MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Inspectors with the Department of Health and Environmental Control found evidence of some unwanted guests at one Conway restaurant.
We begin this week’s Restaurant Scorecard with Jade Hibachi at 201 Graduate Road in Conway.
Inspectors found scoops in food products with dried-on food matter and grime. They said the scoop in the sugar container had encrusted food matter and the blender was stored dirty.
Health crews said pans of rice were stacked and covered during the cooling process, not allowing for proper airflow for cooling.
The inspection report showed that rodent droppings were found in the back storage area and there was also evidence of rodent nesting.
Health crews found shelves in the walk-in-cooler had an accumulation of mold and grime and fan blade guards had an excessive accumulation of dust.
Inspectors said the cooler had an accumulation of food matter and grime. They added that wire shelving, sides of the cooking equipment, knobs at the hand sink, door handles at the cooler, hood filters and food containers all had a build-up of grease and/or grime.
Walls had an accumulation of splash and grease and floors had a build-up of grime under the equipment and shelving, according to the inspection report.
