A sushi restaurant in Suwanee recently had its food permit suspended after receiving a second health score in the 40s.
A Gwinnett County inspector said Yuka Roll and Pho, 1197 Old Peachtree Road, posted its third violation of not keeping food protected from cross contamination.
During the routine inspection, multiple foods were uncovered in the cooler and freezer. Raw fish was stored in the same container as cooked shrimp and prepared fish cakes. The food prep sink was being used to thaw raw tuna and cool cooked scallops. And soap was on the sink’s drain board next to the food.
The restaurant was given a failing score of 45/U. It posted a 49/U on a routine inspection in March.
Among other code violations, points were taken off because there were no parasite destruction documents for fish served raw or undercooked in the sushi.
The restaurant menus are misleading and need changing, the inspector said. Multiple listings include the words “crab” or “crab meat,” but the restaurant only serves imitation crab. The current menus also don’t indicate which items are served raw or undercooked.
Yuka Roll and Pho must pass a follow-up inspection before re-opening. Management was unavailable for comment.
In other news, several recently featured restaurants pulled their scores back up with follow-up inspections.
Abdullah the Butcher, 2387 Fairburn Road, Atlanta, scored an 83/B. Café Bombay, 1622 Woodcliff Drive, Atlanta, scored a 91/A. El Granero Taqueria, 1092 Jonesboro Road, McDonough, scored an 82/B.
Here are other recent inspection scores from area restaurants.
