WEBSTER - “I've never given anyone an A+ before,” said Health Agent Cathleen Liberty after this week's inspection of the Empire Wok restaurant on Worcester Road.
“It was like a brand new facility, I couldn't find a single violation,” she reported to the Board of Health at its meeting on Monday.
“The kitchen was immaculate,” echoed board member Nancie Zecco, who accompanied Ms. Liberty on the official inspection.
The board had shut down the restaurant portion of the establishment on March 19 after Ms. Liberty found numerous critical violations relating to food-borne illnesses at a routine inspection. The restaurant was allowed to reopen a week later after the violations had been corrected.
At the time, Ms. Liberty provided restaurant owner Dong Yeo Ying with a list of resources to help him meet the requirements to reopen and address the violations on an ongoing basis. Since then, the owner has gone the extra mile to get the highest grade possible, she noted.
“They lost a lot of business,” said Ms. Liberty. “I hope people will visit them again now.”
As for Ms. Zecco, she's already checked it out herself this week. “It was excellent,” she reported.
