Restaurant Report Card for Jan. 12: Old tuna salad

HOUSTON – Health inspectors found some not-so-appetizing things at restaurants across Houston.

If 23-day-old tuna salad does not meet your culinary standards, you'll be happy to know health inspectors made employees at Antone's at 2724 West T.C. Jester throw it out. When inspectors stopped by on Dec. 30, they said they also found mortadella with a use-by date of Dec. 19.

At the Jack in the Box at 7699 Katy Freeway, inspectors said they found a case of bread under a leaking condensing unit in the walk-in freezer.

Inspectors asked employees at the Morningside Thai Restaurant on Morningside to clean the dead roach and roach droppings from the top of the dish machine.

There were rodent droppings on the floor of the storage area at Jolynn's Crawfish Restaurant at 10834 Beechnut and flies in the kitchen of Mayuri at 5857 Westheimer.

There were no flies in the Safari Restaurant at 10014 Bissonnet, but inspectors said they saw a fly trap located directly above the food preparation area.

Inspectors asked employees to clean the black build-up off the back wall of the ice bin at the Picadilly Cafeteria in Almeda Mall.
