The majority of this week's restaurants take us to west Toledo. There are plenty of violations, but also a couple of great reviews.
Magic Wok along Laskey Road had three violations, including one that has been a problem in the past: holding egg rolls below a safe temperature, which could lead to potentially hazardous foods. Inspectors found equipment that is made for a kitchen at home, rather than a restaurant. It was switched right away. Inspectors also want the severely deteriorated cutting boards to be replaced with new ones.
Six violations can be counted at the Hot Sizzling Wok on Laskey. Raw produce was sitting on the floor, which could lead to possible contamination. Several tools were noted in the facility, such as chainsaws and pole trimmers, which are not allowed.
Chinatown, also on Laskey, however, is said to have a full, stocked sink, great hand washing practices, and proper thawing. No violations were found.
The same can be said at Taco Bell. Inspectors said it is clean and well-maintained. They also recognized the restaurant's good date marking.
That's not the case at Pho Vietnam on Upton Avenue. Several foods were not labeled with dates and egg rolls in the freezer were unwrapped and uncovered.
Since its last inspection, Chasers on Dorr Street has added new tile in the bathroom, all food is off the floor, and inspectors believe it has become clean and organized.
