Chuan Cai Wang Food, which does business as Chuan Lu Garden, was forced to temporarily close its popular restaurant along Colonial Drive last week after a health inspector cited 25 violations.
According to a report from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, the restaurant, which is located at 1101 E Colonial Drive, was shut down on Friday, February 25, after a health inspector found 13 basic, 6 intermediate, and 6 high priority violations.
Among the issues were rodent activity, as the inspector found approximately 68 rodent droppings all around the kitchen and storage areas in the restaurant.
The inspector found that food was being improperly stored, citing multiple instances in which raw meat was next to uncooked produce.
Upon reinspection on the following day, Saturday, February 26, the restaurant was permitted to reopen after only six violations remained.
