Restaurant inspections, Nanoom To Go

Nanoom To Go was shuttered for the third time this year by Gwinnett County health officials after the restaurant failed another routine inspection.

The Korean restaurant at 3312 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Duluth, continues to have problems storing and covering food to prevent cross contamination of bacteria. It received a health score of 54/U on the recent inspection.

Multiple raw meats, seafood and eggs were stored above sauces, rice and kimchi in the cooler. Multiple containers of rice and kimchi were also uncovered and subject to overhead contamination, the inspector said.

Points were also taken off because some cooked radish leaves and rice were cooling improperly at room temperature. The rice, which was tightly covered with plastic wrap, was unwrapped and moved to the cooler. The radish leaves were discarded.

Raw chicken was improperly thawing at room temperature. It was also moved to the cooler.

In other violations, several utensils and other equipment stored clean had food and grease buildup.

Nanoom’s owner, Soo Jun Lee, told the inspector that the facility was closed for cleaning and food was not being prepared at that time. It had been taken out for cleaning, he said.

The restaurant will have to pass a follow-up inspection before the food permit is re-instated. It was also closed in February and in March after failing consecutive routine inspections.
