Toxic chemicals stored near food at North Charleston restaurant

Restaurant Report Card

Toxic chemicals stored close to food was just one of several violations that forced the Department of Health and Environmental Control inspectors to lower Peking Gourmet’s grade to a “C”.

The Rivers Avenue restaurant had several other priority violations that contributed to the lower grade.

Those violations include not having a certified food protection manager, not having warm enough water in the hand sinks, and a back room and kitchen cluttered with unnecessary items and litter.

El Mercadito and Taqueria on Maybank Highway also at a “C”.

DHEC inspectors scored the restaurant at 98% on the report.

The lone violation was a lack of a certified food protection manager.
