Hibachi restaurant's owner working to get 'A' rating back

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Jade Hibachi is in University Commons.  Owner Nicholas Carpiel says things at the restaurant were very hectic when the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) dropped in this week for a routine inspection.

"When she came it was very, very busy. There was a line when she came."

Carpiel says that's why some cleaning duties may have slipped through the cracks. The DHEC report shows the inspector found 11 violations. The inspector cited five of those violations for finding dirty spots throughout the kitchen. The report shows the fryer, the food prep area, parts of the wall, shelves and the stove's hood all needed cleaning.

Eagan Gilder buys dinner at Jade on a regular basis.  

"If you've ever been in there and looked at their hood system, it doesn't exactly look like it's been clean on a regular basis," Gilder said.

The report shows other violations were cited for problems with the kitchen sink, not using proper lighting, storing food too close to the ground, and using improper cooking utensils. One critical violation was cited for holding chicken and rice at potentially hazardous temperatures. Jade Hibachi scored an 82, a 'B' rating.

Carpiel says he's fixing the all the problem the inspector pointed out and he and his staff are doing some heavy-duty cleaning. He hopes to change the grade posted on his door very soon.

"There will be a follow up inspection. It will definitely be back to an 'A'," said Carpiel.

Hot Stacks Pancake House in Myrtle Beach aced its recent health inspection. The DHEC report shows the inspector found four violations. The violations were for improperly storing cleaning towels and a cooking utensil, improperly labeling food, and for not having a required sanitizer test kit. Hot Stacks scored a 94, and 'A' rating.
