Cockroaches and rodents in Miami Florida restaurants

The sick and shutdown list returns from a tech-enforced hiatus and this week we have something new and unique added to the list of violations: rice in a bucket that once contained pool sanitizer (not food grade storage). This did not happen in the same place where two flies were in the panko.

So let’s get to the list of restaurants in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Palm Beach-Florida Keys area that didn’t have their things up to snuff when the inspectors arrived.

The rules of this game: The following comes from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s restaurant inspections in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Monroe counties. A restaurant that fails the examination remains closed until the examination is passed.

If you see a problem and want to inspect the place, contact DBPR. We do not control who is inspected nor how carefully the inspector performs.

We do not include all violations, only the most impactful, whether internal or animate (because they are alive or were once alive). Some irregularities are corrected after the inspector points them out. But you have to ask why there are violations in the first place? How long would they have been without the inspection?

In alphabetical order…

Accessible coolers worked better as cockroach slicers than food coolers, seeing how chicken, turkey, cabbage, and bananas in coolers were warm more than 10 degrees. Stop sales everywhere.

When the inspector came back for a recheck Friday, the inspector saw live cockroaches on the wall of the mop sink, in an accessible cooler gasket and in an unused cooler. The manager killed the cockroaches and removed the coolant from the restaurant, but the inspector still deposited it.
