I was wondering why they had not been answering their phone this week.

Yesterday my wife suggested it may have been due to a vacation.

When I offered what we now know was the correct explanation, I was told I was being "negative".

If it's mice, a few cats might help.

Oh wait, never mind...

There are many types of infestation, rodent and roach are the most common and hardest to eliminate. Walmart could be the next on the list.

The fact is that both rodents and roaches spread quickly. Basements, overheads and any crack in a foundation. Both are looking for food. The proximity of Walmarts could be a problem for the manager, it will test the sanitation program. Geography has nothing to do with it.

Walmart has the answer, as always, for dealing with roaches: Walmart sells the infamous Roach Motel ...... where roaches move in, and never move out!

Back in the 1970's ..... can recall that yellow two-pak of Roach Motels with boxer Muhammad Ali on the plastic yellow wrapper proclaiming; "Roaches move in, and never move out!" ....

Florida gets around the "Roach" stigma by calling them "Palmetto bugs". But it's Florida who's the champ of HUGE roaches—including this Genera:

That's why I said "somewhat"!

But, if you're not the same as when you went in... did you REALLY ever leave?

Anyone see any workers doing anything here ? I haven't seen anything at all, so for the forseeable future it's down to Rochester for Sushi (plus Chinese or Hibachi) at Eastern Paradise. Well worth the trip, but would be nice to have a local spot back as well.....

Default infestation

As I suggested in a previous post the elimination of roaches is difficult and will take time . Work will probably take place at night so as not to place the public in any danger from fumigation work. Also, any evidence of pest control work during the day is bad publicity.

Default Disgusting!

Have to agree with Billy Bob on this one...There is absolutely no reason for a restaurant to be shut down by the health department. They knew they had issues and did nothing to correct it. Any responsible restaurant owner would of taken care of the issue long before the health department had to step in! They should of shut it down themselves to clean the place up if they had to. You do whatever it takes for the safety of your customers to provide a safe and healthy food serving environment period! You don't wait for the health department to shut you down!

So is being closed with a red board of health notice in the window.

I imagine they're done at this point as it's tough to live down getting closed.

But yes, I would rather have seen them open rather than closed, but even if they opened with a clean bill of health today I am not sure I would be in a rush to go back as the drive to Rochester is actually quite nice this time of year

Default Phu Jee...

I don't see this place mentioned much. It's in Meredith on Main St. It's primarily food of the Hunan and Szechuan regions (although a Pu Pu Platter does appear on the menu). It's good basic Chinese food and they have a great lunch menu. Good size rice plate here, cost less than a sub sandwich elsewhere. I've only been there twice and liked it very much...Goin' back soon.

Outside of San Francisco and China (well, maybe not China) I almost never eat Chinese food. SF has some of the best Chinese food I've had. A cock roach crawling up the wall, goes almost unnoticed.

In Hong Kong I ate at a restaurant that had the kitchen in a metal vault, no windows and huge locks on the door. The food tasted good, whatever it was.

Chinatown, NYC has some pretty awesome food. Especially the duck and pork

You can quote portions of an article as part of your commentary. You can't cut and paste an entire article or even portions without comment.

Whenever possible just post a link to the original article instead of a copy and paste.

I drove through the WalMart parking lot Thursday and saw their OPEN sign was lit.

Wifey says she won't go ever again, even if it was a totally different type of restaurant.

I guess I'm going solo...

Default The YUCK factor...

Is hard to overcome...

However, I have to think, unless the owners are morons, that this is now a very clean place.

As I have posted before, eat in Chinatown in San Francisco and be prepared for a circus of things running around.

I remember many, many years ago eating at a Carl’s Pagoda in Boston’s Chinatown, it was common to see many unwanted “guests” there, didn’t deter us at all as the food was always spectacular, boy do I miss that place.

Thumbs down

I used to deliver food products to oriental restaurants around the state. There weren’t to many that were clean. Open 5 gallon buckets of soy sauce, open bags of uncooked rice stored in the basement on the floor, employees smoking and eating in the kitchen... yuuum!

A rule to follow is don’t eat them, ever!
