Health Inspectors Find Flies, Roaches and Other Critters In Three Restaurants
The Florida Department of Business and Regulation seems to have had a quiet week. Though Health Inspectors didn't shut down any restaurants for violations, that doesn't mean that we didn't uncover some pretty disgusting findings like live flies, small flying insects, live roaches and even trapped birds. The offenders are:
Fu Wa Chinese Restaurant
2465 NW 40 Ave
Lauderhill, FL 33313
An inspection on 1/13/20 found two live roaches in the ladies room and "objectionable" odors in the men's bathroom. Inspectors also found a wall soiled with accumulated food debris in the kitchen and meat being stored in boxes on the floor.

An inspection on 1/18/2010 found some dead or trapped birds, insects, rodents, or other pests in the kitchen light shield. Inspectors also observed small flying insects in bar area and live flies in the kitchen around the dishwashing area.
