Ewww! According Fox 28, the health department uncovered nearly a dozen critical violations at a Galloway Mexican restaurant, and the Clean Plate Award goes to a campus favorite known for Korean cuisine and sushi. ABC 6 Investigator Tom Sussi is On Your Side with his weekly Dirty Dining Report.
Tre Potrillos, on Galloway Road in Galloway, gets the ABC 6 On Your Side Dirty Dish Award. In its last inspection, the Columbus Public Health Department found 11 critical violations.
- A worker’s opened water bottle sitting in a pan of lettuce.
- Moldy chiles and limes.
- Dirty kitchen utensils and shelves.
- Prepared foods not date marked.
- Servers eye-balled clearing tables and dirty dishes, and handling clean ones, without washing their hands.
On their report, inspectors noted the restaurant fell short on “food safety” practices.
A manager told Sussi they’re working with the health department to correct the violations. He said, “We washed all of the walls and inside the kitchen. The back part of the restaurant we cleaned up, and inside the walk-in cooler. Everything we’ve been cleaning up.”
The health department plans to do a follow-up inspection next week.
The Clean Plate Award goes to Japanese Oriental Restaurant. Three straight inspections without a single critical violations.
Japanese Oriental Restaurant is located at 2283 North High Street near campus. For the past 14 years, the popular restaurant has been serving up Korean specialties and sushi.
