Paris Banh Mi temporarily closed after failed health inspection

A popular Vietnamese sandwich and coffee shop near downtown Orlando was temporarily closed last week after failing a food health inspection.

Paris Banh Mi, which is located at 1021 E Colonial Drive, was temporarily shuttered on Monday, April 25, after a health inspector with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation cited nearly two dozen health code violations during a random visit.

Among the violations were ten considered high priority, including approximately 50 flying insects in the kitchen and food preparation areas. Nearly a dozen rodent droppings were also found near the back door of the restaurant. Additionally, multiple food storage and temperature issues were cited, including raw meats stored next to produce.

Upon reinspection on the following day, Tuesday, April 26, the restaurant was not permitted to reopen on account of multiple violations still present.

After a third inspection on April 26, the restaurant was permitted to reopen with only four basic violations remaining.
