Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Cockroaches in the kitchen is just one of the many violations that have resulted in the closure of Yummy House located near Tropicana Avenue and Nellis Boulevard.
The Southern Nevada Health District recently paid a visit to the restaurant and slapped it with 56 demerits.
Anything over 40 demerits results in automatic closure. And two weeks after the inspection, the restaurant is still closed.
Violations included: at least one employee not washing hands properly; blockage in hand sink; hand sink was leaking; pink, slimy growth found on inside of ice machine; and a white, fuzzy, mold-like growth on produce.
In addition, some food was stored at the wrong temperatures, including beef, shrimp, bean sprouts and cabbage. Plus, there was no working thermometer in the refrigerator.
Containers of food were also not labeled properly and some were stored on the floor. Containers were double stacked and missing lids. Also, equipment including metal pans were severely dented and the staff was reusing single-use plastic cups.
The Health Department also noted on their report that there were holes in the ceiling and the walls.
Action News attempted to contact the owners/management for comment but were unable to.
The Health District is reporting that the owners have decided to close indefinitely and are not sure if they will reopen.
