At least they weren’t serving cat…or horse

Things could have been a whole lot worse for this restaurant owner, imagine the fuss if cat or horse was found on the premises:

The owner of a southside Chinese restaurant has been fined more than $5000 for unsafe food practices.

The breaches at the eatery were described as being at the “low end of the scale” during a sentencing in the ACT Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The issues were uncovered during an inspection of the Lisa Chinese Restaurant in Chisholm just as staff were preparing for the dinner rush one night in November 2010. 

The breaches related to improper food storage, the dirty state of the premises and its fittings, and the failure to have proper hand washing facilities.

The restaurant was shut down for a week following the inspection, something that Magistrate Peter Morrison noted caused a loss of income and embarrassment for the owner.
