Guam - Potential fire hazards brought cooking to a halt at Oriental Kitchen in Mangilao today. The popular eatery was ordered to stop cooking food after the Guam Fire Department's inspectors cited the establishment for its grease traps, grease buildup in the hood and duct system and exposed wiring.
Inspectors say the violations create fire hazards and the owners of the restaurant were ordered to stop preparing food and cooking until the violations are corrected.
GFD will conduct a re-inspection once the restaurant gets a certified technician to make the necessary repairs. Until that happens, Oriental Kitchen can only serve food but not prepare it there. Despite the violations found today, the facility still boasts an "A" rating from Public Health, which is posted on the door.
