Restaurant Report Card: 2.13.2020 Uraku

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (WTVG) - An ice machine found in a restaurant is a lot different than a bag of ice you find in your freezer. However, both your freezer and an industrial grade ice machine can get dirty, and sometimes they need to be replaced.

The ice machine was an issue inside Uraku (Wasabi Blvd, Inc.), 1616 E Wooster St #6 & #7, Bowling Green. During a Standard/Critical Control Point Inspection 30-Jan-2020, the Wood County Health Department noted 23 violations (6 critical & 17 non-critical). For example:

• Build up inside the ice machine. The owner says it is now cleaned, and he is in the process of replacing the machine itself.
• Rice in the prep top cooler at 61 degrees. All food must be held at 41 degrees or below.
• Observed an open egg roll in the same container packaged cream cheese.

Those last two were corrected during the inspection.

13abc spoke with the owner of Uraku over the phone. He told us:

"Most of them are facility problems. There's no problem about the building. It's very old, like 20 years. They just came with a new health inspector and they tried to show to fix it because it's old. ... We didn't say anything to the health department, we are just fixing right now what they ask. ... The food is OK."

A Follow-up Inspection 6-Feb-2020 brought the total number of violations down to 9 (1 critical & 8 non-critical).
