Hung Fu closes after failed health inspection turns up roaches

A local Chinese restaurant was forced to temporarily close its doors after a health inspection turned up multiple code violations, including the presence of roaches.

Hong Fu, which is located at 5601 S Orange Avenue in Orlando, was forced to temporarily close after failing a health inspection on Wednesday, March 22, according to a report filed with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

According to the report, during the inspection, at least 16 health code violations were cited, including two considered high priority.

Among the violations was the presence of roaches, as evidenced by four roaches found at a hand sink near a walk-in cooler.

Additionally, chicken, bean sprouts, and cubed pork were held at greater than 41 degrees Fahrenheit.

The restaurant was inspected again the same day, but required an additional follow-up inspection on Thursday, March 23. It was permitted to reopen on that day, despite 14 violations remaining.
