The Food Patrol held a former top performer sushi restaurant in Weslaco accountable for 31 demerits on a recent health report.
Kato Sushi on 2017 W. Expressway 83 scored the most demerits this week.
Kitchen cops found cooked fish left out at room temperature, dirty equipment and mold in the cooler.
The condition of a toaster was also described by a chief health inspector as filthy and greasy.
The head sushi chef disputed most of the violations as petty.
He also found it hard to believe that an inspector could find 31 demerits after the restaurant scored 0 on the previous health report.
The sushi shocker wasn TMt where the problems ended this week for Valley kitchens.
A movie theater in the mid-Valley was busted for featuring roaches!
