Raw eggs, mosquito larvae found at failing eateries

Culebra Super Meat Market, El Nogal fail inspection

SAN ANTONIO - A popular meat market and downtown Mexican restaurant just failed their recent health inspection.

Metro Health gave a failing score of 47 demerits to the Culebra Super Meat Market in the 14000 block of Nacogdoches. A few of the problem-areas included:

A tray of raw eggs was seen sitting under a sink.

Employees were not washing their hands as needed.

Broken dishware was in the handwashing sink.

The staff was told to clean every four hours and log those cleanings.

KSAT-12's Behind the Kitchen Door has some good news to report. Over half the violations were fixed during the actual inspection. The meat market's manager was told to correct everything else by Thanksgiving or sooner.

El Nogal, located on N St Mary's Street, failed their inspection with 36 demerits. Their demerits included:

Raw eggs and hot dogs at room temp.

No one was washing their hands.

The mopsink did not not drain into the sewer, was blocked and had mosquito larvae in it.

Dirty knives were found sitting on a shelf.

El Nogal was given 24 hours to get the mop sink repaired. A follow-up inspection is scheduled for Friday.

The following businesses just received zero demerits on their latest health inspections:

El Buen Gusto Mexican Cafe on Tezel Road, Fourth Street Cafe, Pizza Classics on Broadway, Restaurant Veracruz on Bandera Road and the Valero corner store on Rittiman just west of Interstate 35.
