Main Chinese Buffet in Lacey was set to be re-inspected Wednesday (Dec. 22) after it was closed by Thurston County health officials a week ago, according to a notice affixed to the door of the business.

The closure of the eatery at 5580 Martin Way E. was confirmed by a county employee Tuesday.

The business was inspected in November and again on Dec. 15, but after the restaurant showed no improvement during the second inspection — and racked up about 100 red points in violations — the decision was made to close it, said Art Starry, environmental health division director for Thurston County Public Health and Social Services.

L.A.’s main Chinese drag awaits California COVID reopening

As California prepared to fully reopen, business at YungHo, a Taiwanese breakfast cafe on Valley Boulevard in San Gabriel, was almost back to normal.

Customers streamed in to pick up fried turnip cakes, rice porridge and youtiao, a churro-like fried dough, to go. A science teacher placed a large order of black sesame mochi and warm soy milk to celebrate her last Zoom class.

But the phone constantly rang with people asking questions that hinted at the upheaval of the last year: “Are you open for indoor dining?” “What items are still on the menu?”

A new Ballarat Central Japanese-inspired restaurant hopes to bring main street to former glory | The Courier

news, latest-news,

A new Japanese restaurant in the heart of Ballarat’s CBD hopes to breathe life into a troubled section of the city’s iconic thoroughfare.

The lower end of Sturt Street has been bedevilled by long-term vacancies and uncertainty over landmark buildings including the notorious Norwich Plaza. But there may be good news ahead for other key locations like the Unicorn Hotel and this new restaurant opposite. Kosaten puts a twist on the experience. Customers order through a tableside tablet, their meals are cooked fresh and delivered by Japanese-made sushi trains. The formula has proved successful in Hobart and Launceston and owner Kaz Kojima hopes to expand the brand to regional Victoria. PREVIOUS COVERAGE:
