Fulton County health officials recently closed a Chinese restaurant in south Atlanta for failing two inspections within a month.
One Two Chen Restaurant, 5110 Old National Highway, was told to close immediately and not reopen until passing a health inspection.
Among the violations, two packages of bread and a cucumber had mold-like growth. The ice machine had slime buildup inside. Dishes and equipment were not sanitized after cleaning.
Also, safe food temperatures were not being maintained. Raw pork chops and raw meat balls in a cooler were above the maximum temperature for potentially hazardous foods. White rice in a rice cooker was not at the proper hot holding temperature.
Food was also uncovered in the freezer and subject to contamination.
One Two Chen scored a 65/U on the follow-up inspection, after receiving a 62/U on a routine inspection earlier this month.
In other news, the Ru San’s at 1529 Piedmont Road, Atlanta, scored a 94/A on its follow-up inspection, but cannot re-open because the facility still has a roach infestation, according to the Fulton County health inspector.
No food was stored in the facility at the time of the inspection, and the owner said they were going out of business at the end of August, according to the report.
Also, Grand Buffet, 4365 Fulton Industrial Blvd., Atlanta scored a 93/A on its first court-ordered inspection after being shut down by the health department in July.
Here are other recent inspection scores from area restaurants.
