How Clean Our Area Restaurants Are – 6 27 17 – Daytona Beach News-Journal

……New Smyrna Beach’s Joy Luck Garden, an Asian restaurant, tallied 33 high-priority violations since 2016, the most in Volusia County. A constant issue was raw meats stored over vegetables or already cooked food. This may not carry as high an ick factor as the presence of bugs or rodents, but it has the potential to cause food-borne illness because of cross contamination, Murphy said.

Repeated attempts to reach the restaurant’s owner went unanswered. On its latest inspection in February, the restaurant had no violations…..

…  Chases on the Beach in New Smyrna Beach was temporarily closed Wednesday after more than 60 rodent droppings were found, including one on a chicken wing, and two in a plastic container with wasabi. The restaurant met inspection standards Thursday, though several droppings were still discovered after a thorough cleaning. It has since reopened, and a manager said the owner has no comment….

…. The Boston Fish House in New Smyrna Beach had 25 high-priority violations. It was temporarily closed in December because of rodent droppings and several other offenses, including not keeping cheese, clams, beans and other food cold enough. Since then, it has met standards during its two most recent inspections….

…. Two other New Smyrna Beach restaurants, Cafe Heavenly and That’s Amore, each racked up 22 high-priority violations. Cafe Heavenly, which sells gourmet wraps and sandwiches, was cited twice for not discarding food — such as black bean soup, pastrami and wings — that had been opened or prepared more than seven days before. Some rodent droppings were also found. On its latest inspection in February, it met safety standards….

… And That’s Amore, which serves Italian food, battled with rodents last year. In a March 2016 report, an inspector recorded dozens of droppings, even going as far as to characterize them, “based on observations and pressing,” as a mixture of dull, shiny and hard. The owners closed down voluntarily and pressure-washed it, reopening the next day after another inspection. Two weeks later, fewer droppings were found but “rodent activity” was still present, according to the report. A small number of droppings were found again in August, though no rodent activity was detected. In its latest inspection in February, no rodent-related violations were found, and the restaurant met standards….

…More recently, Mi Mexico Mexican Restaurant in New Smyrna Beach was temporarily closed on March 28th after it racked up nine high-priority violations, which included several live roaches and rodent droppings. It also had not properly kept cold raw meat, fish and chicken….
