Roaches and hand washing cost restaurant an “A” grade

Restaurant Report Card

Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) inspectors dropped Shuang Xi Chen, on International Boulevard in North Charleston to a “B” in this week’s report card.

According to the report from the February 6th routine inspection, handwashing was an issue. The inspector noted that an employee “was observed wiping hands on cloth towels and touching hair and apron without washing hands before touching food”.

There is also a “toxic substance” violation for having home pest control products under a mop sink.

Another violation for not using approved thawing methods. The inspector snapped a picture of a whole fish thawing on a drain board.

Pest control also needs to be addressed for the restaurant to get its grade restored. The report says the inspector found roaches on a shelf in the kitchen, and one moving around in the walk-in cooler. Management also couldn’t provide proof of monthly pest control.
