The three not-so-great inspections in West Boca were for La Casa de Peinado on 441 near Sandalfoot (13 violations), China Wok in Sandalfoot Square (10 violations) and Tulip Mediterranean near Home Depot (10 violations).

Casa de Peinado was keeping potato salad and beet salad at temperatures near 80 degrees instead of the required 41 degrees. China Wok had a vacuum breaker problem, and their fried rice had to be thrown out for improper temperature. Tulip had problems with their dishwashing machine and had an expired license.

Other inspections were pretty good. Orient Garden on 441 had 4 violations. Thick and Thin Pizza in Sandalfoot Square had 3 in a licensing inspection. The new Greco on 441 near Sandalfoot had just 2 minor violations.

The best inspection this week was for Kingdom Acai on 441 near the Sandalfoot Cumberland Farms. They were perfect – zero violations.
