Closure Date: 05-02-2019
Happy Kitchen’s violations pretty much ran the gamut, from a bathroom that was not clean to grease buildup on non-food surfaces and employees’ personal items stored with or above food. And then there were the high-priority offenses: “live, small flying insects in food preparation areas or food storage area” and a live fly on a cutting board; “presence of insects, rodents or other pests,” including “dead bugs in flour;” “roach activity as evidenced by live roaches found” (11 of them, if the inspectors’ count is correct, plus 23 dead ones).
The inspection resulted in 22 separate violations in all, out went the emergency order and the restaurant remained closed the following day when a call-back inspection took place. An extension was granted, with yet another inspection required.
