Ming Du Down for the Count – Again

Ming Du just Ming Doesn’t have luck with keeping things sanitary. Without trying to appear like I relish the closure of an independent business, doubly so one whose roast meats can’t be beat, Lunch’er Paulie reported to us that the magical inspection fairies of the DoH have again closed Ming Du for the second time this year.

Check it out after the jump…

They must have things down to a science by now – they’ve got everything up off the floor and the whole place is getting cleaned out. The ovens and cases were dead empty. Aaaaand here are the highlights from the DoH restaurant inspection search engine:

  • Filth flies or food/refuse/sewage-associated (FRSA) flies present in facility’s food and/or non-food areas. Filth flies include house flies, little house flies, blow flies, bottle flies and flesh flies. Food/refuse/sewage-associated flies include fruit flies, drain flies and Phorid flies.
  • Facility not vermin proof. Harborage or conditions conducive to attracting vermin to the premises and/or allowing vermin to exist.
  • Food contact surface not properly washed, rinsed and sanitized after each use and following any activity when contamination may have occurred.

I usually tend to follow the axiom “once is happenstance, twice is enemy action.” I think I’ll keep my roast meat centered around Main Noodle House for the next forever.

Looking for cheap nearby options? Go Go Curry is literally right next door. The best $1 slice on 8th Ave, NYC Fried Chicken, is barely across the street, and if you gotta have steam-table Chinese, you should definitely hit up Lunch Box Buffet or, if you dare brave spoiled seafood, Fuji Bakery.
