A state health inspector visited the Bonfire Mongolian Grill in Hermitage Tuesday afternoon and found a restaurant without any managerial control of the kitchen with multiple priority violations, putting the public at risk. The inspector’s final report, which gave the restaurant a score of 62, notes the hand sink was blocked with work utensils, raw chicken stored above other food, and a dish machine that had no chlorine to sanitize the dishes. The restaurant will use a manual three-compartment sink until this is remedied.
Food, including Tofu, bean sprouts, and baby cord, was found at improper temperatures, resulting in ten pounds of embargoed product. Cans of “hot-shot” and “RAID” were located in the kitchen, and fly strips were hanging above the dish area. The ice machine reportedly had a “black mold-like build-up.”
