Close down dirty eater­ies per­ma­nently

New Straits Times - - Letters -

THE Pe­nang Health De­part­ment and the Pe­nang Is­land City Coun­cil car­ried out in­spec­tions on three eater­ies in Pe­nang Road on March 13.

Two restau­rants were or­dered to close for two weeks. A dead rat was found in one of the restau­rants, as well as rat drop­pings, cock­roaches and dirty toi­lets in both eater­ies.

The third restau­rant was fined RM1,000 for hav­ing a dirty kitchen. It was also is­sued a RM250 com­pound for not us­ing a grease trap, and RM90 for fail­ing to vac­ci­nate three work­ers.

I vis­ited Pe­nang last May and checked out the three restau­rants, be­fore de­cid­ing on one, which turned out to be a huge dis­ap­point­ment.

The food was be­low av­er­age com­pared with the nasi kan­dar restau­rants that I have tried over the years.
