A popular restaurant on International Drive failed a health inspection last week due to dozens of flying insects and multiple ingredients held at the wrong temperatures.
The Twin Peaks located at 8350 International Drive in Orlando failed the health inspection on Wednesday, September 20, according to a report by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
During the inspection, at least 20 health code violations were cited, including 3 considered high priority.
Among the high priority violations was the presence of live, small flying insects in the kitchen and food preparation areas. In total, the inspector found more than 80 small flying insects around hot water tanks, in storage areas, and near a soda gun at the bar.
The restaurant was also cited for storing foods at temperatures below 41 degrees, which is required by law. Those items included pico de gallo, sour cream, and butter, which were all held at over 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
The restaurant was reinspected the following day and was cited again for 10 violations, including the presence of small flying insects. It was permitted to reopen, but a follow-up inspection was required.
That follow-up was performed on Friday, Sept. 22, and only 9 violations were found.
