Seafood kitchen reels in high demerits and rodent poop
The catch of the day at Captain Al TMs in San Benito appears to be a rodent.
The restaurant on 2180 West Highway 77 scored 42 demerits.
A kitchen cop found rodent poop on the ice machine.
There was also off temperature shrimp at 67 degrees, dirty equipment and a cross-contamination with the seafood.
The kitchen was also closed because of backed up sewage.
Nobody at the restaurant was able to speak with the Food Patrol Wednesday afternoon about the dirty dining.
A re-inspection showed the business was allowed to resume operations with just 3 demerits about a week after the initial check-up, according to reports obtained by the Food Patrol.
