Washing of dishes (and hands) causes low scores, but no failures
There were more than a dozen perfect scores in this week’s Restaurant Report Card. However, dishwashers seem to be a cause of common issues for a few local restaurants this week.
The lowest score was found was in Chattanooga on Amnicola Highway. Dos Amigo's Mexican Restaurant scored a 71. Reasons included dishwashing machine not working, the hand sink was also not working properly which meant the staff was not able to wash hands. Considering that issue, an employee returned to kitchen from outside and failed to wash hands. An inspector also found the screen door needs to be repaired. According to an inspection report the screen was not fully in place which could allow flies and rodents to enter kitchen when outside door left open.
Kumo One on East Brainerd Road scored an 81. Reasons included staff not familiar with proper cold food holding temperatures. There was no soap at the dishwashing machine, but the machine was still being used. Also, a sushi chef used same gloved hands to scoop crumbs and wasabi to also complete making sushi rolls. Inspectors noted that the chef should use utensils when scooping from containers of ingredients to avoid cross contamination. Inspectors also noticed an ice scoop handle down in the ice as well.
In north Georgia, Little Tokyo on Walnut Square Blvd. scored an 81. Violations included no sanitizer in cloth buckets. There was unapproved bug spray found. Inspectors noted they should only use insecticides approved for use with commercial food service. It was corrected during the inspection.
