JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Ipho Vietnamese Cuisine is a relatively new restaurant located on Beach Boulevard in Jacksonville.
As soon as we walked in we met Tony, the owner. Tony offered to give us a tour of the kitchen to show his customers - it's clean. Take a look at some of the high priority violations we found in the state's most recent health inspection report:
22 violations, 8 high priority
Household use only pesticide located in the restaurant. A can of raid was found in the dry storage.
The restaurant license expired on June 1st.
The dish machine wasn't sanitizing properly. The inspector discontinued use until it could be fixed.Tony tells us all the violations are fixed now except for the expired license. He says they are working on that now.
A new employee at Ipho wants customers to know it's a great place to eat, "I try to keep it clean on my end.... It's my first week here but I will do my part as best I can."
Here are the other restaurants at the top of the list this week for high priority violations.
