Meis Kitchen was forced to temporarily close its doors last week after a failed health inspection.
On Friday, August 15, a health code inspector with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation cited over a dozen 14 health code violations at the restaurant, which is located at 10169 University Boulevard in Orlando.
Among the violations were six considered high priority, including the presence of roach activity. According to the inspector’s report, eight live roaches were found around the kitchen, including two behind a rice cooker and two under a table on the cook line.
Additionally, another dozen dead roaches were found around the restaurant, including seven behind a freezer.
The restaurant was permitted to reopen the following day, despite eight violations remaining, including three considered high priority.
According to the restaurant’s social media, the business closed due to a “kitchen equipment gas pipe problem.”
