Food 4 Thought - Country club's kitchen in Brownsville isn't up to par

Valley International Country Club in Brownsville scores a double bogey at its restaurant.

Los Campeones on 95 Country Club Road scored high demerits in back-to-back inspections.

Kitchen cops found expired bread, a cross-contamination concern with open foods, missing towels for proper sanitation and dirty equipment.

Photos obtained by the Food Patrol highlighted dirty conditions in the kitchen.There were 25 demerits on an initial February inspection.

Los Campeones showed little improvement on a re-inspection one week later with 24 demerits, according to a report shown by the restaurant TMs general manager.

Sergio Casas invited the Food Patrol to return after the 29th of February.

That TMs when they plan to call the city for a third inspection.
