Restaurant inspections, Hong Kong Buffet

The food permit of Hong Kong Buffet, 5905 Jimmy Carter Blvd., Norcross, was suspended last week because of a second failing routine inspection this year.

Hong Kong Buffet scored a 44 on Wednesday and management was forced to close the facility and give it a thorough cleaning before re-opening.

The inspector found several roaches on the prep cooler table, the wall at the drink station, ice bin and front prep cooler used for storage.

Dead roaches were also found in the storage prep cooler, and near the drink station and wall behind the drink station, indicating they were not removed once dead, according to the inspection report.

There were fly traps near a prep table leading to the dining area. Cans of Raid and Real Kill were being stored among the equipment and dining area storage. The state health code allows only the use of licensed pest control services, not commercial products.

In addition, there was rust buildup on the prep table, cooler and some shelves. Grease buildup, food debris and dirt were noted throughout the kitchen area. The inspector said the facility had not been regularly cleaned.

Hong Kong Buffet was cleaned on Thursday while closed to the public, said an employee at the restaurant.

Other code violations included some food temperatures that were out of range, food separation problems in the walk-in cooler and dented cans of vegetables and sauces.

Hong Kong Buffet received a 68 on its previous routine inspection in August, then rebounded with a 100 during a follow-up visit.
