped by.

We also hand out a Clean Plate award. This week the award goes to Cafe Aladdin.

On its most recent inspection the inspector had nothing to report.

Owner Ahmed Younis says this means a lot to him and his employees because it shows their hard work is paying off, keeping them at the top as far as Greek and middle eastern restaurants go.

"In the business like this in the food industry, it's either you have a clean image and the customers' trust you, or you don't. If you don't, if you lose one of those things, your image or your customers' trust, then you'll no longer be competitive in this business," adds Younis.
