10 South Florida kitchens rack up a total of 164 violations

Lauderdale Lakes restaurant owner claims ‘every kitchen has roaches’

State inspectors were busy last week. Records show 45 violations were found in one Miami-Dade restaurant alone.

The owner of one of those restaurants threatened to call his attorney on Local 10′s Jeff Weinsier despite the state ordering his business shut.

The violations found at Anne’s Paradise Take Out & Catering in Lauderdale Lakes are issues that the owner doesn’t want exposed.

Close to 50 live and dead roaches were found crawling around rices, sugar, pasta and take-out containers.

When confronted with the violations, the owner told Weinsier, “every kitchen has roaches” while threatening to call his lawyer.

Meanwhile, sewage or wastewater issues were found inside Bento in Davie.

Three of last week’s inspections were based on complaints.
